Following India’s historic title victory in 2018 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced cash prizes of Rs 50, 30 and 20 lakhs for Rahul Dravid, the players and the support staff respectively.

But, Dravid asked BCCI to bring parity in the rewards. BCCI chief executive officer Rahul Johri stood by his decision and requested a change. The board went forward with equal pay for the coaching staff.

Twitter lauded Rahul Dravid and even request him to run for Prime Minister in 2019.

Even after India’s record fourth World Cup win, Dravid said: “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.”

“It’s a bit embarrassing at times because I tend to get a lot of attention and focus, but it is really about the support staff and the quality of people that we’ve had. I don’t want to mention names but everyone in the support staff has put in a great effort. We do the best for the kids.”
