Dravid, who had a critical impact in making India’s rich seat strength, was selected Head of Cricket in July 2019 get-togethers worked widely with the lesser players as India U-19 and A mentor. 

His long term contract has finished and according to convention, BCCI has welcomed applications. Dravid is probably going to reapply for a two-year expansion. The last date for application is August 15.

“Rahul Dravid could well reapply for the post but with Ravi Shastri’s tenure ending in November 2021 after T20 WC, there is every possibility of Rahul being elevated to head coach’s position. Bottom line, he remains very much a part of system,” quoted by BCCI Source to PTI.

Dravid as of late went to Sri Lanka as lead trainer of India’s restricted overs crew with the Test side in England simultaneously. 

After the finish of the six games in Sri Lanka, he was inquired as to whether needed to be India lead trainer on a drawn out premise however he was hesitant on the high-profile subject.

“I haven’t really thought anything far ahead, to be honest. I am enjoying doing what I am doing,” said by Rahul Dravid.

The current age limit set for the lead trainer is 60 years, similar to the NCA head job, and Shastri turned 59 in May. Dravid may come into the picture if India don’t do well in the T20 World Cup. 

India are yet to win a significant occasion under Kohli and Shastri’s organisation yet has done well as a Test side, featured with their two away series wins in Australia.

“He will be singularly responsible for the development of emerging and youth cricketers within the male and female player development programmes who are sent to the NCA” concluded by BCCI source.
