Rahul Dravid's two-year contract as India's head coach came to an end with a heartbreaking World Cup final defeat against Australia in Ahmedabad on Sunday. Dravid led India to two ICC tournament finals and one semi-final during his successful tenure, which ended in disappointing fashion. When questioned about his future as India's coach, the former captain and top batsman said that the issue has not come up for discussion with the BCCI and he needs time to consider how to move forward. What do they have for that?

Dravid said- “To be honest, I am not really someone who judges and analyzes myself. I'm really proud of the players I've worked with across all formats over the last two years, it's been a privilege.'

Elucidating his intention to become India's coach for the T20 World Cup to be held in the US and West Indies next year, Dravid said, “To be honest, I have not thought about it. I think all our drive, all our energy was focused on this match, focused on this tournament and focused up to here. And I haven't really given any thought to it or I don't have any plans, I don't have any plans for what's going to happen in the future."

Dravid also praised his captain Rohit Sharma for his commitment to the team, “He has been an exceptional leader. You know, Rohit has really led this team brilliantly. He has given a lot of his time and energy to the boys in the dressing room.

He said- “He has always been available for any of our conversations, any of our meetings. Sometimes a lot of planning is done, and a lot of strategies are adopted. He is always committed to those things. He has given a lot of his personal time and energy to this campaign.
