He credited the players for their dedication and hard work, emphasizing that their efforts made the achievement possible.

“As a player, I was not lucky enough to win a trophy but I gave my best and I was lucky enough to be given an opportunity to coach a team, I was lucky that this bunch of boys made it possible for me to be able to win this trophy. It is a great feeling, it is not like I was aiming for some redemption, it was the job I was doing and it has been a great journey,” Dravid said
