India’s loss in the World Test Championship against Australia was hard. It was not just a bad loss, but one that broke many people’s hearts. The loss was particularly painful as it continued India’s hiatus of 10 years of not winning the ICC trophy. India lost to Australia by 209 runs.

Rahul Dravid, one of the most celebrated and amazing batsmen India has seen in years, has been coaching the Indian team, but his efforts have not led to much success. His stint as the Under-19 cricket team coach was good and he did see some success, but that has not been replicated again. 

Rohit Sharma, the legendary cricketer who has successfully captained in IPL and been a good performer all throughout has just not been able to make a mark as a captain. There is no doubt that the shoes to fill were huge-following Dhoni and Kohli could not be easy, but it has to be done. 

The joint decisions of the captain and coach are important to map the rough terrain of the games. Rohit and Dravid’s decision to bench Ashwin, world’s No. 1 test bowler, in the WTC final was also questioned. 

Graeme Smith, former South Africa captain said, “The biggest challenge in India for a leader is balancing those squads, balancing your tour schedules, the different formats, and those are some of the biggest decisions that are coming ahead of Rahul and his selection team. What do those squads look like, how do they move those teams forward.”

BCCI also needs to look at its team selection and make changes that help break the successive loss streak of the Indian team.
