Former India batter VVS Laxman has praised the Indian Under-19 squad for their "phenomenal" effort to get over the line against Ireland despite missing six players due to COVID-19. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Wednesday announced that some members of the India U-19 squad, including captain Yash Dhull, have tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, Nishant Sindhu captained India in the match against Ireland in the ongoing U-19 World Cup. In the match, India made it two wins from two in the tournament thanks to a brilliant batting performance against Ireland.

VVS Laxman said Team India showed tremendous character and maturity in their clash against Ireland.

"Tremendous show of character and maturity from the U-19 team. With just 11 players available for today's game, to go out and express themselves the way they did was phenomenal. Can't say how proud I am of them! The Ireland match is one they will cherish for life," Laxman tweeted.
