Rahul Dravid humorously remarked about being unemployed after India’s victory in the T20 World Cup, marking his last assignment as the head coach. Dravid, who captained the team during their early exit in the 2007 ICC World Cup in the West Indies, saw a full circle in his career with this triumph.

Known as “The Wall,” Dravid participated in three 50-over World Cups but never clinched an ICC title as a player. The T20 World Cup win thus stood out as a crowning achievement in his coaching career.

Seventeen years after their disappointing 2007 World Cup exit, Dravid finally experienced success with the Indian cricket team. Under his guidance, India edged out South Africa by seven runs in a thrilling final in Barbados to claim their second T20 World Cup title.

Dravid, in a lighthearted manner, acknowledged his upcoming unemployment, reflecting on his journey and contributions to Indian cricket. The win marked a significant milestone in his coaching tenure, which saw him lead India to three ICC finals in 12 months.

Reflecting on his tenure, Dravid expressed his ability to move on from the win, acknowledging that the T20 World Cup 2024 was his last assignment. After taking over from Ravi Shastri after the 2021 World Cup, Dravid led the team through a successful period, including winning the Asia Cup and reaching multiple finals.

Despite facing defeats to Australia in other ICC finals, his leadership saw India achieving a remarkable unbeaten run in the T20 World Cup, a first in history.

Dravid downplayed the idea of leaving a legacy, instead emphasizing his gratitude for working with a professional team and staff.

He credited the supportive environment and a bit of luck for the team’s success, expressing happiness for the team’s achievement and the joy it brought to Indian fans. As his coaching chapter closes, Dravid’s contributions and the recent T20 World Cup victory underscore his significant role in Indian cricket’s recent successes.
