Parliament today congratulated the Under-19 Indian cricket team for winning the World Cup in Australia.

“The Indian Cricket Team achieved this incredible feat during the final of the ICC Under-19 World Cup beating Australia in Townsville, Australia,” Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar said amid thumping of desks by members.

She said this exceptional accomplishment was a matter of national pride and will inspire upcoming sportspersons across the country.

In the Rajya Sabha, Chairman Hamid Ansari congratulated the Indian team for winning the U-19 World Cup.

The win is all the more significant as this is for the third time that U-19 team have won the limited over world championship, he said.

Mohammed Kaif and Virat Kohli led their respective teams to victory in 2000 and 2008 editions respectively.

“This victory has added another feather in the crown of Indian cricket,” Hamid Ansari said, noting that India now holds both the senior and junior world titles.
