In a video shared by the BCCI, Team India coach Rahul Dravid was heard saying, “Today was the landmark day for India under-19 Women’s cricket team and they had a fantastic day. I would like to pass it on winning Under-19 Boys captain to pass on a message to young girls.”

Prithvi Shaw, who led the India Under-19 team to lift the trophy in 2018 in New Zealand, said,” I think, it’s a great achievement. Everyone wants to congratulate the under-19 Women’s team. So Congratulations!” It was the fourth world title for India’s young guns.
