Rahul Dravid will do an incredible job as Indian coach: Shane Watson

Australian veteran all-rounder Shane Watson said that Rahul Dravid will do an incredible job as an Indian coach. He should step in as India’s coach if the board gives the nod for the vacant post.

“At the starting point, there is no doubt about the quality of person Rahul Dravid is. I was very fortunate to know him well while working with him at Rajasthan Royals (first as the captain) and (later as the) mentor and then learning about his cricketing abilities,” Watson told IANS.

“There is no doubt that he will do an incredible job if he gets the chance to coach India and also with Virat Kohli who is continuing to grow in this IPL as a leader. He is an incredible man. He has an amazing amount of experience to pass on to the youngsters,” added the 34-year-old, who quit international cricket after the 2016 WT20.

Many cricketing experts like Sunil Gavaskar and Harbhajan Singh have made it clear that they would like to see Rahul Dravid to take the most important jobs in world cricket.

Watson who played under Dravid for Rajasthan Royals said that he has all the qualities to do well with Virat Kohli in all three formats after Dhoni steps down from captaincy from limited overs format.

Watson is currently playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore. He has played a crucial role in helping RCB to reach the finals of IPL 9.

Rahul Dravid has been the coach of Under 19 and India A squad for the past 2 years. The India Under 19 reached the finals of ICC World Cup 2016. Rahul Dravid was the mentor of Delhi Daredevils team this season. The youngsters like Sanju Samson, Rishabh Pant, Karun Nair performed well.
