The 2007 ODI World Cup was very disappointing for India. Team India had to be out of the tournament in the first round itself. Fans had high hopes from the team led by Rahul Dravid, but India’s journey was reduced to just 3 matches. India had lost to Bangladesh in their first match. India beat Bermuda by a huge margin of 257 runs in the second match. At the same time, the team was out after losing to Sri Lanka in the third match.
Irfan Pathan revealed about the World Cup
Like millions of fans, Indian players were also upset with the results but Dravid ensured that no one was negatively affected. Speaking to Star Sports, former India legend Irfan Pathan has revealed that Dravid took him and MS Dhoni to show a film after the humiliating World Cup defeat, which inspired the players to come back.
Irfan said that Rahul Dravid believes in clear and clear communication. Even when he was the captain of the Indian cricket team… even at that time, he was very outspoken with any young player. If anyone had any kind of problem, he could go to them and talk openly.
‘We are all upset, let’s go to the movies’
He said that I remember a very short incident from the 2007 World Cup in the West Indies. He came up to me and MS Dhoni and said, ‘Look we are all upset. Let’s go to see the movie’. We went to see the movie and then he said, ‘Look, yes we lost the World Cup. We all wanted to do something. But this is not the end. Life is huge. We will come back tomorrow’.
‘Dravid always wants to have a positive attitude’
Irfan further said that Dravid is such a person. He always wants to keep the positive thinking of the cricketers. If someone unfortunately gets out of form in Sri Lanka… if that happens, he will be the first person to guide him and give him a confidence boost. Let us inform that Dravid has gone with Team India on the tour of Sri Lanka as head coach. The command of the team is in the hands of Shikhar Dhawan. The limited overs series of both the teams will start from July 13.
