Former Indian coach Rahul Dravid was also a part of this interaction. PM Modi enquired about the prospects the team had in Olympics 2028. “Modiji, we cricketers, don’t get the opportunity to participate in the Olympics. But, now cricket is going to be part of the Olympics. It’s going to be big for the cricketers, the nation and the cricket board. We have to do well in the tournament. And to be with the other sportspersons, to learn from them, is a great thing. I think it’s a proud moment for cricket to be part of the Olympics. Youngsters like Rohit and Virat might be there to represent India in Olympics 2028,” Rahul said.

Dravid affirmed that India would be up to the challenge. “I am confident that the BCCI and the players and the coaches at that time will be prepared. I am confident that from this team, a lot of people will be part of the team. Winning a gold in the Olympics is a great matter of pride and happiness. We need to fully prepare for that,” Dravid added.
