The conversation took place before the fourth ball of the 38th over when India needed 103 runs from 75 balls with only two wickets left. ,Remember, you will lose but you will learn. (Take care. We will lose but we will still learn),” the conversation between Murugan and Naman was captured on the stump mic.

A new chapter was added to the script of Australia's dominance over India in the ICC World Cup final as they lifted the Under-19 title with a 79-run win in Benoni, South Africa on Sunday.
Batting at their discretion, Australia posted 253 for seven, forcing India to chase the highest target in the summit clash of the Youth World Cup.
But Uday Saharan's side faltered in the final stages of the glory and were bowled out for 174 as the relentless Australian bowlers led by the fiery Mahali Beardman (3/15) and crafty off-spinner Rafe McMillan (3/43) denied them a chance. . Any breathing room.
It was Australia's fourth U19 title and first since 2010 and, in a way, they also washed away the pain of losing to India in two title matches in 2012 and 2018.
Many will see this result as a continuation of Australia's victory over India in the Senior World Cup in Ahmedabad last year.
