The Brains

  • Rahul Dravid ( head coach)
  • Paras Mhambrey (bowling)
  • Vikram Rathour (batting)
  • T Dilip (fielding)
  • Hari Mohan (video analyst)

The game is played by the 11 players on the middle, but before that happens, important team meeting take place. The plans are normally laid by Rahul Dravid along with other coaches in the team and the captain. The biggest problem or the headache Dravid will have is the finalising the Playing XI for different matches. Also, this is the first ICC event under Dravid, and he will be keen to help India get back the title, which they last won in 2007.

He has important men to assist in different departments of the game. As for batting, it is Vikram Rathour. He will be keeping a close eye on India batters and help them come up with solutions to their problems.

In the bowling department, Mhambrey has his task cut out. The bowlers have come under scrutiny, especially in the death. He must chart out plans and strategy for his bowlers to execute on the day. As for the fielding drills during training and before the game, Dilip shoulders responsibility. He was only part of the Indian team set up after Dravid joined as head coach.
