Although Rahul Dravid has coached Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Daredevils before, his current stint as the coach of the Indian U-19 team has been the best. He is molding the future of the Indian cricket team and his role is very important for India's future.

Dravid's contribution to Indian cricket has been immense. He has scored tons of runs both at home and away which in most cases has been in difficult situations. Dravid was also a reliable wicket-keeper and he took that responsibility for many years despite being one of the best batsmen in the team. He also succeeded Sourav Ganguly as India's captain.

Mahela Jayawardene found success as the coach of Mumbai Indians in his very first season as they won the IPL in 2017. Jayawardene has kept his job since then and has also completed coaching assignments in the T10 league since then. He will continue his coaching stint with Mumbai Indians next season and every Sri Lankan fan would be hoping that he would take the mantle of their current international team very soon.

Jayawardene can be considered as one of the best middle-order batsman produced by Sri Lanka. He has created multiple records in all the format and his century in the final of the 2011 World Cup is still remembered. Sri Lanka became a potent force under Mahela's captaincy.

Jacques Kallis has arguably been the best all-rounder that the world has seen and his coaching stint with KKR has been successful so far. He will be looking to get a trophy next year with the young team.

Kallis will make to any all-time XI because of his astonishing contributions in both the departments of the game. During his playing team, South Africa's performance revolved around him and he did no disappoint them in most cases.

Brad Hodge is a good T20 player and is currently the Head Coach of St Lucia Stars in Caribbean Premier League. He has been the coach of Gujarat Lions and Kings XI Punjab in the past and has built a good reputation as a coach.

After the advent of T20 cricket, Hodge was considered as the best batsman in this format as he held the highest scorer record for many years. He also contributed to the team with his off-spin and was a good fielder. However, his career with Australia did not meet expectations and he retired as a great T20 player.
