India ICC U19 Women’s T20 World Cup

India produced a dominant performance against England to triumph in the first-ever ICC U19 Women’s T20 World Cup.

A brilliant new-ball performance was followed by a calm run-chase as India cruised to victory over England in the final, sealing their triumph with seven wickets in hand and six overs to spare.

Chasing a target of 69, India reached the target in 14 overs losing only three wickets. 

Earlier, India's bowling attack, led by pace sensation Titas Sadhu and leg-spinner Parshavi Chopra, dished out a superlative performance to bundle out England for 68. While Sadhu returned with impressive figures of 4-0-6-2, Chopra too gave ample display of her prowess as she snapped two for 13. Archana Devi also scalped 2 for 17, while Mannat Kashyap (1/13), Shafali Verma (1/16) and Sonam Yadav (1/3) accounted for one wicket each. (Scorecard)
