On the big day, Indian bowlers reduced Australia to a modest 216.

India XI: P Shaw*, M Kalra, S Gill, H Desai (wk), R Parag, A Sharma, A Roy, K Nagarkoti, S Mavi, S Singh, I Porel. Prithvi Shaw, Manjot Kalra and others thanked their coach in post-match interviews.

Besides his spin, Abhishek is also a hard-hitting lower middle-order batsman, who can score some quick runs.

It was only fitting that he reached the three figures in the last over of the final. Roy, returning from an ankle injury, failed to impress in the first match v Australia, conceding 36 runs in five overs and claiming one wicket. However, he has something the other two quicks don't - height.

Having topped the Group B table, Indian juggernaut continued in the knockout phase too.

Bangladesh were next in the line of fire and crashed to a 131-run defeat in the quarterfinals.

Which Youngsters will rule the Cricket World?

Dravid spoke about the effort that the entire batch put on for the last 14 month, which bore fruit.

India were near flawless in snatching hard catches and inducing run outs through direct hits. It also provided Rahul Dravid the biggest success of his coaching career.

It was a festive atmosphere in his locality in Chandannagar, about 50 kilometres away from Kolkata in Hooghly district, as thousands gathered with Tricolours and Ishan's posters to celebrate the World Cup win. Being himself a great of the game, he has instilled the necessary discipline, application, attitude and competitive spirit among his boys.

While in most cases, players are paid more than the coach, the policy decision of paying Dravid larger share as "the stature of the coach matters a lot", admitted a senior BCCI official.
