Coach Rahul Dravid reaction after winning the world cup : “Really proud of the boys and the effort they put in. I couldn’t be happier for them. It’s a memory they will hopefully cherish for a long, long time, but hopefully not the lasting memory and they have many more great moments in future. Also the support staff – I don’t want to mention names but everyone in the support staff has put in a great effort. We do the best for the kids.” – He said this while his wards gathered behind him and hogged the camera!
Captain Prithvi Shaw reaction : “I can’t express what I’m feeling now. All credit to our support staff, they’ve really been supporting us for the last two years. And full credit to the guys as well. Rahul sir is a legend. It was the final, a Manjot scored a really crucial hundred. Gill was batting really well too, and the two pacers, Mavi and Kamlesh, have been excellent throughout the tournament. Thanks for all the support from India. Great memories here. We’re looking forward to going back.”
