'I could be coach of a Ranji side'

Mumbai, Sep 15: Former India captain Rahul Dravid has hinted at coaching a state side in the Ranji Trophy first before thinking of working with the national team.

Full text of Dravid's lecture

Since retiring from international cricket, Dravid has mentored IPL side Rajasthan Royals besides enjoying his stints in TV commentary for various India series.

On Friday evening (September 12), Dravid, who delivered the annual Dilip Sardesai Memorial Lecture at the Cricket Club of India (CCI) in Mumbai, interacted with the audience where he was asked about coaching the Indian team.

When queried whether he sees himself as a future India coach, Dravid was quoted as saying by "DNA", "I think there is a time and place for everything. I have enjoyed the media side of what I have done. I don't think it's easy. I have enjoyed the mentorship thing that I do with Rajasthan Royals for two months."

"It just fits into where my life is at the moment. That's just being an honest answer, having two young kids. It's just a question of balancing how your life is. But yeah, I would love at some stage work with young cricketers. Whether that's with the Indian coach, I don't know. It could be as a coach of a Ranji (Trophy) team at some stage. There is time and place for everything," he added.

To start with, Dravid might have an option of coaching his state side Karnataka. But we have to wait and see when it will materialise.
