Former India captain Rahul Dravid is likely to take over the leadership of the Indian team during the tour in Sri Lanka in July. Ravi Shastri, the team’s head coach, will watch the Indian team during the England tour during that time.
This also means that India will send two separate teams at the same time. While the test team will remain in the United Kingdom to prepare for a five-game series against England, the limited-stakes country will take over Sri Lanka in three ODIs and as many T20Is.
Former Pakistan captain Inzamam ul Haq welcomed the idea of Dravid coaching the Indian team, recalling the experience of the great Indian youth and A team coach in the past.
“I also mentioned Rahul Dravid earlier … how he started producing players from the under-19 group who continued to play regularly for the Indian team. And even now I hear that the team that goes to Sri Lanka, Rahul Dravid can to be his coach, he can take care of him. I think that’s an amazing, interesting idea, “Inzamam said on his YouTube channel,” The Winner of the Match. “
Inzamam also said that India’s decision to place two different international teams at the same time could set a “benchmark for the other teams”.
“India is making a difference in world cricket and I believe that any country that strengthens its base, improves its first-class structure, that country would be able to do what India is doing now – to put two different international teams almost simultaneously. “India is able to do it successfully, it will set a benchmark for other teams,” said Inzamam.
