Chand takes India over the Moon

India's Under-19 Captain Unmukt Chand led his side to Under-19 World Cup Glory with an unbeaten century as he pulled off the highest successful chase at this venue to beat Defending Champions Australia in the Final.

Chand's innings was the defining performance of the World Cup and he chose the perfect moment to produce it, outshining his worthy counterpart William Bosisto, whose 87 had dragged Australia from 38 for 4 towards a competitive score.

Chand, who was ably supported by Baba Aparajith and Smit Patel, secured India's third Under-19 World Title, after Triumphs in 2000 and 2008.
