Rahul Dravid is undoubtedly one of the biggest gentlemen the game of cricket has ever seen. His spotless Test career was filled with lots of moment when he left everyone in awe of his utmost honesty and hard work.
However, he has passed the same qualities to his boys, whom he is guiding as being the coach of India U-19 team.
During today’s 203-run victory against Pakistan U-19, the Indian boys showed some exceptional sportsman spirit during the game.
First, it was Anukul Roy, who walked straight away after edging one ball to keeper during India’s batting. Umpire was unmoved by Pakistan’s appeal but he opted to walk back to the dressing room. Afterwards, the Indian captain, Prithvi Shaw showed some good reflexes while fielding in the slip cordon. He grabbed a good catch of Shaheen but was not sure whether it is a clean take or not.
