For India, the largest takeaways from the Under 19 World Cup have been the performances of Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ravi Bishnoi. While Jaiswal bagged the participant of the event award, Bishnoi was simply the most effective bowler on show. He ended the event as the best wicket-taker – he claimed 17 wickets however then all his exploits took a beating after the unruly scenes in the final conflict in opposition to Bangladesh.
He was among the many 5 (in addition to three from Bangladesh and India’s Akash Singh) to have been charged for misbehaviour throughout and after the U-19 World Cup final on Sunday. ‘Five players have been found guilty of a Level 3 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Support Personnel… [they] were charged with violating Article 2.21 of the code, whilst Bishnoi received a further charge of breaching Article 2.5,’ the ICC stated in a press release.
While his exploits with the ball garnered all of the constructive headlines, this episode after the match left a bitter style.

‘I wonder what happened to my son, because he is one of my calmest children [Ravi has two elder sisters and one brother]. He explained the sequence of events and the circumstances when he lost his cool while trying to save his teammate, who was being attacked by the Bangladeshi players,’ stated Ravi’s father Mangilal Bishnoi to mid-day.com. ‘My wife has not eaten anything since yesterday,’ he went on to add.
“We were easy. We think its part and parcel of the game — you win some and you lose some,” India captain Priyam had stated on the publish-match press convention. “But their reaction was dirty. I think it shouldn’t have happened. But it’s okay.”
Bangladesh captain Akbar Ali too apologised on behalf of his crew.
“What happened, it should not (have) happened,” Akbar stated.
“I don’t know what precisely happened. I didn’t ask what was happening. But, you recognize, in the final, feelings can come out, and generally the boys have been getting pumped, and feelings have been coming by means of. As a teen, it shouldn’t occur. In any place, in any method, we now have to present the respect to the opponent, we should always have respect for the sport.
