Relationship with players is most important for a coach
Former New Zealand captain and all-rounder Dion Nash believes that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has made a smart choice, appointing Dravid as the head coach in place of Ravi Shastri. He said that Dravid will prove to be a great coach as he is a thorough professional. However when it comes to international teams, timing and relationships with the players are also important. By timing I mean the team needs to have some wins under their belt to get into the right groove..Nash told Zee News English in an exclusive interview. Prior to Rahul Dravid, his former Indian teammate Anil Kumble was in charge of the team, but was inadvertently sidelined as head coach after a rift with skipper Virat Kohli. Nash believes that relationships with players are the most important thing for a coach.
Nash told the specialty of the coach (Rahul Dravid will be the best)
Nash realized that you can have the best coach in the world but if he doesn’t see the players face to face, he will never be successful. Dravid will step into a successful unit and will be expected to bring in more wins and trophies. The former Kiwi pacer has fought his way into the field with Dravid during his playing days, especially in the late 90s. Nash was one of the integral part of the team when Dravid scored 190 against New Zealand in Hamilton in 1999. It’s about coaching time. If Dravid can win some big series in a row, his position will be secure. (Rahul Dravid will be the best)
