Post Shastri era, MS and Dravid have to come into the picture - MSK Prasad

Dravid coached India in the Sri Lanka tour in July

Ravi Shastri has enjoyed a highly successful time as the coach of the Indian team and his tenure will come to an end in late November, post the T20 World Cup in UAE. While there is no confirmation regarding the next appointment, it is widely speculated that Rahul Dravid may take over the role. 

Further, MS Dhoni joining Team India as a mentor for the T20 World Cup has only added fuel to the fire. MSK Prasad, India's former chairman of selectors, has claimed that Dhoni and Dravid would definitely come into the picture very soon.

"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 coach. 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," Prasad told Sports Tak.

Prasad further stated that he will be very disappointed if MS Dhoni and Rahul Dravid don't take up the role permanently very soon. He feels that the partnership can take the flag of Indian cricket onward and upward.

"Rahul as a coach, MS as a 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.
