Cricket India: Rebuilding for T20 World Cup, be patient, says Dravid

England defeat India by 10 wickets, set up T20 World Cup final with Pakistan

Team rebuilding for next T20 World Cup, we have got to be patient with youngsters, says Dravid


Pune: Head coach Rahul Dravid has called for patience as the Indian team goes through a rebuilding phase for the next cycle of the T20 World Cup and the youngsters in the side get some experience.

Dravid felt inexperience was one of the main reasons for India’s 16-run defeat to Sri Lanka in the second T20I here. The former India captain pointed out that while the visitors had a pretty sorted playing XI, the hosts fielded a completely different side than the one which played the T20 World Cup less than two months back.

“They (youngsters in the team) are very skilful, but as they are learning, it’s a tough (job). It’s not easy learning in international cricket and you have to learn on the job. So, we’ve got to have a little bit of patience with these guys,” Dravid said at the post-match press conference on Thursday.
