India head coach Rahul Dravid opens up on challenges with team selection

India head coach Rahul Dravid opens up on challenges with team selection. “I don’t claim to be an expert. You are affect, so I’m not claiming I always do it correctly. The hardest element of coaching or managing teams, according to Dravid, is that.

The selection committee and team management have received a lot of criticism in recent years. Since a number of talented cricketers who perform well at the domestic level were not select for the national team. When given no opportunity, Sarfaraz Khan and Prithvi Shaw even posted cryptic messages on their social media accounts. Veteran spinner Ravichandran Ashwin also missed out on the starting XI on a few occasions.

Many people expressed their concerns about Sarfaraz Khan’s exclusion and Cheteshwar Pujara’s removal on social media. In response, current India head coach Rahul Dravid stated that regardless of the team’s selection, a sizable portion of the fan base will be disappointed because there are only 15 players who can be included in the squad, and occasionally, they do leave some good cricketers out.

The 50-year-old eventually admitted that the management occasionally errs on the side of caution. That he is not always faultless, but he also said that he is emotionally tied to many of the players and feels awful for those who lose out.

“You have a personal connection with each of the individuals you teach, and you work to build those ties. More than as cricket players, you want to coach them as people. You want them all to succeed when you do that. However, you must also be realistic and acknowledge that not all of them will be successful. During the “Cred Curious” episode, Dravid observed, “There are moments when you have to make those hard choices.

Every time we choose a playing XI, we let down some people because other individuals are sitting out. There are many guys who believe they should be in the tournament 15 every time we choose them. And you get emotional sympathy for them. We all try, at least. I don’t claim to be an expert at it. You are affected, so I’m not claiming I always do it correctly. Making those difficult decisions regarding people you really want to succeed and do well is the hardest aspect of teaching or leading teams. However, the rule only allows you to select a certain number of players, he continued.
