The T20 World Cup Is Around The Corner – Gautam Gambhir
Gautam Gambhir praised the extension of Rahul Dravid‘s contract as Team India’s head coach, emphasizing the continuity in the support staff with the T20 World Cup approaching. Gambhir also extended congratulations to Dravid and the support staff.
“It’s a good thing because the T20 World Cup is around the corner and you don’t want to change the entire support staff, and it is good that Rahul has accepted it. Hopefully, we can continue to dominate and play good cricket, what India has done for a long period of time. The T20 format is different and challenging and hopefully, Rahul and the support staff can deliver. Congratulations to them,” Gambhir told ANI.
Dravid’s second stint as the head coach will commence with the tour of South Africa, featuring three ODIs and T20Is each and two Tests. Team India will then play a five-match Test series against England at home. He will most likely coach the team in the T20 World Cup as well in June.
The Last Years Have Been Thoroughly Memorable – Rahul Dravid
Rahul Dravid acknowledged the sacrifices of his family and affirmed the team’s commitment to excellence in facing new challenges post-World Cup. Dravid highlighted the importance of following the right process and sticking to preparations for achieving positive results.
“The last two years with Team India have been thoroughly memorable. Together, we have witnessed the highs and lows, and throughout this journey, the support and camaraderie within the group have been phenomenal. I am genuinely proud of the culture we have set in the dressing room. It’s a culture that stands resilient, whether in moments of triumph or adversity. The skills and talent that our team possesses are phenomenal, and what we’ve stressed is following the right process and sticking to our preparations, which has had a direct impact on the overall result,” Dravid said.
“I thank the BCCI and the Office Bearers for placing their trust in me, endorsing my vision, and providing support during this period. The demands of this role necessitate considerable time away from home, and I deeply appreciate my family’s sacrifices and support. Their instrumental role behind the scenes has been invaluable. As we embrace new challenges post the World Cup, we remain committed to the pursuit of excellence,” he added.
