It was a proud moment for India on Saturday when the Under 19 cricket team won the world cup for a record fourth time. The young team defeated Australia by eight wickets at the final at Tauranga in New Zealand.
India has become the first U-19 team ever to win the coveted title four times. It has previously won the world cup in 2000, 2008 and 2012.
Indians are passionate about cricket and the sport is like a religion in the country. People all over India are already celebrating the mega win and pouring their reaction on social media.
Even our Bollywood stars are not far behind and have lauded the boys in blue for their stupendous performance.
