Fans Hailed Raj Bawa For His All-Around Performance Against England In U-19 WC final

India’s young and talented all-rounder Raj Bawa stole the show with his sensational all-around performance in the just concluded 2022 U-19 Cricket World Cup final vs England in Antigua. The Indian cricket team defeated England by 4 wickets in the final clash in Antigua on Sunday and won the 2022 ICC U19 World Cup.

Riding on the terrific performance from Chandigarh boy Raj Angad Bawa, India was able to defeat England by 4 wickets in the summit clash. Raj Bawa, who is a right-arm fast-bowler, first shone with the ball with a sensational fiver (5/31) to help India bundle England out for 189.

During the game, Raj Bawa also created a big record as he became the first Indian male player in history to take five wickets in the final of an ICC event. Bawa surpassed Piyush Chawla, Ravi Bishnoi, and Sandeep Sharma who had previously taken a four-wicket haul in the summit clash of the U19 World Cup final in the past.

Not just this, Bawa’s terrific spell is only the second time in the history of a U19 World Cup that a bowler has taken a five-wicket haul. He broke the record of Pakistan Anwar Ali, who had picked a fifer in the 2006 final against India and conceded just 35 runs.
