Harsha Bhogle Remembers Rahul Dravid for Being “Finishing School”

What Indian cricket team has done throughout the Test series Down Under has impressed one and all. The experts have hailed the boys out there for immense mental strength. One name that has been mentioned by the experts often is the name of legendary cricketer Rahul Dravid.

Rahul Dravid’s contribution

One of the finest Test batters of all time took the coaching job of Under-19 Indian cricket team after his retirement. Dravid who has always spoken about the growth of grassroots took the responsibility of nurturing the future of Indian cricket. And the outcome was visible. His call of taking care of youngsters was appreciated by all and everyone believed that Indian cricket was in safe hands.

After the brief coaching stint, Dravid was given the responsibility of National Cricket Academy in Bangalore. The academy is backed by the Indian cricket board and one of the finest ones for the budding players. Clearly, Dravid has been associated with the game from the very basic level. No wonder, his exposure and experience help in the growth of the future of Indian cricket.

Why is Dravid being remembered now?

Whenever any youngster who has worked under Rahul Dravid at any level excels, the man is remembered by all for his contribution. The Indian cricket team is currently playing the final Test match against Australia in Gabba and almost all regular players are injured. Indian team is without any of their regular bowlers but has refused to surrender. The bowlers have shown enough efforts and tried their best to stop Australian batsmen. The courage is incomparable. The bench strength that Indian cricket team currently boasts of has been the results of fine-tuning by Rahul Dravid.

Harsha Bhogle hence tweeted after first day’s play about the man behind this success. “If India is still able to put out a reasonable team, we should applaud the ‘A’ tours over the last 3-4 years. Without them, the gap between FC and international cricket would have been very tough to bridge. Quiet thanks to Rahul Dravid too for the finishing school he has been.”
