Rahul Dravid is having a hard time as a coach in the ongoing Asia Cup 2022, with the Indian team facing two back-to-back defeats against Pakistan and Afghanistan. The defending champions have been eliminated from the tournament after some below-par display in the Super 4 stage.
After thumping Pakistan and Hong Kong in the two opening contests, the team went down in the second round.
First, the Babar Azam-led team got better of them by 5 wickets at the Dubai International Stadium, and then Lanka humiliated them by 6 wickets at the same venue.
The fans have taken the beating lightly with ongoing experiments by Rahul and Rohit coming under the scanner.
Here is how fans reacted to India’s failure.
“Rahul Dravid needs a guy who he can easily control. Hence, KL is the captain and not Hardik! You will never see Hardik Pandya becoming white-ball skip as long as Dravid is there,” one of the fans wrote.
“Dear Rahul Dravid. Fuck stop doing permutations and combinations with the Indian cricket team. If not then please try ” aala ghoda , tala pahije ki hatoda” maga magi kara.”
“I can see sweat and stress on Rahul Dravid’s face, poor selection costing them early elimination. You can’t blame top order when you don’t select bowlers like Siraj and Shami.”
“Buck stops at Rohit Sharma & Rahul Dravid doors. Pathetic captaincy & team management. One hopes and prays they will pull up their game before the T20 World Cup.”
