India win ICC U-19 World Cup

Under-19 Cricket World Cup winning team coach Rahul Dravid and captain Prithvi Shaw during a press meet after their arrival in Mumbai

"We were confident that it would be a close match but as the match progressed and our batting went down for 59 it made one wonder if there was a magic spell on the team", Nadeem said. All of them will receive Rs 20 lakh each.

Dravid maintained that the entire support staff worked as a team and the Under 19 World Cup victory was a result of the hard work put in by the coaches as well as the players.

India today defeated Australia by 8 wickets to clinch the Under-19 Cricket World Cup.

Mumbai (boys) U-16 off-spinner Yash Jathar revealed that around 35 U-16 players were at the airport: "We are very proud of them and they have motivated us".

The decision ruled in the Seoul High Court raises many questions and concerns regarding political and corporation power. The court had also said that this isn't an example of a typical "cozy relationship between politics and business".

It is learned that Dravid's message was to the young champions to restrain themselves from any act of ugliness while they went about their celebrations following beating Australia in the final on Sunday. The guys who adapt quicker are the ones who end up succeeding in first-class cricket,"stated the former India skipper".

Tending to a question and answer session on coming back from New Zealand, after the win on Saturday, Dravid had said he attributed the achievement of the group to the whole care staff which had buckled down in the background. In the next triangular series against England and Sri Lanka's U-19 teams, the colts not only remained undefeated throughout the tournament, they also won the trophy. I would prefer also names yet everybody in the care staff has invested an extraordinary exertion. Rahul Dravid, arguably one of India's finest batsman, was one such unlucky player who couldn't lift a World Cup in his illustrious career. "Rahul sir saw me checking the auction news on phone and told me just one thing, 'This auction will be held next year too, but a U-19 World Cup final will come in your life just once, '" pacer Shivam Mavi said. "They have been fantastic athletes and even better ambassadors". "At least if they become good first class cricketers, from then on it becomes a stepping stone to play for India".

Noticing the nervousness in the dressing room before the start of the game, Dravid raised the spirits by highlighting that how this day will never be repeated in their careers. In the U-19 level you have to intervene a little more because they expect that from you.

At the Under-19 level, while talent has already become obvious, players haven't yet fully developed the mental side of the game. They are the ones who stand up in such pressure games, they are the ones who stood up & showed maturity.
