India’s new all format skipper Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid have started working on to rebuild the new team for the upcoming two world cups in mind. The players like Deeepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur and Harshal Patel are tried and tested as all-rounders in the recently concluded series against West Indies which Men in Blue won by 3-0 each in ODI and T20I series.
The other best thing about new captain-coach duo is to keep the communications open to all the players and tell them why they are playing or not in main X1 and example of Saha is the best to support this statement.
Coach Dravid cleared Saha ahead of selectors deciding to pick the squad for SL series that the latter are looking for young guns as the backup wicketkeeper in the longest format of the game so Saha might consider to retire.
Indian wicket keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik praised both the opening duo for overcoming their flaws and winning the series on the consistent basis.
“What I enjoyed most was Rohit’s captaincy. I thought he led the team beautifully. Tactically very, very sound, and I thoroughly enjoyed the way the team played in the last couple of series against West Indies,” Karthik was quoted as saying by Times Now.
“The new captain and there’s a new coach, I think they are taking the team in a fabulous direction. They’ve plugged small holes, which were probably there previously, and that has been the beautiful part about it. And along the way, in the journey, they’ve managed to become No.1,” he added.
Men in Blue suffered huge backlash after they failed to qualify in the recently concluded T20 World Cup and suffered 10 wickets loss against arch rivals Pakistan.
They are going through rebuilding phase and under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, Men in Blue are bound to flourish considering his tremendous track record as short format skipper in IPL.
