All the other members of the support staff will get Rs 20 lakh each by the board.
According to the Indian Express, Dravid has expressed his displeasure at the disparity between the cash prize he won versus his support staff and team. "It's somewhat humiliating now and again on the grounds that I have a tendency to get a considerable measure of consideration and concentrate, however it is extremely about the care staff and the nature of individuals that we've had".
Under the fine guidance of Mr Dependable, Rahul Dravid the Indian Under 19 lads have made the nation proud by winning the World Cup hosted in New Zealand.
It was an all-around performance by Team India who outshone the Pakistani side by 203 runs in the semi-finals clash. This time I was determined to put a process in place, not so much looking at the end result being trying to win the tournament - yes, it is nice we have won it, but that wasn't the idea. A special achievement by Indian team is it is unbeaten throughout the tournament.
Having done away with the practice of players representing the country in multiple U-19 World Cups, Dravid said he would like the current batch to feature in senior meets as against U-23 events.
While Rahul Dravid is one of the greatest players to have take the Cricket field, one important trophy had been missing from his cabinet - the World Cup. "I want them to enjoy great moments and bigger things in future", he said after India's victory. Even if they have a couple of tough years and fail, they'll be better off playing there. The talent and ability is there and they need to deal with the pressure and expectations hereon. "At least if they become good first class cricketers, from then on it becomes a stepping stone to play for India".
We didn't treat the game any different. Yet, Dravid was candidly admitted that his side didn't play it's "A" game in the final, but still got through. "Just the fact that they played the finals was an experience", said the former India captain after the victorious team's arrival here from New Zealand. That is where, by the time they are 23, some players have found the going too hard while some others have grown by leaps and bounds. What impressed me was the level of maturity that they have and the confidence that these players have.
