Rahul Dravid’s Message to Indian T20 World Cup Players

Rahul Dravid, the head coach of the Indian cricket team, revealed what he wants from players vying for a spot in the T20 World Cup roster.

According to India head coach Rahul Dravid, who wants to establish a core group of 18-20 players by the end of the England series, Dinesh Karthik as a “enforcer” provides up a lot of choices heading into the T20 World Cup. To be a part of the World T20 set-up, Dravid will need to do more than just “knock on the door.” Anyone who wants to be a part of the 15-man squad will have to “knock it down.”

“It was great to see Karthik take the initiative and perform what he was assigned. After the five-match series against South Africa ended in a 2-2 draw, Dravid commented, “That was good and it offers up a lot more alternatives for us going forward.”

“He was picked for what he has been doing exceptionally well for the last two or three years (in the IPL) and kind of indicated in the sense that it almost came together in the game at Rajkot,” Dravid said of the Tamil Nadu dasher’s 27-ball-55, which was instrumental in India regaining parity in the series.

Karthik and Hardik Pandya, according to Dravid, are the two “enforcers” in the death overs

“We needed that big performance in the last five overs to get to par, and he and Hardik batted brilliantly.” At the end of the day, both of them are enforcers for us,” Dravid explained Karthik’s role in the team.

Karthik has built a strong case for himself heading into the T20 World Cup, according to the coach.

“I was telling the lads that you have to start beating the door down, not just knocking it down,” Dravid said. “An innings like that (Rajkot’s fifty) suggests he is knocking extremely hard.”
