Cricketer Manjot Kalra's family celebrates after India wins U19 World Cup

India Under-19 Cricket team defeated Australia on Saturday to pick up their fourth ICC U-19 Cricket World Cup. The effort we have put in over the last 14 months has been sensational.

The other members of the support staff including fielding coach Abhya Sharma and bowling coach Paras Mhambrey will be richer by Rs 20 lakh. "The effort they put in was incredible", he said. I'm proud of the support staff as well. To provide better training to our son, we shifted to Mohali.

"Can't express what I'm feeling right now, really proud". They supported us from the first ball. "Full credit to India".

He was all praise for centurion Manjot Kalra.

Earlier, India's leading wicket-taker in the event, Anukul Roy (2/32), had sent back Uppal in similar fashion as offered a simple catch back to the bowler while attempting to play against the spin. On the day, Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti stepped up too to announce their arrival on the world stage. "It's been wonderful playing matches here".

The track at the Bay Oval had grass covering on it and with the wind blowing across the ground, the Indian bowlers made it hard for Australian batsmen to score runs freely.

"Don't know what to say at the moment".

Manjot Karla had a quiet tournament so far. But on the contrary, the match ended as a completely one-sided affair as India handed a massive 203-run drubbing to their rival side.

In fact, it was Australia who had all the good fortune.

Kalra, who became the second century scorer for India in the tournament was named the man of the match while his team-mate Gill bagging the man of the series award. "Hope to do well in IPL also".

Opener Manoj Kalra then spearheaded the Indian run chase with an unbeaten century as the Boys in Blue romped to victory with 67 balls to spare.

He said: "Great feeling". The conditions were good.

"I enjoyed it a lot". We had few plans and we stuck to it. "Dravid himself always placed impetus on discipline and the team has gained from his experience which has been at the highest level".

"It's just incredible. I was thinking I wouldn't bat and I proved myself right". I thought it'd be a tough match.

"The [Bay Oval] pitch was nice, the crowd is incredible here, the facilities have been fantastic and a lovely place to stay as well so hopefully the weather stays good".

Sensing a need to attack, Merlo chose to go for his shots but an attempted reverse slog-sweep found more height than distance, but his was a fine effort, and a significant Aussie support applauded him warmly as he walked back in.

"I think after landing at Mumbai on February 5 he may go to Bangalore for the upcoming Vijay Hazare trophy", he said.
