U19s Cricket World Cup Watch: Part 7

U19s Cricket World Cup Watch: Part 7

England suffered a four-wicket loss in the final of the Under 19s Cricket World Cup as India were crowned 2022 champions in Antigua.

Both Shaik Rasheed and Nishant Sindhu passed half centuries as India chased down England’s target of 190 in 47.4 overs.

Lancashire’s Joshua Boyden (2-24) and Tom Aspinwall (2-42) both picked up two wickets apiece as England made life tough for their opponents during the Indian run-chase.

Boyden got England off to a perfect start as he removed opener Angkrish Raghuvanshi with the second ball of the innings without scoring - caught behind by Alex Horton. But contributions from Raj Bawa (35) and Harnoor Singh (21) saw India home with four wickets to spare.

Earlier in the day, England won the toss and elected to bat. Somerset’s James Rew hit an excellent 95 off 116 balls but saw his side lose wickets regularly throughout their innings.

England slipped to 61-6 after Kumar (4-34) and Bawa (5-31) picked up regular wickets inside the opening 20 overs.

Northamptonshire’s James Sales (34*) joined Rew and the pair added an eight wicket partnership worth 93 taking the score up to 184-7. Until Kumar and Bawa returned to finish the innings removing Rew, Aspinwall and Boyden as England were bowled out for 189.

Lancashire’s George Bell finished the tournament with 131 runs at an average of 43.66 - passing half centuries on two occasions. Boyden picked up 15 wickets at an average of 9.86 while Aspinwall finished with seven wickets at 23.42.
