Rahul Dravid Stands With Support Staff, Seeks Equal Reward For All

Rahul Dravid-coached India ruthless in quest for 4th title

Prithvi Shaw and Rahul Dravid pose with the U-19 World CupWhat's the story?

After winning the toss, Australia elected to bat first at Bay Oval.

He continued: "Compared to this, the quality of cricket that these boys play, the quantity of cricket they play is incomparable".

After his playing days, Dravid had a short stint as a television commentator and gave corporate speeches, but nothing gave him greater satisfaction than coaching.

Kalra's superb knock came off 102 balls, with eight fours and three sixes. He released some of the players to compete with the big boys in the Ranji Trophy instead of sending them to U-19 Asia Cup.

The Indian batting legend is widely being considered one of the prime reasons for the success of the India juniors, and the BCCI's Committee of Administrators (CoA) had announced on 3 February a cash reward of Rs 50 lakh for Dravid, Rs 20 lakh each for the support staff members and Rs 30 lakh for each player, creating a odd situation, with the actual performers on the field getting far lesser than their mentor.

Dravid was taking the U-19 team for the ICC World Cup and Pakistan were travelling to play limited overs cricket when Hafeez met him. All the other members of the support staff will get Rs 20 lakh each by the board. Even if they have a couple of tough years and fail, they'll be better off playing there. "This was a professional performance from the boys and Dravid is the one responsible for it", Unmukt said during a telephonic conversation.

The prize money for the players was ₹30 lakh each, ₹20 lakh for the support staff and ₹50 lakh for Dravid.

"I think, just the whole preparation and planning that has gone into, I won't say necessarily this World Cup, but over the last 14-16 months is a good process that we put in place and like everything else you have to keep refining it, getting better at it and keep improving on that process", said Dravid.

"We were confident that it would be a close match but as the match progressed and our batting went down for 59 it made one wonder if there was a magic spell on the team", Nadeem said.

"It was a very nice gesture only confirming Dravid's stature in our eyes", Nadeem Khan had said about Dravid visiting the Pakistan dressing room to boost the morale of the team after the crushing loss.

"We did not play our number one game in the final, that we played in the quarter-final (versus Bangladesh) and semi-final (against Pakistan)".

"The way they have (Indian team) played and executed in pressure, these kinds of things give you happiness", he added.

In the first media interaction at home after the win, Dravid added, "We had some loose curfews, sometimes they followed it".
