Most of the fans of Indian cricket wholeheartedly appreciate the mentor of Indian Cricket Team, legendary Rahul Dravid not only for his vital contribution as a cricketer as well as a captain but also his cool ways of infusing positivity under any given circumstances. Before the commencement of the second ODI in England Rahul shared his views on the series and the future he said “If you start losing games you don’t know what your team combination is. If you win and players establish their positions in the side, you have a better idea of the team. There is no doubt in the run up to the World Cup that the team will try to have some wins under its belt. They want to have that confidence going into the World Cup and know what your team is”.

Underlining the importance of this series from India’s point of view he stated “It is an important tournament from India’s perspective because they haven’t done well overseas recently. Though they have done well in the Champions Trophy but in the last couple of series they haven’t done well. From individual player’s perspective it is also a great opportunity. Just a limited number of games are left to go into the World Cup and they can stake a claim for a place in the World Cup squad. There are actually a few spots that are up for grabs and players have to establish themselves in the lead up to the World Cup.”

Relying on the future role to be played by the fresher’s he emphasized “There will be fresh energy in the team with fresh players coming in. Players like Suresh Raina, Sanju Samson and Ambati Rayudu will be fresh. I feel fresh conversations in the dressing room will pick up the team.”

It is worth mentioning that Sanju Samson has admitted that he gets a lot of inspiration from Rahul Dravid, his senior in the Rajasthan Royals Team.
