Rahul Dravid is considered one of the legendary cricketers in Indian cricket. Famously known as The Wall, he gave the bowlers a tough time, owing to his robust defensive techniques. He retired from the sport in 2012 and his since been coaching at the National Cricket Academy.
Former Indian batsman, Rahul Dravid was one of the most prolific batsmen to have ever played the sport. Nicknamed 'The Wall', he was indeed no less than an excellent barrier for any bowler, as his unique defensive skills gave a tough time to even the best bowlers in the world.
It was in 2012 when he had announced his retirement from international cricket. Since then, he has been involved in other cricketing duties with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). He currently happens to be a coach at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru.
Meanwhile, an old footage of him has recently surfaced on social media, where he can be seen talking about his post-retirement plans at a relatively younger age of his career. Notably, he talks about doing commentary but is unsure if he has the proper skills for that, or even coaching.
"I don't know. I haven't decided at all, actually. I have got a job and I world with India Cements in Madras. Maybe, I could continue working with them or get into commentating. It looks easy, sitting in an AC room. But, I haven't decided yet and I will look as it comes," he said.
"I would love to stay involved with cricket. I don't know how good a coach I am, whether I have skills for that, or commentating, writing, or being involved in cricket. But, along the line, I would like to sort of develop some of these skills and love to stay involved in the game. It's my life and means everything to me. The longer I can stay involved, the better it is for me," he added.
Well, although he is not a commentator yet, he is certainly doing a fine job as a coach, as he has groomed some of the top young players, who are genuine prospects for Team India in the longer run. He also coached the Indian side to win the 2018 ICC U-19 World Cup.
