The 11th edition of the tournament was dominated by the Indians like never before. Seldom has a unit maintained control throughout the course of the tournament in any form of cricket as the boys in blue did in New Zealand.
The eight-wicket victory in the final of the tournament not only brings Shaw and company into the limelight back home, with the prospect of breaking into the senior team now brighter than ever, but it also completes a fairytale for coach Dravid, who missed out on the glory in the 2016 edition with a loss to West Indies in the final.
Having carved a niche for himself as a batsman with a glittering career, Dravid has now set off along the path to creating a similar legacy as a coach.
