ICC Under 19 Cricket World Cup Story
Another side won the championship in the most recent ICC U19 Men’s CWC when Bangladesh defeated India in the championship match. Bangladesh defeated South Africa and then New Zealand to get to the final, led by 2023 captain Rakib Hasan and Shortfall Islam, who has since been awarded full international honors.
They played an Indian squad that had won each game, with Yashasvi Jaiswal starting the game and never letting up. He led India in scoring in every game on route to 400 runs and the Player of the Tournament award, but his 88 in the championship match was insufficient as the four-time champions were defeated by three wickets. Other standouts included the top wicket-taker, Indian spinner Ravi Bishnoi, who finished with 17 wickets, including four in the championship match, and Jayden Seals, a fast bowler who later went on to star for the West Indies at the Test level.
