Here is India vs Australia Under 19 World Cup final:
13:28 pm: India creates history, win world cup for the fourth time.
12:50 pm: Pope to Manjot Kalra, SIX, full-toss on the leg stump, Kalra loads up and clouts it into the grass banks beyond the square-leg boundary
12:40 pm: One good partnership of 30-35 and this game is done. This is doing away from Australia quickly. And people comparing this with 2003 WC. India only lost to Australia in that series. In this one the opposite.
12:37 pm: Similar target..similar start.. similar fumbles..memories of recent Women’s World Cup final are knocking on my memory door!!
12:35 pm: Kalra needs to stay there till the end. India’s middle order has been a bit brittle in this tournament. India need 73 runs more from 150 balls.
12:33 pm: This U19WC seems to be very similar to the 2003 WC with India and Australia swapping places.
12:26 pm: Uppal to Shubman Gill, OUT, Uppal draws Gill out of the crease and bowls him. Good length, starts outside off, and breaks through the weak defences of Gill, who had dared to step out. Uppal hits the top of off and gives Australia hope. Big blow for India. Their middle order will be tested after all.
12:15 pm: When you look at Shubham Gill’s technique, how he goes back and then lays his weight on the ball, it is the mark of a future great. Leaves the ball well too just after hitting a boundary. He can be really good in overseas conditions for India in future.
12:04 pm: Evans to Manjot Kalra, 1 run, Kalra brings up his second fifty of the tournament with a smooth drive through the covers. He leans into a full one outside off and times it beautifully. He thumps his chest and celebrates. He has put India on course for their fourth U-19 World Cup title.
11:42 am: Manjot Kalra seems to be like Gautam Gambhir… playing beautifully in big world cup final… remember 2007 and 2011… Unsung hero of both the matches.
11:36 am: What an over for India, Manjot Kalra joins in the party by hitting back to back boundaries off Edwards deliveries.
11:27 am: Where should IND be at after 20 overs based on DL total wise?” India need to be 49 for no loss after 20 overs. Par score subject to change if we lose overs, though.
11:16 am: Just noticed that Shaw seems to have a backfoot trigger movement towards the leg side. Interesting but not concern worthy in this era of Smith and Amla techniques, as long as Shaw keeps scoring. Would be very interesting to know what effect it has on his batting though.
11:13 am: Will the rain help the Aussie quicks?? That’s a tricky one. One the one hand, the moisture could give them skiddy pace. But at the same time, gripping the ball and maintaining control will be harder.
11:10 am: Evans to Shaw, FOUR.
11:07 am: Match resumes. India begin chase
10:46 am: Right, so they decide to go off. And that seems the right call. It’s pretty heavy at the moment. No point leaving the pitch exposed in such a situation, however brief this interruption may be. The main strip is being covered, umbrellas flash out at the grass banks.
10:38 am: Evans to Manjot Kalra, SIX.
10:36: Third man and fine leg come up while mid-on drops back for the free-hit. Also a sweeper in place.
10:33 am:Evans to Shaw, (no ball) 1 run, oops, Evan’s knocked over the stumps before releasing the ball. And he gets slapped with a free-hit. Running close to the stumps has its perils in the modern-day limited-overs game. Coming to the delivery itself, it was short and pulled with good control to deep fine leg.
10:30 am: India have started rather slow but the score is still achievable with Shaw, Kalra and Gill in the team.
10:25 am: All Aussies can hope for is to knock over India’s 4 batsmen quickly. Six bowlers plus a keeper means India are heavily reliant on their top 4, and their dismissals will be Australia’s only chance here
10:23 am: Prithvi Shaw and Manjot Kalra begin the chase, need 217 to win.
9:49 am: Shivam Mavi to Ryan Hadley caught out by Harvik Desai. There at the end Australia has made 216 runs and India now has to gear up for putting up a score of 217 to win the finals. Let’s see what’s in store.
9:43 am: Now that wicket went down very quickly. K Nagarkoti to Baxter J Holt, Baxter J Holt Run Out though he gave a sincere try to keep himself up but in vain.
9:40 K Nagarkoti to Zak Evans, out Bowled!! Australia crumbling at the end overs. Ryan Hadley, right handed bat, comes to the crease.
9:37 am: That’s an OUT!! Anukul Roy to Merlo, out Caught by Shiva Singh!! This was a crucial wicket for the Men in Blue. Merlo leaves the crease after making 76(102) runs. Zak Evan sreplaces him on the crease.
9:20 am: OUT!! Sutherland leaves the crease minutes after his entry. Shiva Singh to Will Sutherland, out Caught by Harvik Desai!! Baxter J Holt, right-handed batsman now enters the crease.
9:10 am: Will Sutherland, right handed bat, comes to the crease and just after his entry he punches a FOUR! What a start.
8:55 am: Shiva Singh to Nathan McSweeney, out Caught and Bowled!! Oh dear, bit of an ugly send-off there from the keeper.
8:34 am: FIFTY!! Jonathan Merlo scores his fifty in the final. surely a crucial number by the right-hander and also the team. This will be an innings the youngster will remember all his life.
8:35 am: Four!! Anukul Roy to Nathan McSweeney, FOUR, good placement. McSweeney finds the gap and punches a boundary The short third man fielder gave a chase but to was of no use.
8:30 am: Meanwhile, Suresh Raina take on Twitter to wish the Blue brigade for their match against Aussies; here’s what he said
