Bangladesh win Under-19 cricket World Cup final by 3 wickets

Bangladesh produced a stunning fightback against defending champions India in Potchefstroom to win the Under-19 World Cup for the first time.
Set 178 to win, Bangladesh slumped to 106 for six before captain Akbar Ali got them back on track.
A brief rain break meant a revised target of 170 from 46 overs, with Rakibul Hasan scoring the winning run to secure a three-wicket victory.
India, who have held the title four times, had defeated Pakistan in the semifinal to qualify for the final match, while Bangladesh won against New Zealand.
