Coach On The Victory
Rahul Dravid who coached the team also expressed his happiness with the media. He also said “Really proud of the boys and the effort they put in.

India hammer Pakistan by 203 runs in #U19WorldCup cricket! What an exciting team we have. Final is against a team we have already beaten in the opening match of the tournament, Australia. But that was also the case in the Champions Trophy last year&we lost then: so no complacency
