Former India captain Rahul Dravid has emerged as the biggest contender to be India’s new chief coach – a position that is lying vacant since Duncan Fletcher’s ouster after 2015 World Cup. Since then, Ravi Shastri, another former India captain, was playing the role in the capacity of Team Director but with India’s exit from the World T20, his tenure also got over.
According to a report in the Times of India, the BCCI’s advisory committee, comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman, is in favour of appointing Dravid as chief coach. Dravid is in charge of India A and India Under-19 squads for almost a year now. The advisory committee approached Dravid to know if he was interested in the job.
