Meanwhile, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) also took to their Twitter and wrote, “A fantastic performance througout in the #U19CWC 2022 Congratulations.”
Midway through the tournament, a few members of the squad, including Shaik Rasheed and Yash Dhull, tested positive for COVID-19, but whoever stepped in performed an excellent job, and India did not lose a single game in the 2022 U19 World Cup.
However, former batter Yuvraj Singh also hailed bowlers Ravi Kumar and Raj Bajwa for the ‘amazing spells’ during the summit clash.
“Congratulations to the #BoysinBlue & the entire nation for winning the #U19CWC! Moreover, amazing spells by Ravi Kumar and Raj Bawa The future of Indian cricket looks bright Well played boys. Super proud!” tweeted Yuvraj.
In the top encounter, the Yash Dhull-led squad defeated the Three Lions by four wickets. India had won the U19 World Cup four times previously, in 2000, 2008, 2012, and 2018.
