Dravid in Warne’s Shoes







Pin It



Shane Warne and Rahul Dravid are a study in contrast. One is known for his flamboyant lifestyle, outspoken ways; the other is disciplined, soft-spoken and a perfect role model.

For Rajasthan Royals,IPL 5 could well be the transition from Warne’s leadership to Dravid’s captaincy. In fact, for a few youngsters who have known only Warne’s ways in the past four years, this could well be a culture shock.

Rajasthan Royals, once again, do not boast of too many big guns, at least in the T20 format. However, they have the habit of throwing up heroes. If Yusuf Pathan, Ravinder Jadeja and Shane Watson owe most of their fame to the Royals jersey in the inaugural edition of the IPL, Johan Botha’s prowess with the bat was a revelation last year. Warne had gone by his instincts in promoting Botha up the order, and it paid off handsomely.

As Dravid steps into the Australian spin legend’s shoes, he would be aware that he is inheriting an enviable legacy. For starters, Dravid would have to pick his men carefully and not go by reputation or past record. He has coach Monty Desai and technical director Zubin Bharucha to help him out, two men who have little to show apart from their IPL stint under Warne’s shadow.
