India win U-19 WC


In a rain affected low scoring tense final, India won the under 19 World cup. India won all the games that they played and thoroughly deserved the cup. It does bode well for India, but they have to nurture these youngsters so that they move into the senior team in a few years time – and stay there. India were runners up a couple of years ago losing the finals to Pakistan. Two of the stars from that WC – Piyush Chawla and Rohit Sharma are already playing for the senior team. And from the team that played the World cup before that, players like Uthappa, Raina, Karthik and VRV Singh have already represented Team India.

It is good to know that junior cricket is producing a lot of talent that eventually play for the Indian team. But there is also the tendency for a lot of players who show plenty of promise at this level to eventually fall away. For instance, only Yuvraj Singh from the team that won the World cup in 1999-2000 is still playing for India.

  1. I bet most of the playing eleven will be snapped up in IPL soon (if not already), and some of them will be seen in national side within a year or two! I like the spinner Jadeja of the lot.

  2. @noflylist

    A lot of them will be snapped up by the IPL because, if nothing else, the playing rules dictate that each team has to include at least 4 under-21 players!

  3. A great Sunday for Indian Cricket indeed!!!!

  4. How about this nice gesture from BCCI!!

    Every member of U 19 team gets 15 lakh rupees each and the Coach—wait for it–he won a world Cup as the Coach of SriLanka–Dav Whatmore gets 10 lakh rupees—at today’s value, it is probably worth more in SriLankan currency!!!!
