India coach Rahul Dravid insisted that he did not step into the Pakistan dressing room, as was widely believed, after the Under-19 World Cup semi-final.
Speaking at a press conference on the champion team's return from New Zealand on Monday, he revealed he went merely up to the dressing room to congratulate a Pakistan pacer, whose bowling he was left impressed with.
The former India captain said that the Pakistani team management was astounded by India's standard of cricket, a thought they relayed to the 45-year-old.
