Hi It was exceptional. We had toured for about two years (before the 2018 under-19 World Cup) with Rahul sir. He knew that he was different from us but he never forced us to be like him. Temperament is important but he never asked me to change anything, he used to tell me to play my natural game because he knew that if I play the powerplay overs, it becomes difficult to dismiss me,” Shaw said on Cricbuzz.
Dravid was also head coach of India team that won the under-19 World Cup in 2018 with Shaw as captain.The right-handed opener said that while Dravid ran a tight ship and insisted on discipline, he was also friendly.
“When there was Rahul sir, you had to be disciplined. There was a bit of a fear of him as well but off the field he was very friendly with us,” said Shaw.
