Yesterday, the young Indian team created history at Viv Richards stadium. India became the first team to win the U-19 World Cup for the 5th time in history. India won the U-19 World Cup in the years 2000, 2008, 2012, 2018, and 2022.
This young Indian team was dominant throughout the tournament and it was unbeaten. India beat SA by 45 runs followed by defeating Ireland by 174 runs, beat Uganda by 326 runs, beat Bangladesh by 5 wickets, beat Australia by 96 runs in Semi-finals and beat England by 4 wickets in the finals.
BCCI announced a 40 lakh reward to each Indian Cricket player and 25 lakh for supporting staff.
BCCI chief Ganguly congratulated the under 19-team and the support staff and the selectors for winning the world cup in such a magnificent way. He also said the cash prize announced by BCCI of 40 lakhs is a small token of appreciation but their efforts are beyond value and magnificent.
