4 Times World Champions!

Victorious U-19 Team India
World Champions

A successful person Is the one who has got determination, aspiration, who believes in hard work and discipline. An individual success can well be translated into a team success. The future of Team India, presently the World Champions, is secured with the strong wall- Rahul Sharad Dravid.
Not taking anything away from the U-19 boys, it’s the guidance of Dravid that has seen Team India win the Under -19 World Cup. He was always the captain’s Go-to man. Donned Wicket keeper’s gloves when the captain required, opened the innings, played a sheet anchors role in the middle order, rolled his arms- were some of role that he has often played.
Commitment towards cricket during his playing days was so addictive and irresistible that he carried on the mantle into coaching the Junior team. No reward could have been better than a World Cup Victory by his Under- 19 boys!
4 times World Champion-Under 19 Team India. This was an unbeaten performance as India didn’t lose a single match. Ironically, India played its first match and last match Australia. This tournament has seen India produce some wonderful players. To name a few- Captain Prithvi Shaw, Shubman Gill, Manjot Kalra, Nagarkoti, Ishan Porel & Shivam Mavi . This victory will remain in the memories for a long time to come. Some of them can walk into the senior team anytime.
Prithvi Shaw marshaled his troops very well. He missed on his century by 6 runs in the first match against Australia. Had he stayed on to the wicket, he could have scored a century in the Finals. Shubman Gill scored a brilliant unbeaten century against Pakistan in the semi Finals. A brilliant bowling spell by Ishan Porel made sure that India Won by a whopping margin of 203 runs. Manjot Kalra made the most of it when it mattered. He sealed the victory with an unbeaten 101 runs. Kamlesh Nagarkoti has been sensational in the U-19 Circuit. He crossed almost 150 Kmph in the speed gun in one of the match.
A big congratulation to the Under-19 Team India and Big Salute to Rahul Dravid.
