BCCI announces Prize money for victorious India U-19 team

They defeated Australia by eight wickets at bay oval at Mount Maunganui in New Zealand, who were also eyeing the title for the fourth time. Former India cricketer Diana Edulji praised the team for their unbeaten run to the title saying the victory is a testament to the environment provided by the BCCI for the youngsters to flourish. In a group stage encounter, India thrashed the Aussies by 100 runs earlier in the competition.

The up and coming last of the ICC U-19 World Cup carries an extremely intriguing rivalry into the pot. Uppal and Merlo's applaudable 4th-wicket run was shredded in 29th over as the legspinner Anukul Roy dismissed Param for 34. Australia head coach Ryan Harris was quoted as saying by a cricket-specific website. "I can only say team effort".

Australia started the first innings with bat and finished off with 216 runs on board.

Father who lunged at Nassar in court: 'I lost control'
According to TIME, Nassar admits "penetrating three girls with his hands when he was supposed to be treating them for injuries". Assistant Attorney General Angela Povilaitis told families in the courtroom to " use your words ", not physical violence.

In reply, Indian opener Manjot Kalra hit a brilliant century, and along with Harvik Desai, they cruised home. Australia U-19 batsmen were never allowed to settle into the game as India's impressive bowling unit kept picking wickets at regular intervals. After that one bad day in office, the Australians have bounced back strongly and won four games in a row to make it to the final. Captain Sangha scored (88) run against poor Papua New Guinea which helps his team to win by 311 runs and create a world record in ICC U19 World Cup 2018.

It was a rain-truncated final in Malaysia and India kept their nerves in a low-scoring thriller to win their first ICC U-19 World Cup after Kaif and boys won it in 2000. Ishan Porel, Shiva Singh and Anukul Roy picked up two wickets each for India.

However, India, inspired by their captain Prithvi Shaw and the consistent Shubman Gill, have been superb when batting first with totals of 328, 265 and 272 in their route to the final. Skipper Sangha will hope his boys would put their foot on peddle when facing India and cross the final hurdle.

Mike Fisher Ending Retirement, Returning to Nashville Predators
And make no mistake, there is no doubt that Fisher will be in shape at some point before the February 26 deadline. Nashville has added centres Kyle Turris and Nick Bonino to their roster since Fisher last played.

India's biggest advantage is their form and momentum - the "toughest" win was against Australia. But one area they have yet to be tested is in their middle order batting thanks to the dynamic form of the top order.

India and Australia would be chasing glory for the fourth time in the showpiece event after both of these sides have laid hands on the glittering trophy on three occasions in the past.

Hawaii fires warning officer who sent missile alert
The alert was sent to cellphones, TV and radio stations in Hawaii, leading people to fear the state was under nuclear attack. The rest of the team said they knew it was a drill so it's safe to say it was a brown-pants-moment for pretty much everyone.
