‘Couldn’t be Really Happier and Proud for This Bunch of Boys’ : Rahul Dravid on U19 World Cup Team


Everyone in the country are really proud of the young Indian cricket team who went to New Zealand and won the cricket world cup for the country. But, the one man who is going to be much more happier than any other is the Indian legendary batsmen, Rahul Dravid. He is the one who took the team to great heights and made efforts to reach the place where the entire team is now in.

“It’s a memory they’ll cherish for a long time and hopefully it’s not a memory that defines them and they will have a lot more bigger and better memories as they go on ahead in their careers,” coach Dravid said after India’s fourth ICC U-19 World Cup title. Rahul Dravid spoke about the effort that the entire batch put on for the last 14 month and made them achieve the goal, which bore fruit.

“I am really proud of the boys, proud of the effort that they have put in and proud of the support staff as well. I think the effort we have put in over the last 14 months have been sensational.

They really deserved this, couldn’t be really happier and proud for this bunch of boys,” the legendary batsman said. He was always aware that the since this was an U-19 team, the spotlight will always be on him but as usual he was magnanimous in praising the entire support staff comprising of fielding coach Abhay Sharma, bowling coach Paras Mhambrey to name a few.

“Coaching this team, I tend to get a lot of attention, but it is really about the quality of support staff that we have had, there have been seven or eight of us, who have been together for the last 14 months. The effort they put in was incredible. I am proud to be a part of their (support staff) team and see it as that. We try and do what’s best for the kids and hopefully they can put in the performances on the field and they have certainly done that in this tournament,” he said.
