With most of the international players taking part in IPL, Dravid is on a much needed break.
In recent videos and photos shared on social media, Dravid can be seen spending quality time n Maldives and he even undertook scuba diving.
Team India’s next assignment will be the World Test Championship final in June.
The Rohit Sharma-led side will meet Australia at the Oval from June 7-11 for their second consecutive appearance in a World Test Championship final. With injuries to key first team players like pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrahmiddle-order batter Shreyas Iyer and the main overseas match-winner Rishabh PantWell, there are a lot of issues that need to be addressed ahead of the big final.
The workload management aspect also needs to be looked at keeping the ODI World Cup in mind.
