On the question of feeding the two teams, Rahul Dravid said – it is not a long-term solution

Former India captain Rahul Dravid has been named India’s head coach on a tour of Sri Lanka. BCCI has sent another team instead of the regular team for the tour of Sri Lanka. Dravid expressed his views on this. The Indian team will play a limited-overs tour of Sri Lanka. The team, led by Shikhar Dhawan, does not have many senior players in India, including Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Because the main team is against England
He is in England to play a five-match Test series.

Rahul Dravid told Virtual Meeting that there is a unique situation due to travel restriction and cornering. It is difficult to estimate right now because of Covid 19. Traveling between countries can be done in a short period of time, he said. Is this a long-term solution? I’m not sure. For this we need to talk to other boards, sponsors, media rights and stakeholders. He said it takes a little bit of pressure from players who play in all formats. Because of the constant constraints it is becoming increasingly difficult for them.

Dravid said at a press conference before the team’s departure that not all youngsters selected in the limited overs series against Sri Lanka will be allowed to play. The less experienced team will tour Sri Lanka under the leadership of Shikhar Dhawan. Six of these players never played an international match. I think it is unrealistic to expect us on this short tour, everyone is given the opportunity to have three T20 matches and three one-day matches. There will also be selectors. The series against Sri Lanka will begin with the ODI series from July 13 and the T20s from July 21.
