India lifted the under-19 World Cup for the second time after a 12-run victory over South Africa in Kuala Lumpur.

The 2000 winners were bowled out for just 159 after being put in by South African skipper Wayne Parnell, with Tanmay Srivastava's 46 the top score.

But Ajitesh Argal took two wickets as South Africa slumped to 22-4 in reply.

A rain interruption left them with a revised target of 116 from 25 overs, but despite 35 by Reeza Hendricks, they could only manage 103-8.

Ravindra Jadeja and Siddarth Kaul also picked up two wickets each, with Kaul having Parnell caught at square leg for 29 in the final over to seal victory.

India's win rounded off a triumphant day which also saw the senior national team beating Australia in the first match of the best-of-three CB Series final in Sydney.

And it also saw India coach Dav Whatmore complete a notable double, having guided Sri Lanka to victory in the 1996 World Cup.

"It was a great effort by the whole team. I would like to particularly thank our coach, who has been great with us and taught us to believe in ourselves.

"We may not have put up a big total but we knew it was not going to be easy for South Africa to chase under lights," India skipper Virat Kohli commented.
