“Quality play with great dominance in all departments. Splendid display! Good luck for the finals,” Tendulkar tweeted.
Virender Sehwag who is known for his rib-tickling tweets took on twitter tweeting “That was brutal. What a win for our boys, thoroughly out playing Pakistan. Best wishes for the finals #INDvsPAK #U19WorldCup”
“Far superior performance than any side in the tournament. Congrats #TeamIndia. Just one step away from a huge milestone. The opportunity to play in a world cup final does not come everyday.. so, make the most of it,” Raina tweeted.
