India win U19 World Cup 2018: 4 factors that showed Rahul Dravid's influence on India's U-19 team
India's U-19 team created history today after winning their 4th U-19 World Cup. It has been a remarkable journey for the team, which was in supreme form the entire World Cup registering victories in every game it played.
The margins of these victories clearly suggest how commanding these young Indian lads were. Team's exemplary performance has won adulation from the Indian cricket fans and the cricket fraternity as well.
Along with these cricketers, one individual who also has been applauded is India's U-19 mentor and head coach Rahul Dravid. A lot of credit has to go to the wall of Indian cricket for nurturing these talented but naive individuals and helping them grow not only as cricketers but also as humans.
Dravid's love for the game and passion for serving the country are unmatched. The BCCI's decision to make him the mentor/coach of the India U-19 has already borne fruit and will continue to do so in future as well when some of these young cricketers play for the senior team. The values inculcated by Dravid would always stay with all the members of the squad throughout their respective careers.
