07cupAgencies, Bangalore
Indian colts, who are defending champions, will be the front runners to lift the ICC Under-19 World Cup that will be staged across the United Arab Emirates from February 14 to March 1.

The team will leave for Dubai tomorrow to take part in the event which will witness other top teams including Australia, Pakistan, South Africa, New Zealand, England and Sri Lanka.

The Indians will first clash with arch rivals Pakistan but team captain Vijay Zol said the team will not be under pressure as they had beaten them convincingly in the ACC Asia Cup finals recently.

Indian boys have been flying high after the last World Cup. During the last one year, they have won four major tournaments including Asia Cup.
“Match against Pakistan is a different ball game, but we are in a good position. We have beaten them twice. The league match in Asia Cup was exciting and anybody’s game, but we beat them convincingly in the final,” Zol explained.
Speaking to reporters at M Chinnaswamy Stadium here today where the 15-member squad went through a rigorous ‘Boot’ camp which dwelled more on striking cohesion in the team and a separate role for each one of the members.
