Rahul Dravid expresses concern regarding U-19 staff cash reward

India's Under-19 cricketers are lucky in that they play more cricket than anyone else in the world at this level

"The hard work begins for them begins for us too". "We did not play our number one game in the finals, that we played in the quarterfinal (versus Bangladesh) and semifinal (against Pakistan)".

Soon after, Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamana wrote about other NDA constituents including the TDP feeling unhappy with the BJP. Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar assured the TDP members that the Centre was sensitive towards their demands.

Though Pakistan U-19 team suffered a nightmarish defeat against India in the semi-final of U-19 World Cup by 203 runs while chasing 273 runs, the left-arm fast bowler caught the eyes of cricket fraternity. Under the Rahul Dravid regime, their focus was to generate a pool for 30-35 players over a two-year span and play bilateral series to ensure the team had sufficient match practice before the start of the tournament. While the team's head coach Rahul Dravid has been given the credit for the boys' huge success at the just ended World Cup, the former Indian skipper just refused to take the due credit that he deserves. "We do the best for the kids", Dravid said after his boys lifted the trophy.

Australia, Germany degree at 1-1
Kyrgios appeared to be struggling with a right elbow ailment, taking a time-out for treatment while leading 4-3 in the second set. The mercurial Australian opened brilliantly, holding his serve to love much to the delight of the boisterous home crowd.

To many it was evident that Dravid's passion and dedication for the sport was one day going to get him to this moment where he proudly hold a World Cup trophy.

Upon entering the 2018 edition of the U-19 World Cup as favourites, Prithvi Shaw's side played to their potential and vanquished all comers to cruise to the title. They are the ones who stand up in such pressure games, they are the ones who stood up & showed maturity. They seemed to set a total more than 250 but only to collapse to 216. Dravid talked on various topics ranging from team's preparation to their road ahead of the tournament. But winning the maximum appreciation is the amply experienced coach of this young team. Nadeem Khan, Pakistan U-19 team manager had mentioned about Dravid's visit to Pakistan dressing room to boost the morale of the team. There is probably some value in staging medical tests, similar to the one the BCCI conducts at the Under 16 level - that can verify the age of a player based on a bone density examination. It is noteworthy that not only was the Australian side led by a youngster with Indian roots, there were a couple of players who boasted of the Indian origins. All credit to my dad he was the only who took me (everywhere). Planning and developing of U-19 players was in place. I am happy that they got to know what an India-Pakistan game is about, at the Under 19 level.
