“Thanks a lot…”Rahul Dravid savage reply to a reporter over a question

India’s head coach, Rahul Dravid, faced some uncomfortable memories during a press conference before the T20 World Cup 2024 game against Afghanistan. Dravid, known for his impressive playing career with the Indian team, has not performed well in Barbados in the past. When a journalist brought up his poor performance at that location, Dravid became visibly upset and reacted angrily to the question.

Dravid shared his thoughts with the reporter, explaining that he easily lets go of things and is focused on being a good coach, not dwelling on his past achievements as a player.

Reporter: “Rahul, you’ve played here before. Do you remember the not-so-good times from the 1997 Test?”

Dravid: “Wow, thanks for reminding me! But I also have some good memories from here too.”

Reporter: “That’s my question. An opportunity for you to create new and better memories tomorrow?”

Dravid: “Oh man! I’m not trying to create anything new, man!

Dravid visited Barbados in 1997 when India played against the West Indies. He scored 78 and 2, but the Indian team lost the Test match by 38 runs in Bridgetown. Now as the coach of the Indian team, the famous cricketer is focused on the current task and not on what happened over 25 years ago.

“I easily forget about things and focus on the present. It’s just how I am. I don’t dwell on the past. Instead, I concentrate on what’s happening now. I don’t worry about what happened in 1997 or any other year.

“If someone had said that winning this would mean we wouldn’t score over 80 but only 121, I would have been upset. But even if we win tomorrow’s game, the score will still show 80, no matter how much I wish it were different. I don’t think about getting even. I just let things go. I focus on what’s ahead, whether it’s good or bad.

“I don’t really see myself as a player these days. I just move forward. I’m focused on tomorrow’s game and trying to get a good result,” he explained at the press conference.
