Good Sports: Young Cricketers Win World Cup

The Indian women’s cricket team has reached the final of the World Cup three times, but each time fell short. The youth team, however, made the most of their first opportunity, returning home victorious from the recent ICC Women’s U-19 World Cup in South Africa.

The Indian team beat New Zealand by eight wickets in the semi-finals and England by seven wickets in the final to become the inaugural U-19 world champions. Shweta Sehrawat led the tournament in scoring with 297 runs, while team captain Shafali Verma, who also plays for the senior team, scored 172.

“I will look at this as a big achievement and look to use this to learn something more,” Verma said. “I will try to score more runs for India and am not going to be satisfied with this cup. This is just the beginning.”
