Good Sports: INDIA WINS U19 WORLD CUP FOR FOURTH TIME

Once known as the Youth World Cup, the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup has been held a dozen times since its inception in 1988, and India has taken home the trophy every third time.

The fourth title came last month at the Bay Oval in Tauranga, New Zealand, where India scored an eight-wicket victory over Australia, which was also bidding for its fourth title.

Left-hander Manjot Kalra scored a sparkling 101 not out as India coasted to 220 for two in 38.5 overs, much to the delight of Indian supporters who formed the majority of the 3,000-odd spectators. A combined bowling effort had earlier helped dismiss Australia for 217 in 47.2 overs.

“Winning this World Cup means a lot,” India captain Prithvi Shaw said. “We did not expect so much of support from fans here, but it has been a really fascinating tournament for us and we have had some really memorable moments.”
