India have won the inaugural ICC Women’s U19 T20 World Cup final after easing to a six-wicket victory against England in South Africa.

England were bowled out for 68 inside 18 overs after losing the toss and being put into bat, with Titas Sadhu (2-6) and Parshavi Chopra (2-13) the pick of the Indian attack.

Archana Devi (2-17) also impressed and produced a stunning catch to remove top-scorer Ryana Macdonald-Gay (19), one of only three English players to reach double figures, with all six bowlers used by India claiming at least one wicket during an impressive display.

India lost captain Shafali Verma (15) and Shweta Sehrawat (5) early in their reply to briefly raise hopes of an unlikely England win, although a steady third-wicket stand of 46 between Soumya Tiwari (24 not out) and Gongadi Trisha (24) moved them to the brink of victory.

Trisha was bowled by Alexa Stonehouse (1-8) with just three required for victory, before Tiwari scored the winning run as India chased down their target of 69 with six overs to spare.
