It has been more than a year since Rahul Dravid was appointed as the coach of the Indian cricket team. One of the most respected batsmen during his playing days, Dravid’s appointment as head coach took place in November, 2021 when his former teammate and captain Sourav Ganguly was the BCCI president. A lot was expected when Dravid took over the reins of the team. However, India could not progress beyond the semi-final stage in the 2022 T20 World Cup.
Now, former BCCI president Ganguly has commented on Dravid’s performance as coach. “He has done very well barring the T20 World Cup. The team still went to the semi-finals and was just one match away from the final. He will do well. You have to give him time, he has one year left. This is a coach Very little time for that. He will turn this team around. You can see Shubman Gill emerging as a very good batsman and you will see a few other guys developing as well. There is Surya (Suryakumar Yadav), who has led the team Has done well in the shorter format. So, you have to give some time to Rahul. He will do well,” Ganguly told Sportstar,
Ganguly also commented on how the game has evolved over the years. “Cricket has changed a lot over the years. Not just cricket, every sport has changed. Cricket has become financially stronger. Even the quality has improved. I never knew that the quality And finances can go out of hand. The great Sunil Gavaskar will bat against it.” The West Indies legend is without a helmet.”
“Now India travels to countries like Australia, South Africa and England several times a year. Look at the Australian team. They are not even playing warm-up matches before the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. It is because they are familiar with Indian pitches. ” In my time I used to go to Australia once in 7-8 years.
