went up in smoke as the Rahul Dravid-coached colts were outplayed by the West Indies in the final here on Sunday The marauding Caribbeans soaked in the counter-punches and eventually romped home with five wickets in hand to clinch their maiden trophy and then the entire team broke into an impromptu jig Put in to bat by the Windies on a green top amid overcast conditions the script went completely awry for the Indians who were dismissed for 145 in 451 overs with Sarfaraz Khan’s 89-ball 51 being the only noteworthy contribution West Indies batsman Keemo Paul during his knock of 40 no against India in the U19 World Cup final at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka on Sunday AFP In reply the West Indies won in 493 overs courtesy two mature knocks from Man of the Match Keacy Carty (52 not out) and Keemo Paul (40 not out) who steadied the ship after a mid-innings collapse and then guided their team home Chasing the modest target the Caribbeans lost both their openers — Gifron Pope (3) and Tevin Imlach (15) — with just 28 runs on the board Skipper Shimron Hetmyer (23) and Carty then put together a 39-run third-wicket stand to steady the rocking boat However left-arm spinner Mayank Dagar gave India the much-needed breakthrough when he got Hetmyer caught at long on by Armaan Jaffer Next man in was Shamar Springer the West Indies’s most successful batsman of the tournament But the right-hander could not make an impact and struggled for nine deliveries before an attempted slog sweep had him caught by Jaffer for 3 off Dagar again While wickets were tumbling around him Carty kept his cool to plough on even though the scoring rate was painfully slow Proceedings livened up when Carty was joined by Paul The 17-year-old Paul pushed hard for singles and it was his six off Dagar which broke the shackles for West Indies after a lengthy stretch of dot balls The 69-run stand between Carty and Paul made all the difference in the end as the unbeaten Indians finally found their match in the summit clash The Indian bowlers led by Dagar (3/25) were saddled with the tough task of defending a paltry total and they did a decent job for most part of the match but eventually it wasn’t enough Indian fielders were also guilty of spilling a few chances which could have tilted the match in their favour The Ishan Kishan-led Indians were looking to win their first World Cup since 2012 Earlier Indian batsmen faltered when it mattered the most as the three-time champions were bowled out for 145 Sarfaraz was the lone exception as he saved India the embarrassment of being bowled out for a sub-100 total with a fifth fifty plus score in six innings also making him only one to score most half centuries (7) in the history of the tournament The West Indies bowlers did well to exploit the conditions Alzarri Joseph (3/39) ran through top order before Ryan John (3/38) landed crucial blows for his team Chemar Holder kept things tight to maintain pressure on the Indian batsmen conceding only 20 runs in 10 overs with a timely wicket of Mahipal Lomror India aiming for an unprecedented fourth title lost their top three for 27 runs all falling to

tournament where he ended with a solitary fifty in six innings However he was out leg before wicket to a ball that appeared to pitch outside the leg-stump The fall of Armaan Jaffer made it 50 for five and after that began the innings repair exercise by Sarfaraz and Lomror (19 off 43) who added 37 runs for the sixth wicket India badly needed another decent partnership to put up a respectable total but that did not happen as Sarfaraz kept running out of partners until he missed a crossed batted shot to be caught plumb in front leaving his team at 120 for eight His 89-ball effort comprised five

India Blue to the final of the ongoing Duleep Trophy tournament dismissed apprehensions over the pink ball saying it behaves in "exactly the same way" as the red Kookaburra ball used in the traditional format of the game Gambhir who has played both the league matches in the Duleep Trophy which is being played under lights and with the pink ball on Thursday said the batsmen only needed to make minor adjustments depending on the conditions while facing it "We have to be clear it is only the colour of the ball that has changed nothing else has changed It is a Kookaburra ball that behaves exactly the same way as a red ball or a white ball" Gambhir whose team will lock horns with India Red in the final from Saturday was quoted as saying by ESPNCricinfo File picture of Gautam Gambhir AP "People make so much fuss about the pink ball that it swings more or dips more you can’t pick the wrist-spinners and so on I believe the more you think about it the more complicated you make the game" "It is far more visible in the day time as compared to the red ball because it is far more brighter In the last two games that I have played I have seen nothing different The red ball and pink ball behave exactly in the same way" "I am a traditionalist I have always believed it is meant to be played during the day that is my personal observation You can change the 50 over to T20 format but Test cricket should remain the way it has been because you can’t lose the charm" Gambhir said Speaking on his form in the domestic tournament Gambhir who scored 77 90 and 59 in the three innings respectively said now he wanted to continue his form and will try to convert them into big scores "I am very happy because obviously at the start of the season you are very nervous because you want to start off the season really well" "Three half centuries in a row is really pleasing and I hope I can continue this momentum into the season But at the same time I would have loved to convert these half centuries into hundreds I still have two more innings to go" he said ahead of the big final at Greater Noida from Saturday Written by ANURADHA MASCAREHNAS | Pune | Published: November 25 2015
