  1. Team India won over the OZ and annexed the World Cup for the Under 19 and thus won over both the Seniors ODI under Dhoni in 2011 and now became the Junior World Cup Champions on Sunday the 26th August in great style.India won the toss and put OZ into bat first and dismissed 4 of the top order cheaply.But OZ captain led a fighting knock and OZ posted 224 runs for the Indians.Skipper Chand played a very brilliant knock and led the batting assault from the front in a very much aggressive way and India won the coveted cup with six wickets and 2.2 overs to spare.It was a very GREAT win for India who are third time champions having been runner-up once in the 4 WCs so for.Kudos to Team India &we are proud!APRAJITH IS AN ALL ROUNDER LIKE KAPIL AND MOHINDER AND IRFAN PATHAN AND YUVI AND WE ARE ALL PROUD OF APRAJITH!
