India have won the Under-19 World Cup 2022 by 4 wickets against England Under-19. With this win, the Boys in Blue have lifted their fifth title.
Dinesh Bana hit the winning shot that sailed over the boundary for a six.
IND 146/4 after 40 overs Raj Bawa and Nishant Sindhu have carried the responsibility to take India forward slowly and steadily. The duo is nearing a 50-run partnership and have become a thorn in the flesh for England U19. The Three Lions are looking to break this partnership.
IND 100/4 after 30 overs India have reached the 100-run mark but this has come with quite some hiccups as the Boys in Blue suffered back to back jolts when James Sales removed Shaik Rasheed (50) and Yash Dhull (17). Raj Bawa and Nishant Sindhu have huge responsibilities in driving India to the victory.
Shaik Rasheed departs soon after his fifty.
IND 89/2 after 25 overs Can Yash-Rasheed get India over the winning line and lift India's 5th title in the Under-19 World Cup?
IND 57/2 after 20 overs The two pillars of India U19 team- Yash Dhull and Shaik Rasheed are on the pitch after Harnoor Singh's wicket. Aspinwall bowls a short ball down leg which takes the glove of Harnoor Singh and goes flying wide to the keeper Alex Horton who dives towards his left to take a spectacular one-haned catch. With the wicket, a good 49-run stand between Harnoor and Rasheed comes to an end.
IND 33/1 after 10 overs Harnoor and Rasheed drive India and look confident as they face England bowlers now. The duo has steadied the Indian side, are rotating the strike well and inching towards the 190-run target on the baord. England, on the other hand look to break this partnership.
IND 18/1 after 5 overs India are in the same shoes as England in terms of starting their innings with the bat. England's bowling attack has been on point and the Indian batters- Harnoor and Rasheed are wary of their bowling attack. The duo is steadying India after the loss of early wicket when Angkrish was sent to the pavilion for a duck.
IND 0/1 in 0.2 overs WICKET! Joshua Boyden removes Angkrish Raghuvanshi for a duck! The away delivery from Boyden, Angkrish attempts a half push and gets an edge which was pocketed by keeper Alex Horton.
India need 190 runs to win from 50 overs.
ENG 189/10 after 44.5 overs after Ravi Kumar got India the breakthrough as he removed James Rew for 95. More than the ball, it was Kaushal Tambe hogging the limelight because of the one-handed catch that he clasped by his fingertips in the deep. Thereafter, Ravi scalped another wicket and Raj Bawa toppled the last won to bundle England and return with a five-wicket hall.
ENG 167/7 after 40 overs
ENG 145/7 after 35 overs 50-run partnership has come up between James Rew and James Sales as the duo take England's innings score. The two are rotating the strike well and have taken England out of the choppy waters after losing quick wickets in the start. India desperately look to break this crucial partnership.
ENG 118/7 after 30 overs England reach 100-run mark where James Rew has been the chief contributor with his patient 50. The England batter reached his half-century in 79 balls. The innings have come just when the Three Lions needed it the most. He is jamming well with James Sales and the duo are driving England.
ENG 96/7 after 25 overs Just when James Rew and Alex Horto were trying to up England's ante, Kaushal Tambe struck to break the 30-run stand between the two. India are trying bowling combinations to get the quick wickets of England's tail ender and walk down to chase with the bat.
ENG 70/6 after 20 overs James Rew and Alex Horton steady England's ship after Raj Bawa took his fourth scalp in the 17th over. Indian bowling lineup has put England U19 colts under the pump with their fine bowling. The Three Lions opted to bat after winning the toss but the decision looks to have backfired them.
ENG 52/5 after 15 overs After Ravi Kumar, Raj Bawa has caused ruckus to the England U19 team as he scalped three wickets during India's last five overs. From tempting George Thomas (27) to play a lose shot to give an easy catch at cover, he removed William Luxton (4) and George Bell (0) in successive deliveries. England are badly looking for a partnership to get some runs on the board. The Boys in Blue, having tasted some blood early with regular scalps, look to bundle the Three Lions at the earliest.
ENG 37/2 after 10 overs George Thomas and James Rew are doing the repair job for England who suffered a jolt by losing two wickets inside the five overs. The duo is looking for runs and better the Three Lions' run rate that is currently below 4 per over. Besides, Thomas got a life in the seventh over where he was dropped a sitter by Kaushal Tambe in the first slip off Raj Bawa's bowling.
The powerplay is done and dusted and England have much to do with the bat currently.
ENG 21/2 after 5 overs TWO WICKETS! India's left-arm quick defied the predictions of Sir Vivian Richards Stadium's being a batting paradise with his fine bowling. Ravi is on the money as he removed ENG opener Jacob Bethell (2) in an lbw of a delivery that came angling in into the left hander. Soon, he removed Tom Prest for a duck who got a thick inside edge crashing onto the stumps. India are off to a fine start as they have managed to take the early wickets on a batting friendly turf.
England Under-19 have won the toss and elected to bat first.

Skipper Yash Dhull gave a glimpse of his rare talent with a well-paced hundred which guided powerhouse India into its fourth consecutive U-19 World Cup final with an emphatic 96-run win over Australia here. Dhull struck a sublime 110 in as many balls and shared a game-changing 204-run stand with his deputy Shaik Rasheed (94 off 108 balls) to fire India to a formidable 290 for five after opting to bat on Wednesday.
"He (Virat Kohli) gave us his best wishes as the team is doing well. So, his words will give us confidence. When a senior player speaks with the team, the team morale gets a boost. He spoke to us about some basic things such as how to play normal cricket, how to stick to our game plan, etc. It was good to interact with him," said Dhull as the team prepares for the final at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound here later on Saturday
