Rahul Dravid To Remain India’s Head Coach Till T20 World Cup

BCCI secretary Jay Shah announced that Rahul Dravid will continue to be India’s head coach until the T20 World Cup. For the second time in the competition’s history, Rohit Sharma will captain India in the men’s T20 World Cup in 2024.

Shah acknowledged that Rohit led the team during the T20 World Cup, as suggested by his comeback to the lead against Afghanistan. Even if India loses the ODI World Cup final, Rohit’s leadership is still very important. The long-term option is still Hardik Pandya, who captained India in the Twenty20s in 2023.

After discussions, Dravid’s contract was extended, guaranteeing his position as coach until the T20 World Cup. Shah acknowledged the need for more communication with Dravid and stressed the importance of continuing conversations in the midst of a hectic cricket schedule.

In addition to highlighting Rohit’s temporary reinstatement as a result of Hardik’s injury sustained during the ODI World Cup, Shah emphasised Hardik’s potential as a T20 captain.

Even though contract talks are still ongoing, the choice to keep Dravid shows faith in his coaching ability. Shah’s remarks demonstrate the BCCI’s dedication to strategic planning in the face of India’s busy cricket schedule, which includes upcoming matches against England and other commitments.
