Rahul Dravid

After the Men in Blue were eliminated from the T20 World Cup in the semifinals, former India spinner Harbhajan Singh made the stunning recommendation that Rahul Dravid is fired from his role as head coach.

Since England smashed Rohit Sharma’s team in their semifinal match at Adelaide Oval on Thursday, criticism of Rahul Dravid’s strategies and player selection for the competition has risen, and Harbhajan Singh is among the first to advocate for his dismissal.

Rahul Dravid doesn’t appear to have a plan for India’s T20 team, says Harbhajan Singh, and he hasn’t played the game’s shortest format for a very long time. Because of this, he has to be replaced with a T20-experienced coach who knows how to get the greatest performance out of his team.

Even names for the Indian cricket team’s captain and a new coach were proposed by Harbhajan Singh. He believes that Hardik Pandya and Ashish Nehra should be named captain and coach right away so the pair has time to get ready for the upcoming T20 World Cup, which will be held in the USA and the West Indies in 2024.

Jos Buttler and his team delivered India a beating on Thursday, ending their T20 World Cup run with a comfortable 10-wicket victory in Adelaide’s batting-friendly conditions.

Following half-centuries from Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya, which helped India post 168/6 on the board, England’s openers Jos Buttler and Alex Hales ripped through the Indian spinners, finishing the run chase in just 16 overs. Jos Buttler was still unbeaten at 80 and Alex Hales was still alive at 86.

“It’s not just about the captain. You should bring someone who has just retired. Someone who understands T20 format. With all due respect to Rahul Dravid, he has been my colleague, i’ve played a lot of cricket with him, he is a great brain. If you don’t want to remove him as T20 head coach then help him,” Harbhajan told India Today.

“Bring someone who has just retired, someone like Ashish Nehra, who has got a great cricketing brain. Look what he has done at Gujarat Titans as a coach. I don’t mean just Ashish, it can be anyone who knows this format,” Harbhajan Singh added.

“It will also encourage the young guys with what Ashish will bring into the team. It could also be anyone, who just retired. For captaincy, Hardik Pandya is my choice. There is no better choice. He is the best player in the team and you need more people like him in the team,” Harbhajan Singh signed off.

Rahul Dravid received flak for his comments on Indian players competing in T20 tournaments outside of their own country, such as Australia’s Big Bash before Harbhajan Singh did.

“I mean, sure, there’s no doubt about it, the fact that England a lot of their players have come here and played in this tournament and it certainly showed. It’s tough. I think it’s very difficult for Indian cricket because a lot of these tournaments happen right at the peak of our season.

I think it’s a huge challenge for us. Yes, I think a lot of our boys maybe do miss out on the opportunities of playing in a lot of these leagues, but if you were to it’s really up to the BCCI to make that decision, but the thing is it’s right in the middle of our season, and with the kind of demand there would be for Indian players,” Rahul Dravid had said.

“If you allowed all the Indian players to play in these leagues, we would not have a domestic cricket. Our domestic cricket, our Ranji Trophy, would be finished, and that would mean Test cricket would be finished,” he further said.

A few days after Alex Hales, the England opener whose unbeaten 86-run innings eliminated India from the T20 World Cup aired his thoughts on the subject, Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid expressed his opposition to sending Indian players to play in foreign leagues.

Alex Hales contends that Indian athletes ought to compete in international competitions in order to obtain useful experience there.

“It’s a shame that Indian guys don’t get a chance to play in different leagues. It would be good for everyone, benefit them and benefit the leagues to have the best players in the world playing. [Adelaide] is a ground where I’ve played a lot of cricket in the past and enjoyed some success.

To have that sort of mindset before you head out there on a big occasion probably settles the nerves a bit and gives you confidence that you can put on a performance like that,” Alex Hales said in a conversation with Australian media outlet Sydney Morning Herald.

“Anytime you get the chance to play in foreign conditions makes you a better cricketer and makes you understand those conditions. Hopefully going forward, they get a chance to play in different leagues. It’s definitely helped me, for sure,” he asserted.
