The Indian tour to Sri Lanka came to an end after the hosts defeated India in the third T20I and won the 3-match series by 2-1. The Indian squad won the first T20I of the series but after Krunal Pandya tested COVID-19 positive, not only he was isolated but eight other players who were in close contact with him were also isolated and then the Indian side played with four debutantes in the second T20I which Sri Lanka won.
The head coach of Shikhar Dhawan led squad was Rahul Dravid who has been praised a lot for his coaching efforts not just during this tour but earlier as well when he was the coach of the U-19 Indian team that won the U-19 World Cup and he has also served as the coach in the National Cricket Academy.
The term of Ravi Shastri as the Indian team’s head coach is ending with the T20 World Cup which will be played in UAE and many Indian cricket lovers are demanding that Rahul Dravid should replace Ravi Shastri as India’s head coach.
However, the former Indian cricketer who is also referred to as The Wall by his fans has not given a thought on the matter of becoming the head coach as he likes to enjoy the present. During an interview, Rahul Dravid said that he enjoyed the experience that he had on the Sri Lankan tour and he did not think about anything else other than this tour.
He further added that though he loved working with these Indian cricketers, he is also aware of the fact that there are a lot of challenges as far as the role of the full-time coach of the national team is concerned.
The Indian side led by Shikhar Dhawan won the 3-match ODI series by 2-1 but lost the 3-match T20I series by 2-1. The senior Indian team led by Virat Kohli is in England at the moment and they will be playing 5-match test series against the England cricket squad starting Aug 4.
