Former India captain and current head of cricket at the National Cricket Academy Rahul Dravid has called for a wait-and-watch approach before the resumption of cricket in the country.

Be patient and wait: Rahul Dravid on resuming cricket in India!

"I don't think we are in a position to resume…. It is better to be patient and wait," Dravid told The Week, an Indian magazine. "We have to take it month by month. One has to look at all options. If the domestic season, which usually starts by August-September, starts in October… one has to see whether the season should be shortened.

"Everything is uncertain right now. How much cricket will be played and what it will take to be able to play depends on the guidelines from the government and medical experts. For us at NCA, the busiest time is from April to June. We normally have our zonal, U-16, U-19, U-23 camps happening at this time. [But] we had to keep redrawing plans. I just hope we don't lose a lot of our cricket season, and that we can get some cricket this year," he added.

Dravid further said that the NCA, located in Bengaluru, will initially open for training local cricketers.

"The NCA will possibly open initially for some local cricketers," Dravid said. "Those arriving from other places will have to first quarantine themselves for 14 days. Whether that is possible, we have to see.

"For domestic cricket, fortunately, we were able to complete most of our competitions before the lockdown. We have to see whether players are comfortable with inter-state travel. Our training programmes will depend on which domestic tournament will be played first. If it is T20, then we will start the programme accordingly."
