However, Sanjay Manjrekar warned that the nation shouldn't get too carried away in celebrations.

India celebrated the U-19 World Cup triumph with great pomp as the boys returned after lifting the trophy in New Zealand.

However, Sanjay Manjrekar warned that the nation shouldn't get too carried away in celebrations.

Manjrekar said, "Important to not get too carried away by under 19 triumphs. From 2010 to 2016, off the 64 players that played in WCs, only 2 have made a real mark at the highest level.

#RealityCheck"

Even India U-19 coach Rahul Dravid warned that the boys should be prepared to face bigger challenges going ahead,

After the win, Dravid said that he would like to see the boys achieve bigger milestones and create many more memorable events.

"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.

Dravid went onto add that he would rather all the attention of this win be directed towards his players instead of him.

"Coaching this team I tend to get a lot of attention, but it is really about the quality of support staff that we have had and the effort they have put in has been amazing," he further added.
