Dravid will bring work ethic that he embodied during his playing days: Gavaskar

After a successful stint at the NCA, India A and the Under-19 side, Dravid will take over as India head coach after the T20 World Cup

Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar feels newly-appointed India head coach Rahul Dravid will bring the sort of work ethic he embodied when he played the game, into this Indian side.

Dravid will succeed Ravi Shastri as the new India head coach after the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2021. 

"Indian cricket should be going ahead and ahead. He will bring his vast experience, the work ethic that he embodied when he played the game, the deep thinking about tactics and so on," Gavaskar told India Today.

India beat Afghanistan by 66 runs in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday (November 3) to stay alive in the competition. They will take on Scotland on Friday (November 5) followed by Namibia on Monday (November 8) in Dubai.

Gavaskar said in the remaining two matches, Dravid can assess a few things for outlining his future plans. "You need to have some instinctiveness during matches but you also need to be able to plan and I think this and the win over Afghanistan is probably the best news Indian cricket has had over the last one week or so," said Gavaskar.

"After this tournament is over, you've got to have a new coach and the earlier he is appointed, the better it is because he will also get time to plan.

"There are still two more matches that India have to play. Right now it is time for Dravid to take stock of the situation after watching the matches and he will then decide what is best for Indian cricket," added the respected analyst.
