Team India Coach Rahul Dravid Press Conference: The T20 series between India and New Zealand is starting from tomorrow (Wednesday) in Jaipur. The remaining two matches of the series will be played in Ranchi and Kolkata. This is the first assignment for Team India’s newly appointed coach Rahul Dravid and T20I captain Rohit Sharma. This pair of Dravid and Rohit Sharma held a press conference on Tuesday before the match. After a disappointing performance in the T20 World Cup, this will be a new beginning for Team India.
Rahul Dravid said that we are not paying attention to different teams in different formats. At this time we need to respect the physical and mental health of the players. I want the players to stay fresh and these are challenging times so I want to make sure the players get rest.
Dravid said that we will not have players who play in all formats all the time . This will be a chance for other players to show their talent. Right now I am not looking at different teams in different formats. He said that all three formats are equally important for us. Obviously, with the ICC tournament coming up, we need to prepare for them. As far as vision is concerned, we would like to improve overall.
workload management very important
Rahul on abp news’s query regarding workload management Dravid said that workload management is very important if the Indian team is to be taken on the path of success. Nowadays if you look at the football teams also, then all the teams pay attention to the workload management. We also have to pay attention to this.
Dravid said that even if you look at Kane Williamson, he is also not playing in this series and this is also part of workload management. So this is not only a challenge for Team India, but it is the biggest challenge for any team in the world today. The coach of the Indian team said that we will make such a plan so that the cricketers can stay fit. The team can do well in every series and can also achieve what our long term plan is.
