India U-19 team captain Yash Dhull said that he had set a target to represent India’s senior team in the next 18 months. Yash Dhull returned home on Thursday after winning the U-19 World Cup in West Indies.

It was a roller-coaster ride for Yash Dhull in the last month or so. He started his World Campaign brilliantly with two back-to-back half-centuries in warm-up games then he scored 82 in the opening game against South Africa. But then he was tested positive for Covid-19 and missed a couple of games. Then in the semifinal game, he scored a match-winning against Australia and the rest is history.

However now the 19-year old is eying selection to the senior team.

That is my target but If I am not able to do that in the 18-month time frame, I will keep working hard till I attain my goal,” said Dhull.

Yash Dhull became the 3rd Indian captain to score a century in the U-19 World Cup. Coincidentally other two (Virat Kohli and Unmukt Chand were also from Delhi). Virat Kohli had a chat with the U-19 team ahead of the World Cup final.

“Virat bhai shared his experience with me on what happened with him post the U19 World Cup (in 2008). Virat bhai shared his experience with me on what happened with him post the U19 World Cup (in 2008),” he said.

Yash Dhull’s next challenge will be the red-ball format as he has been picked for Delhi Ranji Trophy. Talking about his transition from U-19 cricket, Dhull said that he’s prepared for the challenge.

“I will have to change my mindset for the red ball game, preparation will be different. I don’t think it will be a lot different and tougher than the white ball. The red ball does a bit early on but if you can see that initial period batting becomes easier.

“It is all about the mindset from here on. Physically how fit you are. It is not one specific area, I will have to work on all my shots to become a better player,” he added.
