New Delhi: Rajya Sabha on Monday congratulated India Under-19 cricket team for winning the one-day international World Cup by beating defending champions Australia.

Members thumped their desks after Chairman Hamid Ansari congratulated the Indian team for winning the U-19 World Cup yesterday.

The win is all the more significant as this is for the third time that U-19s have won the limited over world championship, he said.

Mohammed Kaif and Virat Kohli led their respective teams to victory in 2000 and 2008 editions respectively.

Ansari said, "This victory has added another feather in the crown of Indian cricket" and India now holds both the senior and junior world titles.
