Ravi Shastri Bats For Current India Head Coach Rahul Dravid, Says 'Give Him Some Time'

March 21,2023

Former India head coach Ravi Shastri has urged not to judge his successor Rahul Dravid's performance so soon and stated that the latter should be given a bit more time before rating his stint.

Dravid replaced Shastri after the 2021 T20 World Cup and has been at the helm for a little over one year. In this short time under Dravid, India finished in the top four of the Asia Cup and T20 World Cup in 2022.

"It takes time. It took me time and it's going to take him time too. But Rahul has an advantage that he was at the NCA, he was with the A team as well and now he's here too," Shastri was quoted as saying to Sports Tak.

"He is experienced with the contemporary cricketer players and with the system. Give him time," added the former India cricketer.
