Former India opening batsman Gautam Gambhir believes that newly-appointed India head coach Rahul Dravid will not get carried away with all the success he gets during his tenure.

Rahul Dravid was appointed as the new Head Coach of India after the exit of Ravi Shastri from the team and his first assignment as a Head Coach will be T20I and Test series at home against New Zealand.

Speaking on Star Sports in the lead up to the first T20I between India and New Zealand, Gautam Gambhir said :

One thing with Rahul Dravid is he will not get carried away with all the success.”

Gambhir also feels that no big statements will be made by Dravid after the success because he knows that youngsters in the team might get carried away with it. He also said that the big statements were being made in the team from the last two years. He said:

And probably there will not be a lot of big statements which will be made after success as well which is very important because sometimes, as a young group of players can get carried away with this kind of statements which we were used to in the last two years from the team management.

Former Indian opener also said that Dravid and Rohit Sharma both are balanced person and he was hoping that the Rahul-Rohit combination will bring a lot of success to Indian cricket. He asserted:

Rahul will be very, very balanced. Now he has got Rohit Sharma who is itself a very balanced guy. I hope the combination brings a lot of success to Indian cricket.”

Gambhir further added that the Indian cricket fraternity should have realistic expectations from Head Coach Rahul Dravid because things will not change in one or two series. He said:

Assurance, a lot of hard work and a lot of discipline as well (things that Dravid brings to the table). At the same time, we need to be realistic with our expectations as well. Things will not change in one or two series. I know there will be a lot of expectations from Rahul Dravid and Rohit Sharma because we haven’t achieved a lot of success in ICC tournaments.”

Gambhir also believes that Dravid brings a lot of work ethic and discipline to the table however at the end of the day the players are the ones who have to perform on the ground.

But yes, the assurance point of view, freedom and discipline point of view, which I think is very, very important, and the work ethic for anyone to grow and get better in international cricket

“I think Dravid brings all of that to the table. The players will have to do it, the coach can only enable them. It’s not that the coach is going to go there and achieve that success. He will give them a lot of assurance,” he added.
