Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag has reckoned that the new Indian head coach Rahul Dravid will be focussing more on winning ICC trophies which have been a search hunt for a long time now. India last won an ICC trophy in 2013, and since then, the campaign in ICC tournaments hasn’t been great for India.

‘They have come close two times in 2014 with the ICC T20 World cup finals against Sri Lanka and in the 2017 Champions Trophy finals against Pakistan, but both the games ended in the opponent’s favour. With India almost on the verge of being knocked out of the T20 World cup 2021 now, the onus will next be on Rahul Dravid to win trophies for India.
