The world has weighed in on India's fifth ICC Men's U19 Cricket World Cup title, after their assertive victory over England in the West Indies.
Claiming the title in the four-wicket win, Yash Dhull's side were dominant in proceedings, just like they were throughout the previous matches at the tournament.
Raj Bawa took 5/31 in another professional effort in the field, with the Indian side stifling yet another opponent with both meticulous planning and unending pressure with the ball.
Shaik Rasheed and Nishant Sindhu made fifties in the successful chase before Dinesh Bana plundered back-to-back sixes to seal the win.
Here's how the world reacted to their victory.

Covid hit their camp during the WC and at one point had only 12 to choose from. Yet the intensity didn't drop amidst adversity. Won every game, that too clinically. Proud of the team. Special congratulations to @VVSLaxman281, Hrishikesh, Sairaj, Manish & other staff 👏🏼🇮🇳 #U19CWC pic.twitter.com/t1tQpRv3pT— Wasim Jaffer (@WasimJaffer14) February 6, 2022

Having won the Under 19 Cricket World Cup in 2000, 2008, 2012 and 2018, India became the first team to win the tournament five times, two better than second-best Australia, who have won the tournament thrice.
Having finished runners-up in the last edition, losing a low-scoring thriller against Bangladesh, India bettered their performance and went all the way, finishing the tournament unbeaten with six wins out of six.
