India after displaying faltering performance in the recently concluded edition of the T20 World Cup has made a major comeback in a three-match T20 International series against Black Caps where they won the series by 3-0 under new coach and captain Rahul Dravid and Rohit Sharma.

What was even more heartening to see as Indian fans, unlike Shastri, the statement from Dravid was balanced which clearly indicates that the goal of Men in Blue is to win upcoming ICC tournaments.

“It was a really good series win. Everyone played really well right through the series. It feels good, nice to start well. We are also quite realistic. We have to keep our feet on the ground and be a bit realistic about this win,” Dravid said at the post-match presentation here.

“Not easy for New Zealand to play a World Cup final and then to turn up three days later and play three games in six days, was never going to be easy for them. It was nice from our perspective but we have to learn from this series and move forward.

“It’s a long journey ahead over the next two years and we’ll have our share of ups and downs.”

“It’s been really good to see some of the young guys come through. We have given opportunities to some of the boys who haven’t played a lot of cricket over the last few months. We have seen some of the skills available to us and we have to keep building on those skills as we go forward. It’s going to be a long season between now and the next World Cup being realistic with how much cricket some of our experienced players will play,” Dravid signed off.

As the likes of Kohli, Bumrah, Shami, and Jadeja who were resting for this T20 series will be making a comeback in the next T20 series and it will eventually make the Indian white-ball squad much stronger.
