Team India’s performance in both bat and ball was good from the beginning of this ODI World Cup. It can be said that Rohit Sharma was on the verge of the title with 10 wins in a row. But in the end, the story for Rohit-Kohli is a sad one. Australia made India cry and won the title in Ahmedabad.
Meanwhile, Rahul Dravid’s coaching phase in Indian cricket ended immediately after the final in the 19th World Cup. The contract was signed with The Wall fame Dravid until the World Cup. At the end of the final, this batting legend is officially no longer the coach of India. The journey that started after the T20 World Cup in 2021 ended with the agony of losing the final.
Dravid has won only Asia Cup as a coach for India. In addition, the team was unsuccessful in two other major events. Team India could not go to the final of the 2022 T20 World Cup. They had to lose to England in the semi-final by a big margin of 10 wickets. And in the 2023 World Cup, the year 2003 was repeated. India lost the title to Australia.
Dravid has not been offered a contract since the World Cup. Several Indian media reported that he has not yet been contacted by the board. But in the meantime, India’s new preoccupation is starting. Will play T20 series against Australia from Thursday (November 23). After that they also have a series against South Africa. National Cricket Academy head VVS Laxman can be seen as India’s coach in these two series. Earlier, he was also seen as India’s coach during Dravid’s rest period. It is not unusual to see this former batsman in charge of India in these two series. Source: bd-pratidin.
