Srinagar: Former Team India cricketer Ajay Jadeja has said that Team India skipper Rohit Sharma and Coach Rahul Dravid need to develop coordination between them.
He said that coach and captain should be on same page while speaking with press and should also should take team members on board.
“You have to continue the process. If you keep chopping and changing after every result, the confusion will be there, which is quite an old thing with Indian cricket. That can be avoided. I know there will be coordination between the captain and coach, but it’s important to have that even in front of the press,” Jadeja said on Cricbuzz.
“It isn’t as if we weren’t the captain or we didn’t do press conferences. Sometimes, you have to say certain things in press conference because they might be important. But your team knows why exactly it was said. Your internal conversations with the team should be strong, and there should be no need to justify those things in front of the press,” Jadeja said.
“Wins and losses are part of the game, but there shouldn’t be any confusion over team combinations. There shouldn’t be statements about “trying out things” and other similar remarks. You need to understand that these are players and they have families. When they read them… such things do pop up at a certain point of time. In front of media, both captains and coach should be consistent with their statements. Inside, you can debate as much as you want,” said the former India star.
