T20 WC Win for India, Not Emotional Send-Off

As the T20 World Cup final approaches, emotions are running high for Team India. Coach Rahul Dravid’s final match at the helm adds a layer of sentimentality. Social media has been flooded with the hashtag #DoItForDravid, urging the team to win the trophy as a tribute to the coach’s contributions. However, Dravid himself has downplayed this narrative, emphasizing the team’s primary objective – to win the World Cup.

In an interview with Star Sports, Dravid expressed his disapproval of the #DoItForDravid campaign. “It’s totally against my values,” he stated. “I don’t really believe in this ‘Do it for somebody.'” He compared the situation to the famous quote about climbing Mount Everest, “because it’s there.” Similarly, Dravid believes India’s desire to win the World Cup stems from the inherent value of the trophy, not a desire to honor any individual.

Ashwin Commends Dravid’s Leadership

Veteran spinner Ravichandran Ashwin took to social media platform ‘X’ to praise Dravid’s leadership and focus on the team. He lauded Dravid for rejecting the #DoItForDravid narrative, which Ashwin believes can be detrimental to a healthy team environment. “Narratives of building it up for someone in a team sport is the worst thing that can happen,” Ashwin wrote. He commended Dravid’s “classy manner” in rejecting the campaign and called upon the team for a final push, stating, “Let’s fight once more.”

While Dravid’s tenure is set to conclude after the T20 World Cup, his contributions to Indian cricket are undeniable. Under his leadership, India has reached the semi-finals of the 2022 T20 World Cup and has subsequently made it to three consecutive ICC event finals. However, a World Cup victory has remained elusive.

Focus on Teamwork for T20 World Cup Glory

The upcoming T20 World Cup final presents a golden opportunity for India to finally secure a World Cup win under Dravid’s guidance. While the #DoItForDravid campaign highlights the emotional significance of the match, both Dravid and Ashwin’s comments underscore the importance of prioritising team focus and execution. India will undoubtedly be aiming to put on a strong performance and emerge victorious, etching their names in cricketing history and bringing the coveted trophy home.

With South Africa putting up a strong showing to reach the final, India faces a formidable opponent. The team’s focus will be on executing their strategies flawlessly and emerging victorious. Whether they can finally clinch the World Cup title under Dravid’s leadership remains to be seen, but one thing is certain: Team India is determined to put on a show and make a strong push for glory.
