U-19 World Cup: Jay Shah announces reward of 40 lakhs per player

The Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah announced a reward of INR 40 lakh for each player on the U-19 World Cup winning team.

India won the U-19 World Cup for the fifth time, defeating England in the final at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium. Shah also said that every member of the support staff will receive INR 25 lakh.

“I am pleased to announce the reward of 40 lacs per player and 25 lacs per support staff for the U19 #TeamIndia contingent for their exemplary performance in the #U19CWC final. You have made India proud,” tweeted Shah.

In another tweet, Shah said:

“Congratulations #BoysInBlue on winning the @ICC U19 World Cup. This is a Very Very Special @VVSLaxman281 win against all odds. Each of our youngsters has shown the heart and temperament needed to make history in these trying times #INDvENG #U19CWCFinal.”

The Yash Dhull-led side defeated the Three Lions in the summit clash by four wickets. Earlier, India had won the U19 World Cup in 2000, 2008, 2012, and 2018.

Taking to Twitter, BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal said:

“What an amazing performance by India U-19 team @bcci to win the #Under19WorldCup2022. Moreover, the team remained unbeaten throughout the tournament and displayed amazing teamwork and prospects. Well played Rajangad Bawa, Ravi Kumar, Shaik Rasheed, and Nishant Sindhu.”

However, India got off to the worst possible start in their chase for 190 runs as Joshua Boyden dismissed Angkrish Raghuvanshi (0) on the third ball of the innings. Harnoor Singh and Shaik Rasheed then joined together at the crease and put on a second-wicket stand of 49 runs. As soon as India appeared to be gaining the upper hand, England roared back into the game in the 18th over, dismissing Harnoor (21), reducing India to 49/2.

After that, Raj Bawa (35) and Nishant Sindhu (50*) ensured that India did not lose any more wickets in a row. In the end, India won the U19 World Cup for the fifth time with a four-wicket win.
