India Under-19 clinched the Youth ODI series against England taking a 3-0 lead in the 5-match series by virtue of a huge 169-run win at the Hove. India, who elected to bat first, posted a huge total of 327/7. India U19s’ No.3 batsman, Shubman Gill struck a 127-ball 147 to push his side to a huge total. Gill hit 19 fours and 2 sixes in his innings. Though no other player scored a fifty in the Indian innings, the 20s and 30s laid the foundation for building a huge score supported by Shubman’s big innings.
