Trained Under ‘The Wall’: Dravid’s Boys Rule IPL 2020
Developing an entire generation of young cricketers of this country into world-class players - IPL 2020 and the Dravid Effect.
The young guns of Rajasthan Royals chased down Kings XI Punjab’s massive total of 224 ( not forgetting Rahul Tewatia’s 5 sixes in the 18th over). Sanju Samson’s strike of 32 balls 74 (a four and Nine Sixes) made CSK suffer. Devdutt Padikkal’s three fifties out of his four innings made Brad Hogg remark as the best batting performance he’s ever seen, and this list of exciting and sometimes nail-biting moments from the 13th edition of the Indian premier league goes on.
What's common between Shaw, Mayank, Iyer, Pant, Padikkal, Samson, Gill, Saini, Nagarkoti, Ishan Kishan? All trained under one and only Rahul Dravid. #IPL2020

Rahul Dravid, a great batsman of his era, currently heads the National Cricket Association (NCA). As a head coach, he has nurtured both India A and Under-19 teams.
He has even been the head coach for the two IPL franchise, Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Daredevils ( now Delhi Capitals). At a webinar hosted by the Deccan Herald, Dravid spoke how IPL plays a significant role in bringing out young talents from across the country, turning the contest as an excellent showcase of fresh skills and a fearless challenge while they play alongside the big names in international cricket.
“The fact of the matter is none of the domestic sport actually generate any revenue, in fact, it costs a lot of money to hold domestic events. So if you want to give young boys and girls, the opportunity to play, then you must give them opportunities to express their talent.” Dravid spoke on IPL: as a big revenue generator.
