India beat England to win the inaugural Women’s U19 T20 World Cup title
On Sunday, the Indian Under-19 women's cricket team made history.
Under-19 T20 World Cup champions India, led by Shafali Verma, became the first team to win the tournament.
This victory is also significant to the Indian team because it won the World Cup for the first time.
Before that, the Indian women's team had reached the finals of the T20 and 50 World Cups but had failed to win.
The Indian women beat the English women by 7 wickets in the final with 36 balls left.
The England team batted first in the final played at Potchefstroom, and they were all out for 68 runs in 17.1 overs. India achieved the target with three wickets lost in 14 overs.
The Indians advanced to the finals after defeating New Zealand by eight wickets during their semifinal match.
The England batters once again failed to deliver in a crunch match as India bowled them out for 68. Sadhu did the damage early, taking the in-form Liberty Heap for a duck in the first over and an offspinner for another duck.
The Indian bowler Archana Devi also nipped England's heels right away. England's batting lineup had no answer as all the bowlers contributed regular breakthroughs.
