Unmukt Chand guides India to victory over Australia in U-19 World Cup final

By Sagar Sambrani, India Contributor

Indian U-19 captain Unmukt Chand scored his fifth U-19 ODI century as India overcame a spirited Australian side to win the final of the ICC U-19 World Cup at the Tony Ireland Stadium in Townsville, Australia.

Skipper Chand was ably assisted by Baba Aparajith (33), who had performed consistently well in the tournament, and wicketkeeper Smit Patel (62*), with whom he shared an unbroken fifth wicket stand of 130 in his quest to lead his team to World Cup glory.

Earlier, Australian captain William Bosisto (87*), who was named  Man of the Series, anchored the innings with two consecutive half-century partnerships with Travis Head (37)  and Ashton Turner (43). Bosisto & Co managed to take the team to a competitive 225/8, recovering  from a poor start which saw them fall to 38/4.

Man of the Series… Bosisto’s 87* was in vain has India U-19 won by six wickets.

The chase of 226 happens to be the highest successful chase at the venue and also India’s best batting performance of the series.

The hosts, who were also defending champions, had won each of the three U-19 World Cup finals they were part of and were favourites to pick up the title for a record fourth time. However, with this win India has now equalled Australia’s three World Cup trophies.

India can now proudly claim to be world champions in the ICC World Cup and the U-19 World Cup format.

The future looks very bright for the men in blue.

The futures bright… India celebrate winning the U-19 World Cup
