Rahul Dravid in line to become India’s head coach

News

If things go to plan, the former captain will take charge of the backroom in time for the home series against New Zealand later this year

Rahul Dravid is, by a distance, the frontrunner to be the next chief coach of the Indian men’s team, and is in line to take over once Ravi Shastri finishes up at the end of the upcoming T20 World Cup, ESPNcricinfo has learnt. If things fall in place, he will head the backroom staff for the home series against New Zealand starting late November.

Dravid has always been the BCCI’s favoured candidate to take over the job from Shastri, who is ineligible to reapply for the position when his term expires, owing to age-restriction norms currently in force. The question was always about Dravid’s inclination and, according to BCCI sources, he has been persuaded to take the job. There will still be a formal process of inviting applications, but if Dravid chooses to apply, the BCCI is unlikely to look beyond him, ESPNcricinfo understands.
