Under 19 World Cup : West Indies Beat India To Win First Title

The West Indies won the Under-19 World Cup for the first time in their history after beating India by five wickets in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The 2016 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup was a international limited overs cricket tournament held in Bangladesh from 22 January to 14 February 2016. It was the eleventh edition of the Under-19 Cricket World Cup, and the second to be held in Bangladesh, after the 2004 event.

India Under-19 team’s quest for an unprecedented fourth World Cup title went up in smoke as the Rahul Dravid coached colts were outplayed by the West Indies in the final on Sunday. India, whose had not lost a youth ODI in the two years since the last tournament, were put in to bat on a green surface by the West Indies captain, Shimron Hetmyer. Under relentless pressure from sharp, accurate bowling, the home side crawled to a meager 145 all out in just over 45 overs.

It was the first major title for the West Indies at any level since Darren Sammy’s senior team won the ICC World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka in 2012.

So here are the questions which can be asked in the upcoming exams :
1. Who won the ICC under 19 Cricket World Cup ?
2. ICC Under 19 Cricket World Cup tournament was held at which place ?
3. What is the name of winning team captain ?
