Rahul Dravid got rest from New Zealand tour
Ravi Shastri had expressed displeasure on Dravid
Ravichandran Ashwin came to the rescue of Dravid
New Delhi: After the defeat in the semi-final match of T20 World Cup 2022, head coach Rahul Dravid has been rested. Dravid was reprimanded by former coach Ravi Shastri after he was rested from the New Zealand tour. Now Indian veteran spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has responded to Shastri’s rebuke. He has said that not only he but the support staff along with other players also needed rest.
Ravi Shastri said in a press conference organized by Amazon Prime, ‘I do not believe in brakes. I want to understand my team and players. To be honest, why do you need so many brakes. You get two to three months during IPL. Isn’t that enough? I think the coach should be practical.
Former Pakistani captain said- ‘Don’t know who is looking at Hardik Pandya as captain’
Ashwin came to the rescue of Dravid:
Ashwin said through his YouTube channel, ‘I will explain why a whole different team has gone to New Zealand with Laxman. Rahul Dravid and the entire team worked hard before the T20 World Cup. I saw it closely. He had plans against every team. So they are tired not only mentally but also physically and hence everyone needs a break. As soon as the New Zealand tour is over, we will go on a Bangladesh tour. That’s why we have a separate coaching staff under the leadership of Laxman.
Please tell that Team India is on a tour of New Zealand. The first T20 match was canceled due to rain on Friday. The Indian team will play the next T20 match on Sunday. The same ODI series against New Zealand will start from 25 November.
