India Women Under 19 cricket team created history by defeating England Under 19 Women by wickets on Sunday (January 29) to win the first-ever ICC U19 T20 World Cup 2023.

The Girls-in-Blue bowlers Titas Sadhu, Archana Devi, and Parshavi Chopra grabbed two wickets each to bundle out England just for 68 runs in the final.

Chasing 69, there was a bit of panic at the start as India lost their captain Shafali Verma in the third over which left the side 16/1.

India finished their powerplay on 30/2. Notably, Shweta is the leading run-scorer of the tournament, and her wicket gave the England team a lot of hope.

Soumya Tiwari and Gongadi Trisha kept their cool completing the chase and guiding the Indian women team to glory.

Soon as Soumya Tiwari saw the ball sneak past the fielder, she knew that was the moment. Took her helmet off and roared like a hungry Lion.

Reigning Olympic champion Neeraj Chopra is in the stadium and he looks absolutely cock-a-hoop. He is seen cheering the Indian girls and is all smiles. India have pretty much won the game in the first half.

Having bowled England out for 68, all they needed to do with the bat was play some sensible cricket and keep their calm. They have been absolutely spot-on on both counts.

Though Shafali and Shweta got out in quick succession inside the powerplay, Soumya and Trisha stitched 46-run stand for the third wicket to kill the game quite convincingly. 

Fabulous (the feeling). This is the feeling we have been waiting for very long. This is the first time we won the cup and it has come with the U 19 kids. Just shows the kind of depth we have and what is there for us in the future. The most special thing is the belief.

I knew they had a bad game against Australia, but the way they have gathered and played there after, we kept it very simple and we thought we would just play proper and simple cricket and we would achieve this. From the National anthem and till the time we won we had goosebumps. I personally realize and understand how special this is for us. To live it from the young girls it’s commendable. We have been waiting very long for a cup. We have a good future back in India. God has been kind and I’m keeping it simple.”  – India Head Coach | Nooshin Al Khadeer
