Former Indian batsman Virender Sehwag believes that Rahul Dravid as the Indian head coach will certainly inhibit confidence in a player as he gives ample opportunities until dropping them. Rahul Dravid getting appointed as the next Indian head coach will definitely be one of the happiest news the Indian cricket fans would have liked for, and it has finally happened.

Rahul Dravid will be replacing Ravi Shastri for the head coach position after the T20 World cup 2021, and his assignment for the Indian team is set to start with the home series against New Zealand. Dravid has already coached the Indian U-19 teams in the last few years and recently travelled with the Indian second-string side as the head coach to Sri Lanka for a limited-overs series.

Virender Sehwag Heaps Praise On Rahul Dravid’s Coaching Style

Virender Sehwag was highly delighted with Rahul Dravid entering the Indian team, and he mentioned the positives out of the legend taking over the head coach position. He noted that the players will be a lot more confident under him as the coach as they would get ample chances until being dropped from the team.

“His presence will bring stability, which we talk about all the time. The players will have the confidence that ‘I will get some more chances before getting dropped’. Because he has played at this level and he always believes that a player should be given enough opportunities before getting dropped,” Virender Sehwag told on Cricbuzz.

Virender Sehwag Weighs In On Rahul Dravid’s Positives

Virender Sehwag mentioned that the management had to back players and give enough support to improve their confidence and was quite convinced that Rahul Dravid will inhibit that factor into the team.

“We have been discussing for some time that the players are not confident, the management doesn’t support the players, they are dropped after just one game. Perhaps Rahul Dravid is also brilliant in the sense that he’ll give full opportunity to a player before sitting him out,” he added.
