It is speculated that many important topics were also discussed.
Questions about coaching from Rahul Dravid
According to Cricbuzz’s report, this meeting at the hotel lasted about two hours. Dravid had reached the Hotel Marriott in Miami to meet Shah and this meeting. After that, Shah has also been seen at the stadium for the last two T20 games. Unfortunately, Team India lost this series with 2:3. West Indies won the T20 series against India after seven years. After this, many cricket pundits began to berate the management and Team India’s coach, Dravid. Many former cricketers, including Parthiv Patel and Venkatesh Prasad, were also unhappy with Dravid’s coaching. Meanwhile, the significance of this meeting becomes even more special.
What is the significance of this meeting?
See, a detailed account of what was discussed at that meeting hasn’t come out yet, but speculation has begun. Accordingly, this meeting may also be held on team selection issues. The Indian team has yet to be selected for the upcoming Asia Cup and ODI World Cup. The fitness of KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer remains an obstacle on this path. According to the reports, team selection is possible after the first T20 against Ireland, which will be played on August 18. In addition, the team’s recent performance, the coaching of Rahul Dravid and the team’s planning for the World Cup and Asian Cup will also be mentioned as important topics of this meeting.
Will there be major changes?
Many people are even wondering if there will be any changes in the Indian cricket team’s staff. Does a mentor etc. get a place? If you remember MS Dhoni was the mentor of Team India at T20 World Cup 2021. At the moment the whole matter is stuck due to injury of key players of Team India. Rahul and Iyer are in the NCA and a practice match has also been organized for them. The report is pending. To date, the NCA has not contacted the selectors or management of Team India in this regard. The selection may have to wait until the final report from KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer of NCA.
