On Saturday India played the U19 CWC final against England and won it in a great style.
England had won the toss and batted first but the decision didn’t go as expected as England were bowled out for 189 and were not even able to play full 50 overs.
Raj Bawa picked up 5 wickets and Ravi Kumar also grabbed 4 with Kaushal Tambe sweeping the remaining one.
In response to a 189 from England India lost their first wicket before even scoring the first run. Then India became steady with their partnerships and with small but valuable partnerships India chased down the total in a great fashion as Dinesh Bala smashed a six out of the park and wrote history.For India Nishant Sindhu and Shaik Rasheed both scored half centuries and Raj Bawa scored 35 runs.
Raj Bawa got the Man of the Match award for his 5 wicket haul.
Now, India has become the first and only country to become the U19 CWC champions for five times.(2000, 2008,2012,2018,2022)
