➭ Bangladesh took over India by 3 wickets to become champions of the ICC U-19 World Cup.
It was quite surprising to know that India has lost the World Cup Final which was held on Sunday (09.02.2020). Most recently India U-19 team had won over Bangladesh in the 2019 Asia Cup final.
The competition between the Indian boys’ U-19 team and Bangladesh had always remained one-sided, since they first met in 2000 in the biennial tournament.
Both the teams have faced each other 23 times with the Indian colts dominating their counterparts on 18 occasions, while the Bangladesh team had won three times. Two of the matches lead to draw.
Their match on Sunday was the fourth meeting in the World Cup, where India had a 3-1 head-to-head advantage.
Most recent latest win with Bangladesh’s was in 2019 while the U-19 team of Indian boys beat them in the final of the 2019 Asia Cup in September 2019.
➭ So, this time it was hard to believe if India could lose the world cup.
Anyhow, it will take some time for us to believe everything that happened in that match.
Here are some of the glimpses of the match:
Winning captain, Akbar Ali: When asked about their success, it was told by him that, it was all about the hard work they had done over the last two years. Though, he had also revealed that he cannot thank the staff enough for their win. For this all the bowlers got emotional, and he continued saying that some of the things should not have happened. However, finally, he said that this was the start of something big for them.
India captain Priyam Garg: When the same thing was asked about their defeat, it was told by him that it was truly a bad day for them, but our boys fought really well. The entire team had made it difficult for them to reach up to the target, and he would like to thank his team for that. Toss was a big factor. This is known to be sportsmanship, which is delivered by the Indian Captain.
Player of the tournament: Yashasvi Jaiswal! Made 400 runs in the tournament (the most by any player), with four half centuries and a century.
“Praise pouring in for Bangladesh. This was quite the day in their history!”
