India won U-19 World Cup Cricket

Townsville, Australia: Captain Unmukt Chand slammed an unbeaten 111 runs to stun defending champions Australia and power India to their third U-19 World Cup title in Townsville.

This is India's third U-19 World Cup title after Mohammad Kaif's team won it in 2000 and Virat Kohli's side won it in 2008.

India successfully chased down the target of 226 runs with 2.2 overs to spare.

Earlier, India frittered away the early advantage as defending champions Australia recovered from a shaky start to post a competitive 225 for 8 in the final of the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup on Sunday.

Electing to field after winning the toss amid overcast conditions, the Indians had the Aussies on the mat at 38 for 4 before host skipper William Bosisto (87 not out) rebuilt the innings with the help of some notable contributions down the order.

Both teams named the same XIs that had got them through the knockouts. While Australia, aiming for a fourth title, entered the final undefeated, India had lost one game in the first group stage to the West Indies.

Sandeep Sharma was the pick of the bowlers for India, grabbing four wickets in his 10 overs that conceded 54 runs and included a couple of maidens.

In conditions that have favoured bowlers all through the tournament, two-time winners India could not have asked for a better start as Sharma struck in his very first over.

He removed both the openers -- Cameron Bancroft (2) and Jimmy Peirson (0) -- in his first spell itself. The Oz team was looking down the barrel as a couple of more wickets fell in quick succession.

However, Bosisto took charge of the proceedings and gradually steadied the ship sharing a 65-run fifth wicket stand with Travis Head (37) to start with.

But the Indians managed to get back when Harmeet Singh and Baba Aparajith combined to run out Head after a mix-up between the two batsmen.

Head took off for a single from the non-strikers end, but was sent back by Bosisto. Harmeet moved quickly to pick up the ball and threw it to Aparajith, who ran out Head.

Head's 56-ball knock included five fours. The Indians, however, let slip the advantage once again as Bosisto found another able partner in Ashton Turner (43).

Together the duo accelerated the scoring rate and put on 93 runs for the sixth wicket.

Turner was the more aggressive of the two batsmen, sending down three boundaries and a six during his 50-ball knock before becoming Sharma's third victim of the match.

The Aussie score read 196 for six at that stage and it wasn't long before the Indians managed to send the tail back to the pavillion.

But Bosisto held fort at one end and his 120-ball patient innings included six boundaries.

More importantly, the skipper managed to take his team past the 200-mark, which gave the Aussies the crucial psychological edge as most of the games so far have been low-scoring thrillers.

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.

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.

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 India team.

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 NCA, and to all the people in India, who prayed for us and to all the Indian fans at the ground.
