He is the ‘The Wall’, ‘Mr. Dependable’, and The Gentleman! We are referring to none other than the legendary batsman Rahul Dravid. After serving the Indian National Cricket Team, the legendary batsman took up the responsibility to shape the future of Indian cricket. Despite being offered the position of National Coach for the senior cricket team, Dravid told he would coach the U-19 cricket team. He is the coach of the India cricket team that won the 2018 U-19 Cricket World.
Upon winning the world cup, the BCCI announced Rs 50 Lakhs to Dravid, Rs 30 Lakhs to every player and Rs 20 lakhs to the supporting staff. Reportedly Rahul Dravid has expressed his displeasure at the disparity between the cash prize of the players, his support staff and himself.
Rahul Dravid has asked the BCCI not to discriminate among the players, coach and the supporting staff. ‘The world cup win is a complete team effort of the players, coach and the support staff. The support staff we had are great. I cannot take names. But I everyone put a great effort,’ said Dravid soon after the final.
Dravid’s comments over the disparity stand as a testimony for his selflessness and sincerity towards the game
