The second string Indian team will play six matches against Sri Lanka. While Shikhar Dhawan is the skipper of the side, Rahul Dravid is given the role of head coach for the tour.
As Ravi Shastri is in England with the main squad for the Test series, Dravid was asked to take up charge of the Lankan tour.
Sanju Samson has expressed his opinion to work with the former India player.
“Each and every individual in the India A side or the juniors going into the Indian team have been fortunate to go through a person called Rahul Dravid. We are very lucky to learn our cricket from him. I remember going to the Rajasthan Royals trials one day – I batted really well – and he came up to me and asked me a question ‘can you play for my team?’. So, that was the biggest moment of my life, and I can never forget that. That shows how great a human being he is, and I really enjoy his company,” said Samson speaking exclusively on STAR SPORTS’ SHOW FOLLOW THE BLUES.
