Went out to execute plans we discussed says Raj Bawa after winning U-19 World Cup

All-rounder Raj Bawa expressed his happiness and said that winning the U-19 World Cup is a “special” feeling.

India won the U19 World Cup for the fifth time on Saturday, defeating England in the final at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium. In the summit clash, 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.

“Always feels special to win any game, but to do it in the final is a great feeling. Just went out to execute the plans we discussed with the coach and captain,” said Raj Bawa after the game.

Meanwhile, Ravi Kumar, who scalped four wickets in the summit clash, said that his ‘favourite’ wicket in the match was of Jacob Bethell.

“Coaches kept telling me to do the basics and not worry about the results. The plan was to maintain tight line and length. The ball was sticking a bit and wanted to bowl full to get some movement. My favourite wicket today was the first wicket of the game (Bethell),” said Ravi kumar.

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.

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 forces at the crease and put on a second-wicket stand of 49 runs.

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 victory.
