DVD1After former Australian captain Ricky Ponting, India’s batting legend Sunil Gavaskar has now backed Rahul Dravid as the next Indian cricket team coach, saying the former India captain is best suited for the job.

“I have been saying that for long. Every player needs a cooling period (after retirement) and it seems Rahul Dravid has served his cooling period,” Gavaskar said.

“My honest advise to BCCI is that in case they are looking for a change there is no one better than Rahul Dravid,” he was quoted as saying by ‘NDTV’.

In the past as well, Gavaskar has vouched for Dravid and suggested his name for the top job after the sacking of Duncan Fletcher.

Dravid is currently mentoring IPL side Delhi Daredevils.
