New Delhi: Rajasthan Royals' Champions League Twenty20 2013 campaign is over, and so is Rahul Dravid's association with the team as a player. Now, big decisions need to be made about the future - one, about Dravid's replacement as team captain, and two, about Dravid's possible association with the team in another capacity.
Paddy Upton, chief coach of the team, said after the loss in the CLT20 final on Sunday (October 6) that the franchise would like to involve Dravid in the team's affairs, and that Shane Watson was his pick to replace Dravid as captain.
"Shane Watson has been there from the beginning and he epitomises the Rajasthan Royals spirit, who places the team's needs ahead of his own needs," said Upton. "He is incredibly good with the younger players and is someone who bridges all the gaps in terms of the diversity of players we have ... he is also someone who contributes and adds value on and off the field. Maybe there will be someone else, but he would be a candidate.
