5 players who scored a century in a U-19 World Cup final match. 2 Indians on the list

Let's have a look at the stats of those five batsmen, including Kalra and Chand, who achieved this feat in a U-19 World Cup final match

Prithvi Shaw & Co clinched an easy victory against Australia U-19 team and thus, retained the trophy they had won 4 years ago. Under the guidance of former Indian skipper Rahul Dravid, the Indian colts performed outstandingly and won all their matches in the tournament with huge margins. In the tournament finale, the fans and the cricket Pundits expected the skipper Prithvi Shaw and vice-captain Shubman Gill to deliver with their bat but opener Manjot Kalra stole the show while chasing an easy target of 216.

Kalra smashed a 101-ball century — including 3 sixes and 8 fours — at a strike rate of 99.02. Due to his massive inning, the Indian colts managed to chase the target with 67 balls to spare. Kalra remained unbeaten on 101 and grabbed the ‘Man of the Match’ award for his match-winning performance.

It was Kalra’s only century in the entire tournament. He also became the 5th batsman in the world to smash a ton in a U-19 World Cup final match. He is also now the second Indian batsman after Delhi’s Unmukt Chand to do so. Let’s have a look at those five batsmen, including Kalra and Chand, who achieved this feat in a U-19 World Cup final match:
