The excited Indian team (U-19) celebrates after the World Cup 2012 victory!

The world cup 2012 held in Australia has been a spectacular won by team India. The series of matches have been pure entertainment and magnificent. When team India won the world cup in 2011 at Mumbai, it was a rather unexpected event. The team was supposed to be weak but team India proved itself to the spectators, fans and all. The victory of the under 19 team has proved the upcoming talent of team India indeed! The critics have been proven wrong by the spectacular defeat of Pakistan, New Zealand and Australia. The under 19 team has proved the potential and caliber of the Indian cricketers in the International arena.

Team India celebrates on the fieldThe terrific victory began with a disappointment when the under-19 team India lost to West Indies. However, they bounced back in the next two games and performed exceptionally well. The fantastic century of the player Unmukt Chand made things easier for team India. The splendid victory will be cherished for years to come indeed! The abundance in runs over the recent years in the International cricket has raised the threshold of expectations by batsmen.

Though it seemed to be a bowler field, the batsmen did prove themselves in the tournament. There were 15 centuries scored by a number of batsmen in the 2012 under-19 world cup which is a huge achievement from the past years. In addition to this, the average runs and aggregate was also much better than the previous year’s indeed! The Indian players were exposed by the two tours to Malaysia and Townsville where a quadrangular series was held. The players in this series were exposed to stressful situations and foreign exposures before they faced the final International world cup tournaments. The elaborate camp held at the Bangalore National Cricket Academy tested the skills of the players such as team building, team spirit, building trust etc. The spectacular victory of team India at the Tony Ireland stadium is indeed momentous and historic. The trio of Unmukt Chand, Baba Aparajith and Smith Patel molded the route to successfully gain the title of triumph for the third time after 2000 and 2008. There was tremendous build up of intense pressure during the early loss of Prashant Chopra. However, the battle was saved by the remarkable contribution of Unmukht Chand who was supported well with Baba Aparajith with a display of an assortment of drives on the off-side.

The ICC under-19 World Cup 2012 has been a major entertaining one with a complete package of victories, defeats, pressure build up and amazing cricket indeed!
