In my opinion, Rahul Dravid is India’s premier cricket analyst. With over 10,000 runs in both Tests and ODIs, as well as mentoring/coaching stints with Rajasthan Royals, Delhi Daredevils, India’s Under 19 team and India A, his perspective is invaluable.
Part 1 of the interview focuses on the evolution of Virat Kohli. Dravid has witnessed Kohli’s ascent closely, from his early days at RCB, to his current position as India captain. Dravid also talks about coaching in general, and how he would have approached the IPL if he was a young cricketer.
In Part 2, we ask Dravid about his favourite innings, and how it felt to bat with Sehwag – a man with a completely different personality and playing style! We also talk to Dravid about his multiple partnerships with Sachin Tendulkar.
