On Tuesday, IPL franchise Delhi Daredevils unveiled Dravid as their mentor. Dravid was associated with Rajasthan Royals until the former IPL winners were banned last year for two seasons by a Supreme Court appointed committee.

Usually unflappable under pressure, Dravid admitted he was embarrassed for being caught on camera for throwing his cap in disgust during an IPL match. The former Test batsman said pressure was part of the game and coaching was “emotional” business.

Dravid has coached the Indian A team and the under-19 World Cup squad last year. He has, however, ruled out coaching the senior team.

‘It’s still early days in my coaching career and I am learning. Shorter assignments suit me well,” Dravid said in an exclusive chat, adding he wanted to spend more time with his sons.
