Earlier, India coach Rahul Dravid had said a match against Pakistan could be a good learning curve for the players. Dravid said, “It’s exciting to play an India-Pakistan game because under-19 cricket is all about experiences, about giving them different learning environs. The last couple of years we haven’t had a chance to play Pakistan at any level, so it’s really nice that it has panned out the way it has.”
