    He advocates equality in the squad

    BCCI had given a whopping Rs 5 cr as prize money

Rahul Dravid’s humility and commitment to equality were once again on display as the outgoing head coach of the Indian cricket team refused an additional Rs 2.5 crore bonus awarded by the BCCI following their T20 World Cup triumph in Barbados. Dravid’s decision ensured that all members of the senior men’s team’s support staff received equal bonus prizes.

The BCCI had announced a Rs 125 crore prize pool for Team India, encompassing players and support staff. While players and Dravid were set to receive Rs 5 crore each, support staff members like batting coach Vikram Rathour, bowling coach Paras Mhambrey, and fielding coach T Dilip were to receive Rs 2.5 crore each. 

This isn’t the first instance of Dravid’s selfless gestures. In 2018, after India clinched the U19 Men’s World Cup, the BCCI had allocated Rs 50 lakh to Dravid, Rs 20 lakh to his team, and Rs 30 lakh to the players. Dravid requested the board to distribute the prize money equally among the coaching staff, a request the board honored.

Dravid’s consistent advocacy for fairness and his efforts to recognize the contributions of all team members underline his dedication to equality and exemplify his exceptional leadership and integrity.
