Former Indian cricket team captain and batsman Rahul Dravid has been appointed as the new head coach of Team India. He will take over his responsibility after the T20 World Cup 2021. At present, the head coach of the Indian cricket team is Ravi Shastri, whose tenure is ending after the T20 World Cup 2021. BCCI announced the appointment of Rahul Dravid as the head coach.
The Cricket Advisory Committee unanimously decided to appoint Rahul Dravid as the head coach. Ms. Sulakshana Naik and Mr. RP Singh, who were part of the committee, unanimously decided to coach Dravid, who will take over from the home series against New Zealand. Let us tell you that on the Indian tour of New Zealand, the first T20 match between the two teams will be played in Jaipur on November 17 while the second match will be played in Ranchi on November 19. The third T20 match will then be played in Kolkata on November 20. After the T20 series is over, the first Test match will be played in Kanpur from November 25, followed by the second Test in Mumbai from December 3.
It was being discussed for the past several days that Rahul Dravid can be appointed after Ravi Shastri as the head coach of Team India. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jay Shah also had a lot of talks with Dravid regarding this in Dubai. Although Rahul Dravid was not ready for it at first, but later he agreed to it. Rahul Dravid was made the head coach of the Indian cricket team for the tour of Sri Lanka this year when the other Indian team went on a tour of England. Before being appointed to this post, Rahul Dravid was playing the role of NCA chief.
