So, the news has arrived which was long due. Former Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid has been appointed as the Head Coach of the Indian Cricket Team (Senior Men).
Well, it was not a surprise as it was pretty clear and we knew this was going to happen when Dravid formally submitted his proposal for the job.
“It is an absolute honour to be appointed as the new head coach of the Indian cricket team, I am really looking forward to this role,” Dravid was quoted as saying in a BCCI statement. “Under Mr (Ravi) Shastri, the team has done very well, and I hope to work with the team to take this forward.“Having worked closely with most of the boys either at NCA [National Cricket Academy], U19 and India A setup, I know they have the passion and desire to improve every day. There are some marquee multi-team events in the next two years, and I look forward to working with the players and the support staff to achieve our potential.”
“Rahul’s effort at the NCA has nurtured several young cricketing talents who have gone on to represent the country at the international stage. I am hopeful that his new stint will take Indian cricket to new heights”
