U19 World Cup 2022: Virat Kohli was involved in a funny banter with U19 star Ravi Kumar ahead of the 2022 U-19 World Cup final vs England. India became the first team with five Under-19 WC titles after they defeated England in the finals.

The Boys in Blue put on a fantastic performance, not losing a single game in the tournament. The team performed admirably in all three departments, and many of these young stars are expected to shine on the international stage as well.

Left arm-pacer Ravi Kumar is one among them who proved his worth in the finals. He picked 10 wickets in six games, including a four-wicket-haul in the summit clash. Ravi can bowl at a reasonable pace, and his ability to swing the ball off the deck adds to his value. Hence, many franchises are expected to go after him in the IPL mega auction in 2022.

The 33-year-old batting maestro addressed the Indian team ahead of the ICC U19 final against England. Ravi had inquired about Kohli’s weakness during the conversation. Kohli responded to the U19 sensation’s question with a hilarious retort.

U-19 World Cup 2022: Meanwhile, NCA head VVS Laxman, who had overlooked the team’s performance in the competition, praised his players for putting on such a stellar performance despite playing less cricket in recent years.

“I think BCCI should be complemented in terms of the number of tournaments each age group player gets to play, but unfortunately over the last two years due to Covid they didn’t play any tournament, which is why this win is very special,” said Laxman.
