It cannot be denied that Dravid has the credentials and experience required to coach the Indian team. However, former India cricketer Aakash Chopra does not think that Dravid is going to be India’s coach. This is not the first time that Dravid’s name is in the discussion in the list of possible coaches of the Indian team. Dravid was being discussed even after Kumble’s departure. However, four years ago, Dravid kept himself away from the race of coach. Chopra feels that the same will happen this time as well.
He said, “I don’t think Rahul Dravid is going to put his name in the list. If Rahul says he wants to be India’s coach then there could be a fight. If he wants, it will be a strong fight.” Dravid had stressed on the need to spend more time with family last time and remained with the India A and U-19 teams. With India playing only a six-match series on the Sri Lanka tour, he readily accepted the role. Shastri will get a tough competition if Dravid joins the race for coach.

Chopra further said, “But if Dravid expresses reluctance, no other candidate will be able to stand before Shastri. I believe so.” Chopra doesn’t think there is even a need to change the coach. The Indian cricket team may not have won the ICC trophy under Shastri’s leadership, but the overall performance of the team has not received much criticism. According to Chopra, Shastri can give his services to Team India for the next two years. India has to play T20 World Cup and ODI World Cup during this period.

If India wins the T20 World Cup this year under Shastri’s coach, it will be impossible to remove him from this post. If India gets out soon, then problems may arise for Ravi Shastri.
