“I am really proud of the boys, proud of the effort that they have put in and proud of the support staff as well. I think the effort we have put in over the last 14 months have been sensational. They really deserved this, couldn’t be really happier and proud for this bunch of boys. It’s really nice for them and hopefully it’s a memory they’ll cherish for a long time, and hopefully it’s not a memory that defines them and they will have a lot more bigger and better memories as they go on ahead in their careers,” Dravid told Simon Doull after the match.

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) declared a cash reward for Dravid and his team:

With this win, India becomes the first nation to win the ICC U19 World Cup four times. It has already won in the year 2000, 2008 and 2012. Before this win, India defeated Australia in the final in the year 2012
