The ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup will be played in the West Indies from today. Yash Dhul-led Team India coach Hrishikesh Kanitkar is confident that the team will do well in this tournament. India will start their campaign against South Africa in Group B on January 15. Earlier, Kanitkar has praised Dhull and said that he has the ability to take tough decisions on the field.
Kanitkar believes that youngster Yash Dhul is the perfect choice for the captaincy. He said, 'The first quality you should have to become the captain of any team is that you should have respect for your team. Without it you can be a good captain or player, but you will not be able to function. Yash Dhul has got the respect of all his players. He is capable of taking tough decisions on the field when needed. A captain cannot be asked to work every time. The captain has to take his own decisions and Yash can do that.
India defeated Australia by nine wickets in a warm-up match in Guyana prior to the tournament. This will boost the morale of the team. Harnoor Singh scored a century in this victory and Dhul scored an unbeaten half-century. Kanitkar described Dhul's captaincy as comfortable and said that young players like to do their jobs with perfection.
Dhul said that he liked the on-field attitude of India's Test captain Virat Kohli. He that they try to work in the same way. Let us tell you that India is the most successful team having won four titles in 2000, 2008, 2012 and 2018. Apart from this, India has also been runner-up in the previous edition of the tournament held in 2016 and in 2020 in New Zealand.
