"I explain why Laxman has gone with a new, inexperienced team," Ashwin wrote on his YouTube channel.

Prior to the T20 World Cup beginning, Rahul Dravid and his staff started putting in significant effort during the planning phase. I'm saying this since I've personally witnessed everything up close.

He had a plan for every location and every opposition team, according to Ashwin.

They were therefore mentally as well as physically exhausted, and in such a circumstance, everyone needed to relax.

After the series with New Zealand is over, we have to play Bangladesh. For this tour, which is led by Laxman, we have a different coaching staff.

The Indian team advanced to the semifinals by winning four of its previous six games, but this time, England needed to triumph.

Dravid's decision to rest was questioned by Ravi Shastri, who replaced Dravid as head coach of the Indian team shortly after.

Why would the coach of the Indian team need any other type of break if he or she receives a two to three month break during the IPL?

On their trip of New Zealand, India must play three T20 and three ODI series. On November 30, the final game of this tour will be played, and four days later, the Indian squad will be in Bangladesh.
