There is a shelf life to captaincy in India: Dravid

Bangalore: Breaking his silence over his surprise resignation as India’s cricket captain, Rahul Dravid said on Monday that he was not enjoying the job after two years because “there is a shelf life to captaincy in India”.

The 34-year-old batsman, who has not said a word in public since his resignation said here that captaincy “takes a lot out of you”.

The thought of stepping down had crossed his mind after India’s early exit from the World Cup in the West Indies for which he felt responsible, Dravid said. “But I still felt that I had the strength and energy to do it then” in the hope that things could be turned around, he added. However, towards the end of the ODI series against England which ended this month, he had begun considering resignation. — PTI
