WATCH: Rahul Dravid takes hilarious dig at his Head Coach stint; leaves everyone in splits

With India’s win at the T20 World Cup 2024, former India cricketer Rahul Dravid also ended his stint as the head coach. It is to be noted that under Rahul Dravid’s mentorship, Team India played three consecutive ICC finals, including the World Test Championship in 2023, the ODI World Cup in the same year and the T20 World Cup 2024.

The 51-year-old, who did not win an ICC title during his elaborated career, finally lifted the trophy as Men in Blue defeated South Africa by seven runs at the Kensington Oval in Barbados. After this much-needed win, Dravid expressed immense pride, hailing the team to adapt to the conditions brilliantly. Speaking on the sidelines of the T20 World Cup 2024 final, Dravid said, “I really have felt short of words over the last few hours. I just could not be more proud of this team, the way we had to fight difficult situations.”

The former India cricketer did not end here as he chose to focus on the future possibilities rather than speaking of enduring a disappointing first-round exit in 2007 ODI World Cup. “Firstly, there is no redemption. I am not one of those guys who thinks about redemption and those of things. There are a lot of other players I know who have been not able to win a trophy,” Dravid told PTI. 

Although, he hailed the journey of over two years which gave this fruitful result in Barbados on Saturday, during his interaction, Dravid also took a dig at his coaching stint. The 51-year-old, who now ends his stint as Head Coach of Team India, took a humorous take, acknowledging his departure. “I will be able to move on quickly from this win. Next week, I will be unemployed,” he said leaving everyone around him in splits.
