Recently-retired Rahul Dravid indicated that he is open to the idea of coaching the Indian cricket team in future.
"Who knows someday in the future," Dravid answered when asked if he would be interested in taking up coaching responsibility of the Indian team in future. Though he refrained from making a commitment, Dravid pointed out his stint with Rajasthan Royals in this year's IPL when he was the captain- cum-mentor of the side.
"I don't know. Lot of things that I have not decided on. I don't have the level 1, 2, 3 certificates that people want sometimes. It was part of my role with Rajasthan Royals this year. It was little more than leadership, I was involved in the tactical and coaching side of it... Enjoyed doing that," he added.
Dravid, a true gentleman of the game, revealed that he has lost his cool on a couple of occasions in the course of his glorious 16-year-international career. "In the privacy of the dressing room, I have let myself go, throwing a few bats. I don't get angry very often but there have been times when I have been frustrated with myself, maybe after playing a bad shot, after getting out, I have done some damage to some equipments of mine.
"Once or twice in the course of 20 years, I think you can allow me that at least." For someone who has played countless match-winning knocks at the highest level, it is difficult to pinpoint one, and Dravid rated his double century in the 2003 Adelaide Test against Australia as one his best innings.
"In terms of control and just the way I have played through the innings, I think it was one of the best constructed innings. Also considering that Australia had scored over 550 runs. But frankly speaking, it was a good batting wicket," he told 'CNN-IBN'.
