New Delhi: The Indian team is going to face New Zealand in the three-match T20 series from Wednesday. Before this series, Team India’s vice-captain KL Rahul has given a big statement regarding the captaincy of Rohit Sharma. KL Rahul is excited about playing alongside Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid in the series against New Zealand and says head coach Dravid is known for his focus on good ‘team culture’ while Rohit is a skilled strategist.
Players happy with the arrival of Rahul Dravid
With this series, a new era of Indian cricket is also being ushered in. After the T20 World Cup, the tenure of head coach Ravi Shastri came to an end while Virat Kohli decided to step down from the captaincy of the T20 team. The next World Cup is only 12 months away and Rahul said that the team management will soon decide what can be the best in this format. He said, ‘I am very fortunate to have known Rahul Dravid for a long time. Right from the beginning of my career, I have understood the game better by following his advice and tried to hone myself in the art of batting. He has helped all of us a lot in Karnataka.
He said, ‘As a coach, he has been with all the young players. His coming as head coach is an opportunity to learn a lot from him. We all know what a big name he is and what he has done for the country. Rahul said, ‘I have played a few matches for India A and had a brief conversation with them before coming here for practice. He has been an advocate of good team culture and focuses on creating such an environment that we can be better as cricketers and as human beings.
Said this thing about Rohit
Regarding Rohit, he said, ‘We have seen him in the IPL and his statistics say everything. He has a great understanding of the game and is a skilled strategist. This is the reason why he could achieve so much as a captain. He said, ‘He will bring a stop in the dressing room. It will be interesting to know what his goals are for the team in the next few weeks. Decisions in team sports are taken collectively and the job of the leadership group is to ensure that everyone is aware of their role and feels safe in the team.
