Under-19 World Cup: Bihar’s boy Anukul shines, India wins under 19 WC


On the strength of the batting of Shubham Gill (90 not out) and Bihar’s Lal Samastipur-Anukul Roy (4/20), India, on the strength of the wretched bowling attack, continued their winning campaign in the Under-19 Cricket World Cup, stopping Zimbabwe by 10 wickets on Friday. Zimbabwe’s team went to bat after winning the toss in the match played at the Oval on field ground and Zimbabwe’s team could not stay ahead of Indian bowlers and could lose only 154 runs by losing all wickets.

The target from Zimbabwe was achieved in 21.4 overs without losing any wicket on the basis of the century partnership of India batsmen Harvic Desai (56) and Gill’s 155 runs. Milton Shumba (36) and Liam Roche (31) scored the highest score for Zimbabwe. Apart from this, none of the batsmen could do exceptionally well.

Apart from Roy, who played Jharkhand, Abhishek Sharma and Ashdeep Singh took two wickets each. Anukul won the man of the match award by taking five wickets in the last match. Parag and Shivam Mavi had one success. Gill was chosen Player of the Match. Let us know that India has already entered the quarter-finals.
