The Boys in Blue --> U-19 Champs!!!

This summer has been a great one for cricket lovers and the ongoing CB series is coming to a fitting end with India leading the finale 1-0 thanks to Sachin and the rest of d guyz. But, not many of us are aware of the ongoing U-19 World cup being held in Malaysia. India were the runner up last edition having beaten by Pakistan. But this time, it has been a very shrewd young Indian team who have come with a single motto!! ie To Win the World Cup. Finally, they have also succeeded in doing so, when they defeated the Proteas by 12runs in the rain affected finals which was held today at Kinrara oval in Malaysia.
They beat the spirited Proteans in the close encounter today and thanks to the rain God, the Boyz in Blue made it a dream double to go with the win by the MIB earlier this evening. The Indians were undoubtedly the best team in the tournament having been undefeated in all the games. Tanmay Shrivastava lead the Indian batting in this tournament and the bowling department was lead by Sangwan who seems a good prospect for the Indian team.
Virat Kohli had been an aggressive captain right throughout the series and also seems to be a good player for the Indian team in the future.
The Proteas on the other hand are taking home a lot of positives. And, being a fan of Proteas as well, I can see a great replacement for Jonty Rhodes in Sybrand Engelbrecht. Man!! He rocks!!!



But, with a fitting end to the cricket India, ending the Super Sunday in style!! Chak De India!!!

An emphatic victory i should say ..sadly for the s.a's it was a twist in the tale again .. Mr Indran has always haunted the Proteas...

But this should not take the credit away from our janta..

They deserved this victory. They went to the finals last time itself but sadly lost to Pakistan.
