U-19 team captain Prithvi Shaw and the mentorship of team coach Rahul Dravid led to the sensational win.

The desperate Dravid boys captured the whole field. They outwitted their Australian counterparts and lifted the trophy. India has built a record by winning fourth time in the history of the event. It’s been a tremendous achievement with a great teamwork.
This triumph on the podium of cricket made every Indian extremely proud of. The brilliance of young cricketers and India was a turning point in the dramatic end. It’s not the last memory; and there are more lot of things, moments, and records to be expected in upcoming days.
