Rahul Dravid experienced disappointments in 2003 and 2007 while playing and captaining, and he has recently suffered heartbreaks as a manager in the WTC Final in 2023 and World Cup Final.
India suffered a crushing defeat against Australia at the ICC World Cup 2023 Final score: 6 wickets loss. The Aussies won their sixth title, a record. After the World Cup Final, Rahul Dravid’s contract as head coach expired. Dravid hinted to uncertainty about his future in the post-match conference.
He stated that the World Cup schedule has been so hectic that he’s not had time to think about his role as a coach with Team India.
“I haven’t thought about it. I just finished a game. I don’t have time to think or reflect about this. When I have the time, I will. At the moment, I am completely focused on my campaign. I was completely focused on the World Cup and nothing else. “I haven’t thought about the future.” Dravid says
Rahul Dravid has yet to overcome his disappointment. He’s already suffered heartbreaks as a World Cup player in 2003, as a World Cup captain in 2007, and most recently, as a World Test Championship 2023 Final coach and in the 2023 World Cup Final.
Dravid may continue to coach the Indian team despite these setbacks. This is subject to final discussions with the Board of Control for Cricket in India.
Rahul Dravid: Indian dressing room full of disappointment
Dravid said that the Indian dressing-room was full of disappointment.
“The boys were disappointed. There were many emotions in the dressing-room. It was difficult to see them in their new roles as coaches. I know them well, having spent so much time with each of them. It was difficult. I’m confident that the sun will rise tomorrow morning and we will continue. It’s what sportsmen do. You will cherish the highs of these games.” He said.
Team India, despite a dominant performance during the World Cup, faltered in the final against Australia. Australia’s all-round performance was rewarded with a six-wicket win as they chased a 240-run target. This win marked Australia’s sixth ODI World Cup.
