India's World Cup winning off-spinner Harbhajan Singh believes India has benefitted from the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup as a number of top performers from the event, billed as a finishing school for future stars, have moved on to serve the country at the highest level

“India has been lucky to find some very good and talented cricketers from the ICC U19 Cricket World Cups. The likes of Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Mohammad Kaif, Irfan Pathan and Virat Kohli have come through these World Cups.

“I am sure this time too we will be able to find some cricketers from the tournament. Who knows maybe in 2015, someone from the India U19 side will be a key member of the senior team at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. It is a tournament of immense importance for cricket in general and Indian cricket in particular,” said Harbhajan who played in the ICC U19 CWC 1998 in South Africa.
