Rahul Dravid Unlikely to Reapply for India Head Coach Job

The Indian men’s cricket team might be moving on from the Rahul Dravid-era with a report claiming that the legendary batter is unlikely to put in his name for the head coach’s role even as BCCI has kept the door open for his return.

As per a report in The Times of India, Dravid, whose two-year contract was extended for a short term after it came to an end with the 2023 ODI World Cup, isn’t going to  reapply for the position he has been keeping hold of since officially taking over in November 2021.

Recently, BCCI secretary Jay Shah revealed that the board is set to invite applications for the role of Indian men’s team head coach role meaning Dravid’s current tenure will end with the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup in June.

Dravid though can throw his hat back into the ring if he wishes to. Shah didn’t rule out the possibility of a foreign coach succeeding into the role.

For the record, Duncan Fletcher was the last foreigner to have been appointed as the head coach of the men’s cricket team whose tenure ended in 2015.
