India is the U19 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup World Champions 2023 in the inaugural edition of the cricket tournament.

It is a historic day in cricket and a very proud moment for all Indians to see another World Cup Trophy in the Indian cricket Cabinet.

This u19 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup win in the inaugural tournament held in South Africa will help Indian women’s Cricket in a big way and will help give the impetus required to take Indian cricket to a whole new level. India girls U19 Team not only won the finals convincingly but also showcased the rich talent it is unearthing at the grassroots level in the women’s cricket game.

The WPL will take a whole new paradigm shift if India can also win the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup along with the u19 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup. Interest in the women’s cricket game would go two folds with a wider cricket audience.

India is the new u19 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Champion: India Beat England to Win the Inaugural T20 Title    

Shafali Verma the Indian cricket captain won the toss and in a big final of the u19 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup chose to field. It did not come as a surprise as Indian batting in this edition has been a revelation as the young guns have raised quite a few eyebrows with their maturity with the bat and it is their stronger suit. So, any total put up by the England cricket team, Indian girls seem to be confident to chase it down.

The tension was in the air and nerves were not settled for the players and fans alike.

The first blood went the Indian way with Bengal pacer, the only seam bowler in the team, Titas Sadhu surprised the in-form England opener Liberty Heap with a short-length ball for a comfortable caught and bowled.

The Indian team’s nerves were settled, unlike the English girls who were rattled by 2 more quick wickets by Archana Devi who had a dream game in the Finals. She was one of the standout players in the finals. She took the most important wicket of the England Skipper, which was the biggest turning point of the game and broke the backbone of the England batting line-up. But after what England did in the semi-finals against Australia, the Indian girls did not take their foot off the paddle and maintained the pressure throughout the innings with some excellent ground fielding led by Archana and Trisha.

The spinners were all over the England Batters and did not allow them to score easily. The singles dried up and the boundary runs too.

Some runs were leaked when Verma came on to bowl for her 2 overs, but she also joined the party with a wicket when Richa Gosh who grasped a catch of Sadhu earlier did not make an error in stumping Baker.

That was all India had to get to become the World Champions. But this was a final

India had to ensure that Indian girls did not have a bad day with the bat to make this chase a smooth and easy one.

Both the openers got a life in the first over of Baker. Nerves were clearly on the Indian batters.

The two senior international cricketers on the side, Shafali Verma and Richa Gosh seem to have lost their mojo in this u19 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup. Gosh had a torrid time behind the stumps this World Cup.

Shafali Verma went early after a quickfire inning of 15 which summed up the average outing of the Indian captain with the bat. Even with her bad form, she will still end up being the third-highest run scorer in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023.

Shafali should realise that she can’t slog every ball. She needs to have a proper Batters mindset. This has been her Achilles heel even in the senior women’s cricket team.  She fails more often than at acceptable levels.

The fall of the wicket of India’s Best batter, Shweta Sherawat would have put the cats amongst the pigeons in the Indian camp. She ended up with an avg of 99 in this ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 tournament.

India’s track and field hero Neeraj Chopra’s presence in the stadium would have been a great kicker for the young Indian girls in the finals of the World Cup.

The pressure of the finals was on the batters and the early wickets did make the match interesting.

Soumya Tiwari and Gongadi Trisha showed some good game awareness and went for singles and doubles on the occasion hit above the 30-yard circle.

Trisha got carried away in the end and after playing some great strokes gave away her wicket to England’s Stonehouse when India needed only 3.

Archana’s one-handed catch and some excellent fielding when India was bowling were some highlights to remember in the finals of this ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in South Africa.
