The Indian Under-19 team has more World Cup victories to its name than its senior counterpart. Prithvi Shaw, Shubman Gill and Manjot Kalra's efforts have helped India win the U-19 World Cup for the fourth time. It was one cakewalk of a final, where India defeated Australia by an eight-wicket margin. Kalra emerged as the champion of the game by scoring 101 runs off 102 deliveries. Earlier, India restricted Australia to a frugal 216 within 48 overs.

And, as expected, folks on social media are going crazy. From Amitabh Bachchan (who hasn't quit Twitter afterall) to Shah Rukh Khan, everyone's showering praise the team. Coach Rahul Dravid's efforts have finally paid off.
