ICC Women’s U-19 World Cup: India beat England to win inaugural U-19 Women’s T20 World Cup

Indian win inaugural Women’s U-19 T20 World Cup (ICC)

India produced a dominant performance to win the first-ever ICC U19 Women’s T20 World Cup against England. India won the toss and elected to put England into bat.

The decision was vindicated by their bowlers’ brilliant new-ball performance. Opening bowlers Titas Sadhu and Archana Devi reduced England to 22/4 after six overs, with Sadhu taking two wickets and going for just six runs. Despite resistance from Ryana MacDonald-Gay (19), England could not see out their full allocation of overs and fell short, leaving India a target of 69 to win.

India faced some early challenges in their run-chase, losing Shafali Verma (15) and Shweta Sehrawat (5) early in the innings. However, a steady third-wicket stand of 46 between Soumya Tiwari (24 not out) and Gongadi Trisha (24) moved India to the brink of victory.

Trisha was bowled by Alexa Stonehouse (1-8), but Tiwari scored the winning run as India chased down their target with six overs to spare, sealing their triumph with seven wickets in hand.

The win was a testament to India’s dominant performance throughout the tournament and the skill and determination of their players. The bowlers set the tone in the final, with a ruthless display that left England struggling to stay in the game. The batsmen then took over, calmly chasing down the target to secure the win and lift the trophy.
