Advertisement
#1
Team India issued a statement post their humiliating drubbing in Adelaide refuting retirement reports of Rahul Dravid: Not retiring just yetDravid and any of the other senior players.


Indian team media manager GS Walia read out the statement in the post-match press conference that said - "The team takes note of the stories in the media suggesting the imminent retirement of a member of the India team. We would like to clarify that situation by stating categorically that these are not correct and are baseless. There will be no further questions on this."

Stand-in-captain Virender Sehwag who was also part of the post-match briefing rejected the reports. “I don't think there is a need for retirement of any player in this team and they will take their call when they're needed and when they think their time is up.” said Sehwag.

On Friday, news agency PTI had reported that Dravid was likely to retire and that he was believed to have told some of his teammates that he had decided to hang his boots. The report was picked up by almost all Indian media outlets and quickly fuelled the rumours.

Rahul Dravid has said that he has not made a decision on whether to retire or not. There had been reports in the media about Dravid's imminent retirement after the defeat in Adelaide, which prompted the Indian team management to issue a statement saying that none of the senior players were about to quit. That point was reiterated by the acting captain Virender Sehwag, and now Dravid has said there was no need to make decisions immediately.

"I am definitely nearer the end than the beginning, there is no doubt about that," Dravid told Channel Nine. "I haven't made any decision and there is no need to make any decisions now, we're not playing another Test match for seven to eight months so we'll see how it pans out. At my stage in my career it's always about taking it a series at a time and not looking too far ahead, so we'll see what happens."
