One of the greatest players of world cricket, Rahul Dravid has started his new role as team India coach pretty successfully. Rahul who is keen to implement a rotation policy based on the workload has restarted the culture which has been stopped long back.
In India, there was a tradition of welcoming debutants into the playing XI through the former cricket players. It was stopped when MS Dhoni took the reins of the Indian cricket team.
Now, Rahul has started that culture with the second T20I. Former Indian player Ajit Agarkar welcomed Harshal Patel into the playing XI by handing over the cap.
During the commentary, Legend Sunil Gavaskar said that the trend of handing over the caps to the debutant was stopped during Dhoni’s tenure and it was followed by Shastri-Kohli.
