India Won ICC Under-19 World Cup

India lifting theĀ  ICC Under-19 World CupĀ  trophy for the 3rd time.

Unmukt Chand the Man-of-the-Match: I do not know what is happening right now, thankful to God, taken the team through, the Aussies played very well but we came on top. Townsville has been amazing for us. The journey has been good. I would like to thank the support staff, my team, we had a great time together, it is a very emotional moment, like to thank all the people in India, who prayed for us and to all the Indian fans at the ground.

Bosisto the Man-of-the-Series: Everyone is pretty depleted, we appreciate all the support, we dropped crucial catches and we were caught on the wrong side, the Indians did a great work, it is not the first time he (Unmukt) has terrorized us. Thanks to all and the Indian team.


Smit Patel: The captain appreciated me, I was tentative intially, he gave me confidence and then I got going. Stick to the basics as the coach advised. About Chand, he is a fluent player, it was awesome batting with him, we were confident that if we batted together till the end we could do it.

India win by 6 wickets and are the ICC U19 World Cup Champions, the Indian players rush onto the field and they are very much excited and so are the fans. Chand is draped with the Indian flag, who has played an excellent knock. The camera follows Smit Patel, who has played an equally important role. The Aussie team in a huddle, they played well but they dropped few chances in the end that could have made some difference to the outcome of the match, who knows, but it is all India at the moment. The players shake hands, an excellent final.
