After the BCCI announced that each player will receive 40 lakhs and support staff will receive 20 lakhs, it appears that cash will be raining on the winners of the U-19 World Cup players. These monetary rewards are well deserved for every player and support personnel as they have beaten all odds and bagged their 5th title in this championship.

According to, Sourav Ganguly has congratulated the entire squad with encouraging words. He says, ” I must also commend Head Coach Hrishikesh Kanitkar, members of the coaching group, support personnel, and VVS Laxman, Head of Cricket at the National Cricket Academy, for their efforts in keeping the squad in high spirits and guiding them to success. For our age-group cricketers, we have the greatest system in place, and some of the top coaches work directly with the lads”.

“During the group rounds of the competition, six Indian players, including captain Yash Dhull, tested positive for COVID-19, but the squad overcame the setback to win the title. Despite playing relatively little cricket in the lead-up to the World Cup this time, India went undefeated. This is simply amazing. The selectors did an outstanding job of selecting the best squad from a large pool of cricketers. The lads have a bright future ahead of them, and I wish them luck”, Ganguly concluded.
