It's over and India have won the World Cup for a record 4th time. They chase down 217 in 38.5 overs with eight wickets in hand. Manjot Kalra, you beauty. What an occasion he chose for himself. His 101 not out has made all the difference. However, let's not forget that the Indian bowlers also did a great job by bowling out Australia for just 216 on a batting-friendly pitch. All in all, it's team work that has sealed the deal for India. Great win.   

3 February 2018, 13:24 PM

Century for Manjot Kalra off 101 balls. It's all over bar the shouting. India are definitely going to win it. 

3 February 2018, 13:06 PM

India 181/2 in 33 overs, Manjot 92*, Desai 18*. Now it India's game to lose. The way both these batsmen are batting, it won't be long before they get to their target of 217.

3 February 2018, 12:43 PM

There is no stopping Manjot Kalra today. What an occasion he has chosen to unleash his great talent. There has hardly been a false stroke from him so far. 150 up for India. Slowly and steadily, they are heading towards the target. India 151/2 in 27 overs. Kalra 76*, Desai 5*. 

3 February 2018, 12:26 PM

Second wicket goes down for India. Shubman Gill is bowled by Uppal for 31 and the 60-run stand comes to an end. Really against the run the play this wicket has fallen. India 133/2 in 22 overs, need 84 more to win. 

3 February 2018, 12:05 PM

Manjot Kalra has indeed risen to this big occasion as he reaches his fifty off 47 balls. Shubman Gill at the other is equally formidable. The match is slowly moving away from the Aussies. India 110/1 in 17 overs. 

3 February 2018, 11:57 AM

100 up for India. Shubman Gill joined Manjot Kalra after Prithvi Shaw's departure and  got into his stride straight away. Manjot, on the other hand, has looked imperious all through his innings today having whacked a couple of big sixes. India 103/1 in 16 overs, Manjot 44*, Gill 20*, need 114 more to win. 

3 February 2018, 11:41 AM

First wicket for India goes down. Captain Prithvi Shaw is cleaned up by fast bowler Sutherland. The ball cut back in a little as Shaw attempted a drive on the offside. He made 29. India 71 for 1 in 11.4 overs in pursuit of 217. 

3 February 2018, 11:27 AM

50 up for India. Prithvi Shaw picks up two fours off the Hadley over to take India past 50, both shots easy on the eye. India 52/0 in 9 overs, in pursuit of 217. Shaw 29, Manjot 16.

3 February 2018, 11:15 AM

Play resumes at Bay Oval after a short rain break. No overs lost. The break doesn't seem to have distracted the Indian batsmen, Prithvi Shaw and Manjot Kalra, as both pick up where they had left off.  India 31 for 0 in 6 overs in pursuit of 217.

3 February 2018, 10:47 AM

Rain halts the proceedings at Bay Oval. In pursuit of 217, India are 23/0 in four overs. Shaw 10, Manjot 9. While it doesn't look serious and play should resume in a while, it may be noted that there is a reserve day in place for this match, which means if the match doesn't get completed today, then both the teams will again take the field tomorrow in order to finish the contest.



3 February 2018, 10:26 AM

Here starts India's chase. Prithvi Shaw and Manjot Kalra walk to the pitch. Ryan Hadley will start the proceedings for Australia. Remember, whoever wins this game will become the first team to claim four World Cup trophies. Prithvi takes a single off the second ball to open India's account. Manjot is also off the blocks straight away. Two more runs in the over, including a wide. India 4/0 in 1 over.    

3 February 2018, 09:56 AM

India finally wrap up Australia's innings. First they effect a BJ Bolt run out and shortly after Shivam Mavi has R Hadley caught behind. Australia 216 all out in 47.1 overs. Abhinav Mukund thinks it's going to be a cakewalk for India, while Dean Jones believes India will have to play out of their skin to chase down this target. Whatever happens in the end, the Indian bowlers, for now, can pat themselves on the back for bowling the way they did. Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Ishan Porel, Anukul Roy, Shiva Singh all took two wickets each. Shivam Mavi chipped in with one. Stay tuned, we will be back as and when India begin their chase.   

3 February 2018, 09:46 AM

India are into Australia's tail and Kamlesh Nagarkoti has begun wreaking havoc. Cleans up J Evans with a fiery delivery. Australia 214/8 in 46.1 overs. 

3 February 2018, 09:44 AM

Big wicket for India. Just the wicket they needed. The resilient Jonathan Merlo goes. Reverse-sweeps Anukul Roy to poor effect and Shiva Singh takes a nice running catch. He departs for 76. Australia 212/7 in 45.3 overs.     

3 February 2018, 09:26 AM

Shiva Singh strikes again, this time W Sutherland is his victim. Induces him to go for a drive on the offside and has him caught behind. Great work there by wicketkeeper Desai. India are now well and truly back in the contest. Be that as it may, this match is on. Both teams will have to play out of their skin to take the trophy. Australia 191/6 in 41.3 overs. 

3 February 2018, 09:22 AM

Shiva Singh strikes for India as he sends back NA McSweeney. He takes the catch off his own bowling. India desperately needed to break this partnership. The batsman departs for 23. Australia 183/5 in 39.2 overs. 

3 February 2018, 08:43 AM

Merlo (52*) completes a well-compiled half-century. For the record, the highest successful run-chase in an U-19 World Cup final is 241. If the Aussies keep going at the current run-rate without losing wickets going into the death overs, they should cross that mark.

Australia 154/4 in 33 overs


3 February 2018, 08:28 AM

Anukul Roy strikes. India get the much-needed wicket of Param Uppal (34) to break a dangerous-looking stand. A top edge straight back to the bowler.
