Dravid as coach, Dhoni as mentor will take Team India to new heights – MSK Prasad

Former BCCI chief selector MSK Prasad feels that Rahul Dravid should be Team India’s new head coach. He feels MS Dhoni should be appointed as a mentor once Ravi Shastri tenure ends.

“Rahul as a coach, MS as a 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.

Shastri will leave his post after the T20 World Cup because his contract will end.

“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.
