Rahul Dravid, the recently retired test cricketer is a misfit for the post of Team India coach in the near future. Dravid lacks the killer instinct and his negative approach in batting failed to win matches for India in the past. He was removed from the one day side for his lethargic approach in batting. A coach has to imbibe many qualities. He has to be a mantor for the team, act with patience and perseverance, play a positive role in team building and work overtime to get best results. However, Dravid lacks all these qualities and never mingled with his players well. He was not in a position to take calculated risks when he was a captain and left the scene as captain rather abruptly. He may be a fighter in his own right but when it comes to teamwork he will be out of place with his narrow outlook. There is no chance of an Indian coach taking up the reins of Indian Team as the players wish to have a foreign coach. So the question of making Dravid as Team Coach is premature and not a wise move.
