Young Indians crowned champions after defeating Australia by 8 wickets

ICC U-19 World Cup India to face Australia India to take on Australia in U-19 Cricket World Cup Final

Jack Edwards (28) and Max Bryant (14) batted at a run a ball through the first five overs.

Australia easily qualified for the tournament's final before they went down to India by eight wickets in New Zealand on Saturday, but didn't feature in the team of the tournament.

Throughout the tournament, India remained unbeaten; however, Australia suffered one defeat - and that was against India in the above mentioned game. When we were there they showed a rerun of the 2012 final and I started checking upon a few things. The victory triggered off an avalanche of congratulatory messages from various quarters with present and former senior Indian team stars joining President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in hailing the Indian colts. Well, it was under the guidance of Rahul Dravid that the Indian team was able to clinch the title. Will Sutherland (1-36) gave Australia some respite when he castled Shaw but player of the tournament Shubman Gill (31) and Kalra played positively adding 60 runs for the second wicket off just 58 deliveries. Jonathan Merlo top-scored for Australia with 76 while four Indian bowlers took two wickets each.

Manjot kalra was awarded man of the match for this brilliant 101 and Shubman Gill was named man of the series for his consistent innings in Under-19 World Cup. The runs continued to come at brisk pace on resumption with Shaw bringing the 50-run opening stand in the ninth over with a couple of boundaries. Uppal and Merlo's applaudable 4th-wicket run was shredded in 29th over as the legspinner Anukul Roy dismissed Param for 34. It was the final, a Manjot scored a really crucial hundred.

Apple overtakes Samsung in shrinking smartphone market:…
Overall smartphone sales were down 6.3 percent with 403.5 million handsets shipped, according to the survey. Apple shipped 215.8 million iPhones, up 0.2 percent over 2016.


Dodging all attempts of Aussie pacers to bowl Kalra and Desai, the winsome duo lead the team to an outstanding victory. They failed to make good total against India, a side known for good batting. In the bowling department, Ankul Roy and Kamlesh Nagarkoti have found spots for themselves.

The Kiwi number three Finn Allen grabbed the fourth spot having made 338 runs, which includes a century and two fifties, in the tournament.

Earlier Ishan Porel (2/30) and Kamlesh Nagarkoti (2/36) had sent back the top-order with the latter picking up the prized wicket of Oz skipper Jason Sangha (13).
