MSK Prasad wants Rahul Dravid to take over as India coach
The hunt for the new India coach has begun after current coach Ravi Shastri hinted he won’t be extending his contract after his term comes to an end after the T20 World Cup. Names of several former cricketers, including Anil Kumble and Virender Sehwag, are doing rounds but among all, Rahul Dravid’s name has created the most hype.
Former BCCI selector MSK Prasad wants Rahul Dravid to become the India coach after Ravi Shastri. In addition, he wants MS Dhoni to be the mentor of the team. Prasad feels that Dravid has worked with most of the youngsters during his stint as India A coach and his presence will create a calm environment in the dressing room.

“Rahul as a coach, MS as mentor is going to be a boon for Indian cricket. Both are cool and calm customers and one person is very studious and hard-working,” Prasad said on Sports Tak.
“More importantly, the number of players that are evolving right now have been groomed by Rahul, who was India A coach also. So it is some wonderful planning that is happening. I will be very disappointed if Rahul is not going to be the coach and MS is not a mentor post this management era,” Prasad added.
Rahul Dravid is credited for creating a strong bench strength for India thus the fans and many experts are in favour of Dravid taking over the responsibility. Meanwhile, MS Dhoni is one of the most successful India skippers and will mentor India in the T20 World Cup. Prasad said the Dhoni-Dravid combo will add value to Team India.
“In my heart, I had this feeling. I was challenged recently by my colleagues that definitely post Ravi bhai’s era, MS has to come into the role of a mentor and Rahul Dravid as a coach,” said MSK Prasad.
“These were the discussions I had with my fellow commentators while I was doing commentary during the IPL. I had a feeling that Rahul, being the studious person that he is, will add value to Team India post-Ravi bhai’s era,” said Prasad.
