India Under-19 cricket team outplayed the English side by four wickets and grabbed the record fifth U-19 World Cup title on Saturday. The keeper-batter Dinesh Bana showed the world a replica of MS Dhoni as he hit the winning shot just like Dhoni’s in the 2011 World Cup final at Wankhede.

Raj Bawa took 5 for 31 as England lost wickets early in their innings before 95 from James Rew restored hope in the push for a first trophy since 1998. After such dominance, Twitter went berserk and many former greats started wishing the Indian team.
