Speaking ahead of the commencement of the play, Rahul Dravid said that the responsibility is on the players and the captain to execute the plans and take the team forward when they are on the field. He asserted:

“I see my role as a support to the captain and the team. Helping the team to get the best out of themselves. But once they are on the field, it’s up to the players and the captain to execute their plans and take the team forward.”

He added that the Indian captain Rohit, who decided not to play the game against Afghanistan as he wanted to rest, is pretty relaxed. He said:

I think Rohit is pretty relaxed, and pretty much the whole team is. You got to put things in perspective. We lost a couple of games on a pitch, on a ground that has not been easy to defend on.”

Just because we have lost a couple of games, it doesn’t mean we are a terrible team – Rahul Dravid

India National Cricket Team head coach further said that the Men In Blue have lost a couple of games in the tournament, but it doesn’t make them a terrible team. He said:

“Just because we have lost a couple of games, it doesn’t mean we are a terrible team. I think we don’t need to overreact with things. It’s a balanced environment, whether we win or we lose. We keep going on the same path, the journey continues.”
