MSK Prasad Picks T20 World Cup Squad

Former Indian cricketer and BCCI chief Selector, MSK Prasad feels Rahul Dravid is an ideal candidate to take over as the head coach after Ravi Shastri’s departure as his contract expires post the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 starting 17th October. Incidentally, Dhoni has been assigned the mentor’s role for the upcoming T20 World Cup while Dravid is the head of the National Cricket Academy.

Ravi Shastri, who has been serving as the head coach for the national side since 2017, will most likely step down from the role post the T20 world cup starting in October as his contract expires.

Speaking to Sports Tak, MSK Prasad believes Rahul Dravid and MS Dhoni are the best people to take Indian cricket forward after Ravi Shastri’s exit.

“Rahul as a coach, MS as mentor is going to be a boon for Indian cricket. Both are cool and calm customers and one person is very studious and hard-working.

“More importantly, the number of players that are evolving right now have been groomed by Rahul, who was India A coach also. So it is some wonderful planning that is happening. I will be very disappointed if Rahul is not going to be the coach and MS is not a mentor post this management era,” Prasad added.

Both Rahul Dravid, and MS Dhoni have played international cricket over the decades. Both are vastly experienced and can help and groom the youngsters for a bright future of Indian Cricket.

The former India captain recently coached Team India during the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka. While he has distanced himself from these questions, MSK Prasad believes Rahul Dravid can add value to the Indian side.

“In my heart, I had this feeling. I was challenged recently by my colleagues that definitely post Ravi bhai’s era, MS has to come into the role of a mentor and Rahul Dravid as a coach,” MSK Prasad said.

“These were the discussions I had with my fellow commentators while I was doing commentary during the IPL. I had a feeling that Rahul, being the studious person that he is, will add value to Team India post-Ravi bhai’s era,” he concluded.
