We Have This Man To Thank For India’s Young Talent

We’re still hungover from yesterday’s events at the Gabba. On a ground that is Australia’s fortress, India pulled off the improbable to register a test series win for the ages.

The highlight of this series was India’s youngsters punching above their weight and showing their mettle. With so many key players lost to injury, the team management was compelled to throw a lot of newcomers into the deep end. The series saw as many as five debutants for India, and none disappointed.

This surplus of young talent, however, isn’t something that was achieved overnight. It is the result of an elaborate process put in place by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), and one man has played a key role in it all. Rahul Dravid has been instrumental in shaping the careers of young cricketers and grooming them for the big stage.

After drawing curtains to a glittering international career in 2012, the legendary batsman has remained deeply involved in Indian cricket. He enjoyed an immensely fruitful stint as the coach of India’s under-19 and A teams, and now helms the National Cricket Academy (NCA). It would be unfair to credit Dravid alone for the supply chain of young cricketers that India enjoys today. Indian cricket, after all, has an admirable structure for domestic cricket that regularly throws up new talent. Dravid, however, has been responsible for the effective transition of these talents from domestic to international cricket. All of the young heroes of the Australia series, be it Rishabh Pant, Shubman Gill, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur or Mohammed Siraj, have graduated from Dravid’s finishing school.

After the series win yesterday, Indian fans took to Twitter to express their gratitude to Dravid..

In the new season of The Viral Fever’s (TVF) college drama Girls Hostel, the medical versus dental wars continue between the girls.

The dental girls have been moved to a newer, smaller hostel where they’re facing a water crisis and other problems. This new season, unlike the first, focuses on more mature topics such as college politics, elections, eve teasing and more.
