“Congratulations to the India U-19 team on the #AsiaCupU19 win! Their preparations were, among other things, affected by the weather, but it’s a pleasure to see them improve in the game.
“It’s as satisfying as winning a title. Ideal confidence booster for the World Cup,” Laxman tweeted.
In the final, Indian bowlers were all over Sri Lanka, gasping for 74 for seven in 33 overs when it rained heavily at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium and play stopped for more than two hours.
It became a 38-over side contest when Sri Lanka resumed the game at 106 for nine.
India were set a revised target of 102 runs via the DLS method, which they achieved in 21.3 overs with opener Angkrish Raghuvanshi scoring an unbeaten 56 off 67 balls.
BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jay Shah also congratulated the team on the victory.
