India has won the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup 2018 held in New Zealand, but it was not just about the victory but also a learning time for all the players who participated in it.

1.) Prithvi Shaw
Indian skipper and a talented young opening batsman Prithvi Shaw will now play for Delhi Daredevils in the upcoming season of Indian Premier League. Shaw, who had a sensational record in all the domestic events and also in the ICC World Cup helped him to snap the deal of 1.2 crores for his first ever league appearance.
