Rahul Dravid is all set to take charge of Indian Cricket Team

After a lot of ifs and buts, the Indian board may have just managed to bring ‘the wall’ on board. According to reports, Sourav Ganguly led team is confident that after the T20 World Series, Rahul Dravid will take charge of the Indian Cricket Team as their head coach.

The board has already issued an official statement where they have mentioned that they are looking for a new head coach along with batting, bowling and a fielding coach. This also means that the successful tenure of Ravi Shastri, Bharat Arun and R. Sridhar is coming to an end. According to reports, Vikram Rathoud, the batting coach, may apply for the head coach position.

However, it might just go to vain and the board has already set their mind to appoint Dravid as the next head coach. Dravid was the head of the National Cricket Association (NCA) and was also the head coach of the U-19 cricketers and Indian A team. He has been extremely successful and won series everywhere including a U-19 World Series in New Zealand. Recently, when the Indian test team was in England to play the five match series there, Dravid led a young Indian team in Sri Lanka and won the t20 series there but fell short in the 50 over series after many of his team members were ruled out because of Covid. Thus, Dravid has the experience and probably is the perfect person to lead India after the Ravi Shastri era.

Talking about Shastri, the Mumbaikar had quite a team with the men in blue. Winning the test series in Australia was probably the highest point of his coaching career. Under his guidance, the Indian team also reached the semifinals of the 2019 World Series and 2016 t20 World Series. Thus, he has given plenty of joy to the billions who love the game.

According to sources, Shastri may ‘slow down’. He has been in the business for 42 years now. First as a cricketer, then as a commentator and now as the head coach of the Indian Cricket Team. The 59-year-old may take up the role of a head coach in any Indian t20 league franchise but not for anything else. He may as well rejoin his mates in the commentary panel and resume his magnificent career in commentary.
