Good Sports: World Cup Win for U-19 Squad

India’s youth cricket team won all six of its matches at the 2022 Under-19 Cricket World Cup in West Indies, overcoming formidable opponents as well as a rash of Covid cases to bring home the trophy for a record fifth time.

Beating England by 4 wickets in the final at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, Antigua and Barbuda, on February 4, the young cricketers gave testament to the wealth of talent that India possesses.

Team captain Yash Dhull, a 19-year-old from Delhi, hopes to play for the national team within 18 months. “That is my target but if I am not able to do that in the 18-month time frame, I will keep working hard till I attain my goal,” he told PTI.

The Under-19 Cricket World Cup has been held 14 times (biennially since 1998) and India has now won two more titles than Australia.​
