Although India lost the T20I series against Sri Lanka 2-1, the team was lauded for their performances during the six white-ball games. Rahul Dravid, head coach for India, did a commendable job of leading a fairly inexperienced team and handled his troops well by remaining calm and composed all the time.

Ever since Dravid was announced as India’s coach for the Sri Lanka tour, speculations were doing rounds that the veteran will take over as a full-time India’s coach post Ravi Shastri’s term which ends after the T20 World Cup. 

When quizzed if he would like to don the coach’s hat for a full time, Dravid said he has still not though about taking up the coaching role for India full-time.

 “I have enjoyed this experience. Look, I have not thought anything far ahead,” Dravid said at the virtual post-match press conference after the third and final T20 International.

Dravid, who is also National Cricket Academy (NCA) Director, has worked with most of the youngsters during his stint as India A and Under 19 coach. The veteran said he enjoyed coaching the boys in Sri Lanka but added that taking a full-time role requires a lot of commitment and he is not sure if he can do the same. 

 “I have enjoyed the experience and I have loved working with these guys. It’s been great. And no, I haven’t given any other thought to anything else. There are (a) lot of challenges doing a full-time role, so I really don’t know,” quipped Dravid.
