Ricky Ponting: Rahul Dravid has taken over as the new coach of the Indian cricket team. Under his guidance, Team India also won the first match. Under his supervision for the next two years now, Team India will strive to reach new heights. It is learned that Dravid was appointed after the end of Ravi Shastri’s tenure. Earlier, India coach Ricky Ponting was approached by an Indian coach. However, this was rejected by Ponting.
.Ponting is the legendary batsman who has twice brought the World Cup to Australia. Ponting has been the coach of Delhi Capitals in the IPL for the last few seasons. Under his guidance the team is doing well. Apart from this, Ponting is also an Australian team consultant. But it is not continuing right now. Only associated with Delhi Capitals. Ponting, however, gave these reasons for rejecting the India coach’s offer.
“The BCCI asked me to make him the coach of Team India but I had to turn it down, mainly because of lack of time,” Ponting said. Ponting said he did not want to be away from his family for 300 days. This is the same reason why he has not coached any national team. Ponting described this in the podcast ‘The Grade Cricketer’.
