India vs England: India Conquer The World

HISTORY! India have scripted history here in South Africa, as they became the inaugural champions of the ICC Women's U19 T20 World Cup.

Shafali Verma and her group of bravehearts left England shell-shocked in the final, as they bowled them out for a meek 68, before chasing the total down in 14 overs, losing only three wickets in the process.

The Indians have been dominant right from the very first delivery till the last, as Grace Scrivens' team never really stood a chance. The likes of Titas Sadhu, Parshavi Chopra and Archana Devi starred with the ball, while despite losing the skipper and an in-form Shweta Sehrawat very early in the chase, Soumya Tiwari and Gongadi Trisha did exceptionally well to chase the target down with incredible ease.

This also marks India's first triumph at an ICC event in women's cricket.
