If there is one word that best describes India’s journey in the ICC U-19 Cricket World Cup 2018, it is ‘Dominating’. Unbeaten throughout the tournament, the Indian colts didn’t let Australia disturb their winning streak in the final. Man of the Match Manjot Kalra’s unbeaten century saw India winning the contest by 8 wickets.
With this U-19 world title in the kitty, India has become the first team to bag four ICC U-19 Cricket World Cup titles. Watch how the Twitterati reacted to India’s win:
Absolutely thrilled by the stupendous achievement of our young cricketers. Congratulations to them on winning the Under-19 World Cup. This triumph makes every Indian extremely proud.
