He was not given a bowl until Pakistan reached 230/7 in the 50th and final over. Defending just 7 runs in the final over, he took a wicket in the first ball and then conceded 6 runs in the next 4 balls.
- Thus, he was left to save 1 run off the last ball. However, he was struck for 4, which meant that Pakistan won by 2 wickets. This was India’s only defeat in 11 matches played in 2021 ACC Under-19 Asia Cup and 2022 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup,
- In the semi-finals of the tournament, against Bangladesh, he scored a fine spell – 2/22 in 5 overs – to help India win by 103 runs. In the final of the tournament, a rain-hit game against Sri Lanka, they recorded figures of 1/17 in 8 overs at an economy rate of just 2.12. Chasing a modest target of 102 runs, India easily won the title.
- In the quarter final match of 2022 India ICC Under-19 Cricket World CupAgainst Bangladesh, he produced a ‘player of the match’ performance, thanks to an incredibly stingy spell of 3/14 in 7 overs, which helped India restrict Bangladesh to a total of 111 runs. India overhauled a total within 31 overs.
- In the semi-final match, against Australia, he finished 2/37 in 6 overs to help India restrict their opponents to 194 runs, resulting in a 96-run win.
- In the final of the tournament, he took the first 2 wickets of England’s innings, leaving them at 18/2 in the fourth over. By the 25th over, England were 91/7 and it looked like an easy win for India. However, England had managed to make a tremendous recovery to reach 184/7 by the end of the 43rd over and were threatening to reach a total of 220-230, taking India into account of the pressures from the world. challenges. Cup final.
- Ravi, however, had other ideas, as he picked up 2 more wickets in the 44th over and England’s innings was soon reduced to a total of 189 runs. India had chased down the target and if not for the brilliant all-rounder effort of Raj Bawa (5/31 with the ball and 35 with the bat), Ravi (4/34 in 9 overs) would have certainly won. The ‘Player of the Match’ award in the all-important final would have gone.
- With the 10-wicket bag, he was India’s second-highest wicket-taker in the tournament, behind only Vicky Ostwal (12 wickets), and the joint 10th-highest wicket-taker among all 16 teams.
