Former Indian batsman Aakash Chopra mentioned that Rahul Dravid, who is expected to be the next Indian head coach, will bring a process and a blueprint into the Indian team for the next 5 years. Ravi Shastri’s tenure will end after the T20 World cup 2021, and many names were discussed for the next position, while Rahul Dravid has been the most sought-after person.
Rahul Dravid is currently serving as the head coach at NCA initially wanted to extend his current role. However, the BCCI had a chat with him, and he changed his mind after that. He applied for the next Indian head coach post and is likely to take up the role after the T20 World cup 2021.
Aakash Chopra Reveals How Rahul Dravid Will Be Different
Aakash Chopra mentioned that Rahul Dravid will bring a process to the Indian side to help the Indian team keep their successful run. He added that Dravid will not rely on short-term plans, and rather than that, he will be working on creating a blueprint for the next five years.
“So, what will Rahul Dravid bring to the Indian team? I think he’ll bring a process. The Indian team is already very successful. It’s not like they are not performing well. This team got the better of Australia in Australia, and also has the potential to beat England in England.
“But, with Rahul Dravid, I see a blueprint for the next five years. He’s not going to come with a short term plan, but he’ll come with a blueprint for Team India for the next five to 10 years,” Aakash Chopra told on his Youtube show, Super Over.
Aakash Chopra Feels Rahul Dravid Will Win The Race Hands Down
Aakash Chopra reckoned that he is excited to look for the relationship between Rahul Dravid and the two Indian captains of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma(T20I only). He added that Dravid will become the next Indian head coach without a doubt.
“We can see a pair of ‘R’ and ‘R’ – Rahul Dravid and Rohit Sharma – for shorter formats and Dravid with Kohli in Test cricket. It’s going to be very exciting. If he has formally applied for the head coach’s job, other applications won’t even be considered. It’s a race where no other coach can win,” he added.
Rahul Dravid travelled with the second-string Indian side as the head coach for the series against Sri Lanka, and he has already been impressive.
