Former captain of Team India and one of the legendary batsmen Rahul Dravid When he became the head coach of the Indian team, everyone expected that now the Men in Blue would perform well. Dravid took over as the head coach of the team after being knocked out in the very first round of the 2021 T20 World Cup. After that, Team India performed well in the bilateral series, but in the tournaments, the team once again appeared to perform poorly. India lost the Asia Cup under the leadership of Dravid and now the same situation happened in the T20 World Cup. After these two defeats, an atmosphere has started building against Dravid. Former cricketer Harbhajan Singh has even talked about connecting Ashish Nehra with the Indian coaching setup.
Harbhajan Singh believes that someone like Ashish Nehra should be a part of India’s T20 coaching system. Harbhajan believes that Nehra understands the T20 format better than current head coach Rahul Dravid. Let us tell you that Nehra had retired from the game in 2017 and earlier this year he had made Gujarat Titans the champion as head coach.
So won’t he be able to be alone with Dravid?
Harbhajan said in an interview to Bhasha, ‘In T20 format you should have someone like Ashish Nehra, who has recently said goodbye to the game. Nehra understands the T20 format better. I have played with Rahul Dravid for a long time and have full respect for him and I am not questioning his understanding of the game but this format is a bit different and complex.
Why is Nehra better?
Harbhajan said, ‘The player who has played this format recently is better for coaching work in T20. I am not saying that you should remove Rahul from T20. Both Ashish and Rahul can work together to build the team for the 2024 World Cup. Please tell that this statement of Harbhajan Singh is somewhere like a question on Rahul Dravid. Also now other cricket experts England They have started giving statements in support of the strategy of different head coaches in different formats. Now it remains to be seen what decision the Board of Control for Cricket in India takes.
