Dravid: Hopefully from January onwards we will choose our full power ODI squad barring accidents

India head coach Rahul Dravid believes from January, India in all probability, may have a full power ODI squad which is able to then constantly play for the following 8-9 months main as much as the World Cup at dwelling in October-November.

India’s ODI efficiency has been shoddy with back-to-back defeats in sequence in opposition to New Zealand and Bangladesh with very completely different squads as a result of workload administration associated permutations and combos.

Requested if batting and bowling within the center overs is turning into an issue, Dravid stated it hasn’t been simple not having the complete squad.

“I guess from our perspective, it has not been easy to play. We don’t have full squad. Hopefully, from January, depending on injuries, we will get full squad to play home series. We have nine ODIs before IPL (3 vs NZ, 3 vs SL and 3 vs Aus) and hopefully, we will get to play a settled squad in those games,” Dravid stated at post-match press convention.

“In the last two years, we had prioritised T20s a lot as there were two World Cups. In the next 8-10 months, we will be prioritising ODI cricket. It is not easy to juggle three formats.

“Now, our white ball boys (specialists) will get some rest with Test matches being played,” Dravid added.
