After the Rohit Sharma-led Team India clean-swept New Zealand within the three-match T20I sequence, the main target now shifts to a two-match Test sequence between the 2 sides. This will likely be Rahul Dravid’s first Test sequence as head coach of the Indian staff. With the T20I sequence achieved and dusted, Dravid will hope that his staff can replicate its T20 type within the upcoming Test sequence, beginning November 25. While Ajinkya Rahane will captain the staff within the first Test on the Green Park Stadium in Kanpur, common captain Virat Kohli will resume his duties within the second Test on the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

Speaking on the eve of the primary Test, former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan shared his views on the much-talked about partnership between new head coach Dravid and skipper Kohli, saying that the partnership will work wonders for Team India.

“This will be a new partnership between Rahul Dravid as well as Virat Kohli, the captain. Especially in the longer format, I don’t see any problem because Rahul Dravid is a kind of guy who likes to come into the system, he doesn’t change the system much,” Pathan stated throughout a dialogue on Star Sports’ ‘Follow The Blues’ present.

“Now obviously, he’s a very technical – tactical guy but he will not disrupt, he never used to disrupt even when he was captain, he always used to help boost the confidence of the player.”

As far as the longest format is concerned, Pathan said that there will be great a understanding between skipper Kohli and Dravid, which will help both senior and young players in the team.

“One factor is for certain, there will likely be a fantastic understanding and communication on this partnership, together with this youth gamers will likely be given as a lot significance as a senior participant will get within the staff,” he added.


Having played under Dravid’s captaincy, Irfan also highlighted that the former Indian skipper’s mindset will only help the young players getting in the team to adapt well too.

“I’m not saying that this didn’t occur earlier than however I’ve performed underneath Rahul Dravid and this was very noticeable, if there was any younger participant within the staff it was not arduous to assist them get into the staff and it was solely as a result of Rahul Dravid’s mentality,” he concluded.
