India's U19 cricket team coach Rahul Dravid speaks during a news conference
07 February, 2018, 01:59
"We do the best for the kids", Dravid said after his boys lifted the trophy.
In a public statement reported by BCCI's Supreme Court-named Committee of Administrators on February 3, the Board had allocated Rs 50 lakh to Dravid, while proclaiming that whatever is left of the care staff - Bowling mentor Paras Mhambrey, Fielding mentor Abhay Sharma, Physiotherapist Yogesh Parmar, Trainer Anand Date, Masseur Mangesh Gaikwad and Video examiner Devraj Raut - would each get Rs 20 lakh. "All credit goes to our brilliant support system", said Shaw, who has emulated the likes of Mohammed Kaif, Virat Kohli and Unmukt Chand to captain India U-19 team to top of the world for the record fourth time.
I'm really happy that these 15 boys got to wear a World Cup medal and hold the title, they thoroughly deserve it and put in a lot of hardwork. We had a set plan for the World Cup and we executed it well.
Dravid's tale with the World Cup has been long and gruelling. "Then coming to Mumbai and seeing excitement, noise and so many people around them, that is another kind of experience". "The Wall" as he is popularly called, credited the backroom and National Cricket Academy staff, who spent considerable amount of time with the colts. On Monday, after arriving from New Zealand, the coach once again reiterated the need to manage the players in order to make their transition to the senior level easy. They are the ones who made sacrifices.
Rahul Dravid, the coach of the World Cup winning Under-19 Indian cricket team, continues to win the hearts of fans with his honest sense of selflessness. I would prefer also names yet everybody in the care staff has invested an extraordinary exertion. Even if they have a couple of tough years and fail, they'll be better off playing there.
Shaw, who was seen overjoyed at the World Cup victory on Saturday, said: "It is a proud and different feeling to play for India".
Dravid further beautifully described the upcoming challenges, "Talent and ability is there, it's about managing themselves, how to deal with pressure and the expectations that will come as U-19 champions". We didn't get to play Pakistan in the Asia cup and this was a great opportunity.
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.
"The hard work begins for them begins for us too". Planning and developing of U-19 players was in place. What impressed me was the level of maturity that they have and the confidence that these players have.
