Rahul Dravid
Rahul Dravid downplayed the #DoItForDravid trend, stating he wants to win the World Cup not for personal recognition but simply because achieving such a win is a challenge worth pursuing.

India head coach Rahul Dravid has been thrust into the spotlight once again ahead of the T20 World Cup final against South Africa. Despite never winning a World Cup as a player, Dravid led India’s U19 team to victory in 2018 and nearly achieved the same with the senior team at the 2023 ODI World Cup. However, he remains indifferent to the #DoItForDravid trend.

In an interview with Star Sports, Dravid expressed his desire to win the World Cup for the sake of the achievement itself. He drew a parallel with the famous Mount Everest quote, emphasizing that his motivation is intrinsic.

“I just want to play good cricket and yeah, doing it for someone is totally against who I am as a person and what I believe in. So, I don’t want to talk about it and discuss it. I don’t really believe in this ‘Do it for somebody’,” Dravid said.

“I love that quote about somebody asking somebody else, ‘Why do you want to climb Mount Everest?’ and he says ‘I want to climb Mount Everest because it’s there. I want to win this World Cup because it’s there. It’s not for anyone, it’s not for anybody, it’s just there to win,” he added.
