Ex-Pakistan cricketer Basit Ali harshly criticizes Team India head coach Rahul Dravid, describing him as utterly ineffective in his coaching role.

During a scathing critique of Team India's head coach Rahul Dravid's tactics in the ongoing World Test Championship (WTC) final against Australia at the Oval, former Pakistan cricketer Basit Ali expressed his disapproval. Ali, speaking on his YouTube channel, highlighted the mistakes he believed Dravid made as a coach and claimed that, apart from Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli, and Ravindra Jadeja, the Indian players seemed fatigued.

Although Ali admitted to being a devoted fan of Rahul Dravid as a player and recognizing his legendary status, he expressed his disappointment with Dravid's coaching abilities, labeling him as completely ineffective in that role.

Ali criticized the decision to prepare turning pitches in India, contrasting it with the bouncy pitches encountered by the Indian team during their tour of Australia. He questioned Dravid's thinking process and humorously commented on his decision-making by stating that Dravid seemed to be hiding behind mountains when intelligence was being distributed by the higher power.

Australia managed to extend their lead to 296 runs against India and tightened their grip on the WTC final after an enthralling three days at the Oval. India, struggling, was eventually bowled out for 296 before tea, while Australia added 123 more runs to their already substantial first-innings lead of 173 by stumps.

Ali expressed the belief that only a miracle could save India from losing the match, criticizing India's decision to bowl first and their bowling performance, which he compared to the style seen in the Indian Premier League (IPL). He noted that during the 120 overs that India fielded, only Rahane, Kohli, and Jadeja appeared fit, while the rest of the team seemed fatigued.

It's important to note that these statements reflect Basit Ali's opinions and criticisms and may not represent the views of all cricket fans or experts.
