Rahul Dravid faces a harder challenge in South Africa Test: Sodhi, Reetinder Singh
According to Sodhi, the SA series will be a significant test for Team India. And an even bigger challenge for Rahul Dravid.
IND will face SA in a three-match Test series beginning December 26, and followed by the same number of ODIs. This would be head coach Rahul Dravid’s second assignment after leading the squad. To a fantastic victory over New Zealand in his first assignment. India has yet to win in the Rainbow nation, and the last time they visited, they lost the series 1-2.
In the same vein, veteran Indian cricketer Reetinder Singh Sodhi noted that, aside from the technical aspects of the game, Dravid faces another “huge obstacle.” There have been rumors that Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are feuding, and Sodhi believes that Dravid has a key role to play in this.
“He faces a greater challenge as a result of the current controversies, which is to re-energize the team.” Rahul Dravid will be put to the ultimate test. When it comes to Rohit and Virat, “Rahul would be addressing it first,” said Sodhi at India News, “to make them stand together and get the partnership back if there is a difference of opinion between them.”
Team India will have a significant challenge in South Africa Test
Dravid also has a huge role to play in preparing the hitters for the South African surface. According to the former cricketer. Sodhi believes that if Dravid’s India squad can defeat South Africa on their home turf, his respect as a coach will skyrocket.
“And how our batters excelled in South Africa on this tour. Which will be in different conditions.” South Africa has a strong bowling attack, thus Rahul Dravid will have to put in a lot of effort there. We performed admirably in the home series, but now comes the real test. If Rahul can lead his team to victory here, he will gain a lot of respect throughout the world as a player, and he will gain a lot of respect as a coach as well. So, certainly, it’ll be a tremendous test for Team India, and a huge one for Rahul Dravid,” Sodhi said.
