On this day, back in 2008, Virat Kohli gave the first glimpse of being a leader by lifting the coveted ICC Under-19 World Cup trophy. It took 8 years since India last lifted this magnificent trophy back in 2000. The final match was played between India U19 and South Africa U19 at Kuala Lumpur. Batting first, India were bowled out for 159 in 45.4 overs. Later, due to rain, the match was reduced to 25 overs per side, which brought the target down to 116 for South Africa in the given overs. However, the South Africans failed to chase as they could score only 103-8 after the completion of 25 overs. Medium-pacer Ajitesh Argal was India’s go-to man in that encounter as he bowled a brilliant spell of 5 overs with 2 maidens, 7 runs and 2 wickets, which made him earn Man of the Match award.
