MCQ

Rahul Dravid, the head coach of India’s Under-19 cricket team, explained that the 2018 Under-19 World Cup team selection strategy was about providing opportunities to a lot more players to come into the India Under-19 fold. He explained that more than winning — which is not the right touchstone of success of a program at this level — what matters is how many of the players are able to move to the next level, which is playing first-class cricket. He, therefore, made a conscious decision to not select players from the previous World Cup to the 2018 Under-19 World Cup squad. 

Which one of the following statements is consistent with Dravid’s selection strategy for the 2018 Under-19 World Cup as stated above? 

Options

  • Selecting an inexperienced team at the under-19 level ensures failure and players who experience failure learn to be humble.

  • Playing a sport is more important than winning or losing

  • The Under-19 World Cup is a stepping-stone to first-class cricket and winning it should not be the end-goal.

  • When players are under the age of 19, they do not feel stressed about playing at a World Cup; however, as they age, their ability to play well depends on the number of matches they have already played.

Solution

The Under-19 World Cup is a stepping-stone to first-class cricket and winning it should not be the end-goal.

Explanation:

The correct answer is - the Under-19 World Cup is a stepping-stone to first-class cricket and winning it should not be the end-goal. This is clear from Dravid’s statement that winning is not the right touchstone of success, and that what matters more is how many players are able to move to the next level, that is, playing first-class cricket. None of the other options is supported by the information in the passage, and so, cannot be the correct answer.
