Team India is U-19 World Cup champion

Townsville: India lifted the ICC Under-19 World Cup for the third time in the tournament’s history with a six-wicket win over hosts Australia on Sunday, with skipper Unmukt Chand yet again showing his big-match temperament with an unbeaten century.

Australia had been kept to 225 for 8 after Sandeep Sharma took four wickets, and the win was completed with Unmukt carrying his bat for 111 off 130 deliveries, his fourth century in a knock-out match this year. He was ably assisted by Baba Aparajith (33) and wicketkeeper Smit Patel (62 not out), who hit the winning runs with a boundary as India won with 14 balls remaining.
