Dravid plays down Virat’s rest rumours

New Delhi:

Indian junior and ‘A’ team coach Rahul Dravid dismissed reports of Virat Kohli being denied rest during the Test series against Sri Lanka next month, saying all such news is nothing but a ‘needless controversy’.

When quizzed if Kohli needs a mini break as he has been playing continuously in nearly all formats of the game from last one year in the national capital, Dravid said, “everyone needs rest. Virat Kohli will get rest when he wants.”

Speaking at a felicitation programme for women cricketers, he said, “Rotations are needed. There are a lot of matches being played, so you need to rotate the players. I think the management is taking right decision.”

The former Indian captain also maintained a positive stance on the introduction of the nine-team Test championship and a 13-team One-Day International league.
