India pulled off a sensational eight-wicket win over Australia in the big final of the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup to become the only side in history to lift the coveted title for a record fourth time.
A clinical bowling performance by India saw them restrict Australia to 216, a total that Prithvi Shaw and his men gunned down comfortably in the end – with 67 balls remaining – to etch their name in history books.
Gill was awarded Man of the Tournament, while Kalra was Man of the Match.
Rahul Dravid, who coached this side to World Cup glory, said: “Really proud of the boys and the effort they put in. Proud of the effort they put in and couldn’t be happier for them. Hopefully it’s a memory they cherish for a long, long time, but hopefully not the lasting memory and they have many more great moments and bigger things in future. I don’t want to mention names but everyone in the support staff has put in a great effort. We do the best for the kids.”
