Bangladesh clinch first ever U-19 WC title


Sports desk, Feb 09: A long-held dream comes true not just for 11 under-19 players in South Africa, but millions of cricket lovers in Bangladesh as the country wins its first World Cup by winning the final against India by three wickets.
The rain has subsided and the covers come off. The players are getting ready to come back to the field. A revised target of 170 has been set for Bangladesh. They need 7 runs from 30 deliveries.

The players have gone off the field with the drizzle turning into a more steady rain. The conditions are dark and Bnagladesh need a further 15 runs for victory from nine overs. Bangladesh are ahead of the DLS par score at the moment.

Tyagi, a major wicket-taker in the India, finishes his 10 overs after Bishnoi. The pacer conceeded 33 in his 10 overs and remained wicketless.

Leg spinner Bisihnoi finishes his 10 overs, bagging four wickets for 30 runs. Bangladesh would consider it a threat averted for now after his damaging spell left the entire batting lineup distraught.
