Rahul Dravid not hurt by Saha’s revelation of their personal conversation

Rahul Dravid not hurt by Saha's revelation of their personal conversation

India’s head coach, Rahul Dravid, said he is not “hurt” that veteran keeper Wriddhiman Saha revealed a highly classified conversation about his future, but he also wanted to give the Bengal wicketkeeper clarity about his position in the team. Wriddhiman Saha told the media that during a private conversation after the South Africa series, head coach Dravid asked him to consider retirement.

The news: The Indian coach stated that he will continue to have such conversations with players whether or not they agree with the content of the conversation.

  • Dravid also said, “Actually, I’m not hurt at all. I have a great deal of admiration for Wriddhi and his accomplishments, as well as his contribution to Indian cricket. That’s where my conversation began. I believe he deserved to be honest and forthright.”
  • He further stated, “It’s about the conversations I have with players all the time. I don’t expect players to agree with everything I say about them all of the time. That is not the case. You can have difficult conversations with the players, but that doesn’t mean you should sweep them under the rug and avoid having them.”
  • Dravid stated that his philosophy is to consult with players even before selecting a starting XI. “I always believe in having those discussions before selecting a starting XI and being open to questions such as why they are not playing. It’s normal for players to be upset and hurt.”
  • Dravid also stated that the reason for speaking with Saha was because Rishabh Pant has already established himself as the new No.1 keeper and the Bengal player would not have had any opportunities.
