Jaipur: Rahul Dravid, the Rajasthan Royals captain, has said that he is unsure about his role in the future and he's willing to step aside if the franchise finds a younger opener to partner Ajinkya Rahane next season. The Dravid-Rahane combine were the only pair to open in all matches this season, scoring 579 at 36.18.
"I really don't know (about my future). I will have to think it over. I would take a break and decide about my role. I will talk to my family and also the management of the Rajasthan Royals about my role and then I would decide," Dravid said. "My goal is to develop young players. Rahane did a great job with the opportunities we gave him. We identified a couple of players in the other franchises who did not get an opportunity to play.
"I don't know what the rules will be in terms of trades and swaps, but if we can get one or two young players then I can always step back and play a different role. We'd like a good young ambitious guy to come in and open the batting for us with Ajinkya next season," he said. "But if we can't find someone, then there's always the option of me playing, we'll see how it goes."
