Shafali Verma-led India U-19 team managed to do what their seniors couldn’t by crossing the final hurdle at a global event.
India first bundled out England for 68 in 17.1 overs and then chased down a modest target in 14 overs to lift the coveted trophy.
It was a clinical performance from Team India in the summit clash as England looked no match for them from the very first over when Titus Sadhu was dismissed early.
Brief scores: England 68 in 17.1 overs (Rianna McDonald-Gay 19, Titas Sadhu 2-6, Parshvi Chopra 2-13) lose to India 69/3 in 14 overs (Soumya Tiwary 24 not out, Gongadi Trisha 24; Hannah) Baker 1-13, Grace Scrivens 1-13) by seven wickets
