West Indies Under-19 stunned India Under-19 by five wickets in the final of the ICC Youth Cricket World Cup to be crowned world champions for the first time in their history yesterday.

Chasing 146 for victory at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, the Caribbean side were reduced to 77 for five in the 29th over, before they were bailed out by a brilliant unbeaten half-century by Man-of-the-Match Keacy Carty to get home in the last over with a mere three balls to spare.

It is the first time India lost a Youth ODI since their quarterfinal exit of the same tournament in 2014.
