Rahul Dravid on Sunday said he remains undecided on his future with the Rajasthan Royals and would look to make a decision after a break.
The Royals slumped to an embarrassing 10-wicket defeat against the Mumbai Indians in Jaipur before the Royals skipper revealed his plans for the next season.
"I really don't know. I will have to think over. I would take a break and decide about my role," Dravid said.
"I will talk to my family and also the management of the Rajasthan Royals about my role and then I would decide. My goal is to develop young players."
Dravid captained the side in the 2012 season after Shane Warne parted ways with the franchise. He stressed on the capabilities of his inexperienced side and showered praise on the commitment shown by the youngsters.
"It was a pleasure to lead the side and the support from the management and support staff has been top notch. We have youngsters like Ashok Menaria, Ajit Chandila, Ankit Chavan and Gajendra Singh. I am sorry about the local lad Gajendra Singh who is a fine bowler but couldn't get a chance to play," he said.
"As far as my own performance is concerned I played my role as the opener withAjinkya Rahane to satisfaction. I feel batting is one thing and scoring runs is another thing."
Speaking of the next season Dravid said, "We need a young and talented player who could open the innings with Rahane. He might be with some other franchise but we would try and rope him for the next season. We also have god players hopefully we would make it to the play offs next year."
Dravid rued having lost out on the play-offs after putting on a good fight in the tournament. "We couldn't make it to play offs but have played good cricket.
"We had lost a few close games like the ones against Delhi, Deccan and Chennai and that hurt us. The previous night was also a tough one for us. We did get some chances but could not get the breakthrough," he said.
