Former Indian skipper Sunil Gavaskar has said he feels that former Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid could replace Duncan Fletcher as Indian coach.


Gavaskar told NDTV, "I think the first name that comes to my mind is Rahul Dravid because he is enormously respected. He has been one of India's most successful skippers -- he doesn't get much credit for that because his was a shorter reign."

"A younger person is needed because a younger person will have the intensity and will want to prove that he has the coaching credentials. We tried Fletcher for a year, year and a half, two years and nothing worked. Now is the time for us to take a hard call," Gavaskar said.

Slamming Fletcher for India's poor performance, Gavaskar said he has nothing for the country's Test cricket or One-day cricket.

"What has Fletcher done? He has done nothing for Test cricket or One-day cricket. I think that makes a huge difference," said Gavaskar.

"I would rate Fletcher 1.5 on 10 at best. Why persist with an out-of-form coach?" he said.
