Indian U-19 team is in final after defeating Pakistan U-19 with a huge margin of 203 runs. The green shirts were bowled out on 69 runs.

Senior Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma lauded the India junior team for their performance in the on-going World Cup U-19. He also wished them all the best for the final against the Australia U19.

Rohit also praised Rahul Dravid's contribution and said it was known that they will perform well under him.

“We have been following their journey throughout the Test series. I think they have played some really good cricket and we always thought that this team has something special in them. With Rahul Dravid being the coach, we know these guys will do their best,” Rohit said.

Adding more to it, the 30-year-old complimented the Indian fast bowling. “Every game they have played, they have destroyed the opposition and that is always good to see. Their fast bowling has been really impressive, and everybody’s been talking about their bowling,” he added.

“I just hope that they do the same in the final as well. I know it’s not going to be that easy. Winning the championship is never easy. But we wish them success and the entire Indian team is watching them play from here. On behalf of the full squad here we all wish and hope they can bring the cup back to India,” Rohit signed off.
