New Delhi: The Indian cricket team has announced a limited overs series against Sri Lanka next month. Most importantly, former India captain and NCA chief Rahul Dravid will coach Team India on the tour of Sri Lanka. On this occasion, Rahul Dravid has talked about his old experiences related to coaching.
Rahul Dravid has previously worked as a coach with India Under-19s and India A. Rahul Dravid says that when he was the coach of the team, his aim was to give every player a chance in the match. However, Dravid will no longer travel with the India A and Under-19 teams.
Rahul Dravid said, “I told him in advance that if you come with me on that team tour, you will not come here without playing a match. When I was playing at the junior level, I had my own experience. It would have been so bad not to get a chance to go on a team tour and play a match.
The selectors were asked to come up with a special way
Dravid also told the players how to get noticed by the selectors. “I used to tell the players, you do well,” the former captain said. You scored 700-800. You go with the team and there you will not get a chance to show your ability. You will then have to score those 800 runs again next season to grab the selectors’ attention.
Dravid said Indian cricketers are now considered the most suitable in the world. Dravid admitted that the health of South Africa and Australia was much better than the previous Indian players and he did not understand much about it. Dravid is now the head of the National Cricket Academy and is playing a key role in preparing the next generation of cricketers.
