The chance meeting between the two cricketers happened as Dravid was traveling with the Indian U-19 team for the World Cup, while Hafeez was with the Pakistan side that was New Zealand bound for the limited-overs cricket series.
Dravid’s next aim is to see a few of the World Cup-bound colts included in the ‘A’ team within the next six to eight months. “The World Cup is an exciting challenge and provides a good opportunity for all these guys. There is a process now in place in Indian cricket – U-19 cricket to first-class cricket and then to India A and then the India national team, when the opportunity arrives,” Dravid said at the pre-departure press conference of the India U-19 team.
“I have been talking to these players about other formats as well. If they can make it to the India A team in 6-8 months, it will be great. We see this as a stepping stone,” the former India captain said.
