‘Hope we do well in U-19 Cup’

Mumbai: Vijay Zol, who led India to the Under-19 Asia Cup title, said the team would not rest on its laurels and look to perform well in next month’s Junior World Cup in the UAE.

“The team has been doing well for the last four tournaments. There has been no single hero. Everyone has contributed to the team’s success. It has been a team effort. Just before the World Cup, everyone is in good nick, so it has been good for the team,” Zol said.

“We are hoping to do well in the World Cup (starting February 14) too,” he added.

Zol, who scored a hundred in the U-19 Asia Cup final against Pakistan, said it was a good experience to play against strong opponents.

“It was a good experience, playing against a few strong teams over there like Pakistan and Sri Lanka — who are well-known teams in the U-19 circuit.

“It was good to play hard cricket there for 10 days and it was good to win the fourth tournament just before entering the World Cup. We are taking the winning momentum with us (to the UAE),” he said.
