Under the coaching of legendary cricketer Rahul Dravid, Team India won the T20 World Cup 2024 by defeating South Africa by seven runs in the final against South Africa in Barbados.

Meanwhile, former great Sunil Gavaskar reckoned that Dravid should be honoured with the Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian award in the country.

According to Gavaskar, Dravid should be conferred with the award for his overall contribution to Indian cricket, which includes his achievements as a player and captain of the team.

“It would be apt if the Government of India honours Dravid with the Bharat Ratna, for that’s what he has truly been. Great player and captain of the country with famous away series wins in the West Indies when wins there really meant something and also win in England being only among the three Indian captains to have won a Test match series there, a wonderful talent groomer in his earlier role of the chairman of the National Cricket Academy and then as coach of the senior team,” said Gavaskar.
