New Delhi, Nov 18::After a varying performance in the T20I World Cup, team India is all set to face Newzealand in a 3 match T20 series. All the eyes will be on Rohit Sharma and Former Indian Batsman Rahul Dravid as the duo have taken up the skipper and the head coach’s position respectively, ahead of the series.

Sharma and Dravid addressed a press meet ahead of the series where both seemed to maintain calm and had no aggressive plans for coming days.

“My job at the moment is to sit back and observe how the team runs. Every team has a different environment. There’s no rush.” said Dravid in his opening statement.

In his two-year term, starting this Wednesday, Dravid will be coaching team India for 3 ICC championships across 3 formats.

People also have high hopes from the new skipper in the upcoming series against Newzealand, as the 34-year-old has captained India’s T20I team 19 times out of which he has registered fifteen wins and four defeats.

“I think it is an important aspect of the format where people have that assurance of going in and taking those chances in the middle. If it comes off, it comes off, if it doesn’t then what happens? That’s where both of us will have to play a huge role in terms of giving that individual an assurance, you know, (of) going out and expressing himself,” the skipper said in the press conference, on being asked about rebuilding the team.
