Even as Rahul Dravid confessed he was embarrassed with the attention and focus he was getting as the coach of the victorious India U-19 cricket team, Twitterati showered praise on the former India captain and his boys, who decimated Australia to win U-19 World Cup 2018 on Saturday, February 3.

Such was India's dominance that it looked like they did not drop a sweat throughout the tournament. Right from their first match, Prithvi Shaw-led team steamrolled their rivals and the final was not an exception.
