The Shafali Verma-led India U-19 squad managed to lift the ICC inaugural U-19 World Cup with an emphatic seven-wicket victory over England.
India first bowled out England for 68 in 17.1 overs and chased down the target in 14 overs to lift the trophy.
India’s bowling attack, led by pacer Titas Sadhu and supported by leg-spinner Parshavi Chopra, set up the comprehensive win with figures of 4-0-6-2, 4-0-13-2 respectively.
Chasing a low total, Soumya Tiwari and Gongadi Trisha took India home with seven overs to spare. After the match, Twitter was full of praise for the World Champions.
Here are all the reactions from that victory:

Women’s Cricket in India is on the upswing and the World Cup triumph has taken the stature of women’s cricket several notches higher. I am delighted to announce INR 5 crore for the entire team and support staff as prize money. This is surely a path-breaking year.
