The global pandemic novel coronavirus outbreak has brought the world into a standstill where all sporting events across the globe either being cancelled or suspended. Amid all this, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has made sure that the experience and knowledge of Team India coaches - Ravi Shastri, Bharat Arun, Vikram Rathour and R. Sridhar is being used to help coaches at the National Cricket Academy (NCA).
While speaking to IANS on this decision, Saba Karim, the GM Cricket Operations has already said that the idea had come from NCA head Rahul Dravid's office only where they are searching for more knowledge and information.
"That is the whole idea of having Dravid on board. Since he is heading NCA, the brainstorming and initiation of such an idea comes from his office. It is good that all our national coaches are getting involved and this really augurs well for Indian cricket. Not just the coaches, but also the administrators need to be on one platform to overcome the huge challenge in front of us.”
"There has to be a smooth streamlining of the entire faculties from the national team to the U-19 level. There has to be better synergy and exchange of ideas so that all of us are moving towards the same direction," he further explained.
Since everyone is staying at home because of the lockdown and novel coronavirus, the knowledge of Shastri & Co. will be helpful for the youngsters as well. Even BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has already said that they are trying to revamp the NCA and making it the go-to-place for all budding cricketers as well. Moreover, former India player and one of the best in his time – Rahul Dravid is the head of NCA and it cannot be better than to get all the national team coaching staff to now interact with the NCA coaching staff and teach their tricks to help the budding cricketers.
