JP Duminy supports Rahul Dravid to be India's coach

South African all-rounder and current Delhi Daredevils (DD) cricketer JP Duminy believed that Rahul Dravid is deserved to be Indian coach if he wants to take the job.

Former Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid, who was famous as “The Wall” during his international cricketing career, is currently serving for IPL team Delhi Daredevils as a mentor. JP Duminy is currently playing under Dravid’s mentorship.

The BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) is currently finding a coach for the national cricket team, as they have already approached many former cricketers for that role.

During a conversation with The Telegraph from Raipur, Duminy said on Indian coaching, “If Rahul himself wants the job… He’s first got to have that desire. Rahul has done his apprenticeship… Worked with India A and the India U-19s… Mentored teams in the IPL… He’s through with the hard yards, now he has to make an important call.”

Recently, Dravid has served India A and India U-19 team as a coach where his team performed brilliantly on the field. Under his coaching, India U-19 team was finished as a runner-up in ICC U-19 World Cup 2016.

When Duminy was asked about his experience of working with Dravid, Duminy replied, “It has been great… What stands out is Rahul’s man-management…

“When a mentor or coach deals with international players, it’s not about teaching technique, but getting the best out of everybody…

“That is what coaching and mentoring are all about…

“Rahul is aware of what is required, knows how to get the best out of the franchise’s players.”

Earlier, Indian cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar also back Dravid to coach the national team while Indian senior off-spinner Harbhajan Singh also wants to see Rahul Dravid as India’s coach.

Also at earlier, former Australian captain Ricky Ponting also said that Dravid would be an ideal coach for team India.
