After securing five consecutive victories in the ODI World Cup 2023, the Indian head coach Rahul Dravid and the rest of the support staff went on a trek in Triund, while the players stayed back in the city of Dharamsala. The 50-year-old was mesmerised by the view of the mountains, while talking about how challenging a trek it really is.
The Indian cricket team had extended their stay in Dharamsala by a couple of days to unwind, before they head to Lucknow to play against the defending champions England at the Ekana Cricket Stadium. India are currently on top of the standings for the ODI World Cup 2023 with 10 points, while staying undefeated in the quadrennial spectacle as of right now.
The video of the Triund trek was shared by the Indian cricket team on their official Instagram account featuring the head coach Rahul Dravid and the batting coach Vikram Rathour. The caption read, “A day off for the squad is a day well spent in the hills for the support staff. Dharamsala done. Taking some positive vibes to Lucknow next”.

Rahul Dravid was quoted as saying, “Superb view coming up to Triund. Just getting here, you are going up the mountain, climbing. It’s a challenging trek, I must admit it. Once you come here, the views are breathtaking, spectacular. It’s incredible for the support staff to be able to come here. Just a great day out as well.”
The 50-year-old also spoke about the reason why the Indian players didn’t come to trek in Triund and said, “Unfortunately, can’t bring the boys up here, a bit too risky walking on those stones. But hopefully, one day when they are not playing (the sport), I would love for some of the boys to come here and experience this.”
