In a cricket-obsessed nation, it is a happy development that other sports, too, are beginning to get their due. "We did not play our number one game in the finals, that we played in the quarterfinal (versus Bangladesh) and semifinal (against Pakistan)".

At the end it was yet another convincing and comprehensive victory, as Prithvi Shaw and his boys romped home against Australia in the final of the U-19 World Cup.

Drawing an example from the title-winning batch of 2012, when India defeated Australia in Australia under the leadership of Unmukt Chand, Dravid pointed out that winning the World Cup alone will not be sufficient for the juniors to catapult themselves overnight into the national reckoning.

Sources additionally said that Dravid has specified that the whole care staff had filled in as a group, and had an equivalent and joined impact in guaranteeing accomplishment at the U-19 World Cup in New Zealand.

While acknowledging the limelight the World Cup triumph has brought on these cricketers needs to be savoured and not shunned in an attempt to being overly protective of budding careers, Dravid said it's imperative that the players internalise the lessons that come with the experience.

In a press release issued soon after the final, the BCCI had announced a Rs 50 lakh reward for Dravid, Rs 20 lakh each to his support staff and Rs 30 lakh per player on the squad. But we made a conscious decision not to pick them up for this World Cup as I felt it will be better for them to play under-23 cricket and senior men's cricket. "What impressed me was the level of maturity they showed in the age of social media", he said. "India is known for its guru-shishya parampara and the guru always gets more". Well, it was under the guidance of Rahul Dravid that the Indian team was able to clinch the title. How to deal with pressure that will come as U-19 champions.

Mumbai: Whether it is Shubhman Gill's resounding semi-final century or Majot Karla's ton in the final, the Indian colts have left a mark in the U-19 World Cup with their swashbuckling performance. We played two Asia Cups but we did not play Pakistan, I am happy that they got to know what an India-Pakistan game is about, at the U-19 level. All credit to my dad he was the only who took me (everywhere). "The real satisfaction for me has been the process that has been followed over the last 14-16 months".
