Calcutta: Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh believes that India has benefited from the Under-19 World Cup, as a number of top performers such as Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh and Virat Kohli, besides himself, have come through these tournaments.
With 11 days to go for the start of the U-19 World Cup, which will take place in Australia, Harbhajan said: “India has been lucky to find some very good and talented cricketers from the ICC U-19 World Cups.”
“I am sure this time too we will be able to find some cricketers from the tournament. Who knows someone from the India U-19 side will be a key member of the senior team at the World Cup 2015. It is a tournament of immense importance for cricket in general and Indian cricket in particular,” said Harbhajan, who played in the 1998 Under-19 meet in South Africa.
