India became the most successful side in Under 19 Cricket World Cup history when they beat Australia by eight wickets at the Bay Oval in Tauranga on Saturday. Prithvi Shaw's side went unbeaten throughout the competition and subsequently picked up India's fourth title. 

The side contained plenty of standout performers, with their fast bowling and top-order batting both firing to send them to a deserved victory. But the U19 CWC also contained 15 other sides, with 48 matches in total giving plenty of opportunities for others to make their mark.
