Ravi Shastri hailed Rahul Dravid’s coaching skills

ENG VS IND: The fifth Test between India and England is currently underway at Birmingham, and former head coach Ravi Shastri has backed Rahul Dravid to succeed in his position.

He claimed that under Dravid’s leadership, India could reach greater heights. India have now topped every foreign country in the Tests except South Africa under Shastri’s leadership, making them one of the best touring teams in the world.

Under his leadership, India began playing an aggressive brand of cricket, especially in the game’s longest format, which transformed the culture in the locker room. India’s pace attack, which possessed one of the most feared fast bowling groups in cricket, flourished greatly under his leadership.

After a poor T20 World Cup in 2021, Rahul Dravid took over as the 1983 World Cup winner. But Dravid’s fledgling coaching career didn’t exactly get off to the best start due to injuries and problems of captain. But in a recent interview, Shastri defended the former India captain. To say he was successful with the U-19 team and came from a good system.

The former cricketer who is now a broadcaster also underlined the importance of being tough while leading the Indian team as the media are continually on their backs. Shastri claimed that throughout his tenure he never cared about the media as he knew his team would be praised when they performed well and criticized if they did not.


“No better person to succeed me than Rahul. I got the job by mistake. I was in the comment box and I was asked to go and I did my part. But Rahul is a guy who went through the system and did the tough jobs.Ravi Shastri.

He further added:He was the coach of the U-19 team and then he took over the Indian team and I think he will appreciate that, once the team starts to respond to what he says.

Media concerns were the furthest thing from my mind. The media will respond as you wish if the boys perform. They have the right to humiliate you if you do poorly, and you will be praised if you do well.

Our task was to highlight the aspects of Indian cricket that the media did not like. In reality, we were bullies at home and our cricket performance abroad was poor. Therefore, my task with the team was to refute them.
