The Indian cricket team has got a new coach, former cricketer Rahul Dravid will now take over. Ravi Shastri’s tenure is coming to an end after the T20 World Cup, in which case Rahul will take his place.
The BCCI had been in talks with Rahul Dravid for a long time, but Rahul had earlier refused to accept the post. However, after a meeting in the UAE some time ago, Rahul Dravid had applied for the post of head coach and has now been appointed as the head coach of Team India.
Rahul Dravid has issued a statement after becoming the coach of Team India. On behalf of Rahul Dravid, it has been said that it is a matter of great pride to be the coach of Team India. Team India under the leadership of Ravi Shastri has done a great job, which I will try to take forward. I have worked with many players in India A, Under-19 and NCA, so it will be fun to work with them. There are big events in the next two years, we will try to achieve the goal together with all the players and support staff.
