Rahul Dravid finally lifts the world cup.
Rahul Dravid’s under-19 Indian cricket team lifted the ICC Cricket World Cup 2018 by thrashing Australian team by 8 wickets in the final match at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui, New Zealand. No team has ever dominated a cricket tournament like this.
India at the #ICCU19WorldCup
– Beat Australia by 100 runs

While everyone is appreciating and showing love for the head coach Rahul Dravid, he begs to differ. Embarrassed by the attention, he said in the post match interview: “It’s a bit embarrassing that I have been getting all the focus but this is all about the players and support staff’s hard work.”

I’m glad he finally achieved his life long dream of lifting the world cup, and that he’s finally getting the love he always deserved. See what people on Twitter are saying:
Every Indian is delighted, all credit to Rahul Dravid for committing himself to these young kids ,and a legend like him deserves to lay his hands on the WC. Only Fitting. #INDvAUS

Typical Dravid. Kept saying ‘them’ because the team won. Had they lost, it would have been ‘we’.🙏🙏🙏#U19CWC

After a win :
Rahul Dravid : It’s embarrassing that I get a lot of credit & attention around whole team’s success. There are a lot of members in the support staff who have been equally valuable & wonderful bench of players.
Ravi Shastri : Where are the experts now?#Difference

For me the scene of the day is the entire bunch jumping behind Rahul Dravid while he is on air!! That’s some amount of space and freedom of expression in the young team! Kudos to Rahul for that.

Under 19 boys took the World cup and ran towards Rahul Dravid like a baby running towards mom after achieving something big… Goosebumps moments!

When other cricketers have lost all the respect after the retirement, Rahul Dravid has gained the reputation after retirement.#INDvAUS

What a humble man Rahul Dravid is – speaking about how the win should be about the players & not him & how the focus should be on the great work the players have done rather than himself #U19CWC
