Indian head coach Rahul Dravid emotionally congratulated pacer Akash Deep on receiving his debut Test cap, expressing joy in witnessing the fulfillment of his dream.

Indian head coach Rahul Dravid awarded pacer Akash Deep his debut Test cap before the fourth India vs. England Test in Ranchi. In a heartfelt team huddle captured by BCCI, Dravid conveyed the team’s joy in realizing the Bengal pacer’s dream.

Expressing regrets for the absence of Akash Deep’s father and elder brother, Dravid wished him well and encouraged him to relish the moment and his career ahead. Presenting him with cap no. 1313, the coach conveyed the team’s happiness in witnessing Deep’s dream come true.

“It’s good to have your family here. Your father and elder brother aren’t here, but I hope wherever they are they will be showering their blessings on you. Our team here is wishing you the best. Enjoy this moment. You have worked hard to reach here. We are very happy to be here to see your dream come true. Enjoy these five days and your career, with happiness presenting cap no. 1313, Akash Deep,” Dravid was heard saying.

Dravid also highlighted Akash’s journey from Baddi to Delhi, then Bengal, overcoming obstacles to pursue cricket professionally.

When talking to JioCinema after, Akash Deep also expressed his joy at realizing his dream of playing for India. He emphasized the responsibility that comes with representing his country, particularly in a crucial match.

After his stellar performance in claiming key wickets, India relies on him to deliver once more in the third session, with England’s Root and Foakes posing a threat after staging a significant partnership.
