A report in TOI confirmed that former Indian skipper Rahul Dravid is appointed as the next head coach of Team India till 2023. He will be joined by Paras Mhambrey as the bowling coach of the side. The development happened in BCCI President Sourav Ganguly’s presence after the IPL final in Dubai on Friday.

A top BCCI official confirmed that Rahul Dravid will take over as the coach of the side after Ravi Shastri and has already given his consent for the same.

“Dravid has confirmed he will be the next head coach of the Indian team. He will be stepping down as the head of the NCA soon” the BCCI official said.

Dravid’s first assignment as Team India coach will be India’s home series against New Zealand which will start three days after the T20 World Cup ends. His contract will run till the end of the 50-over World Cup in 2023. His contract is reportedly worth Rs 10 crore.

This is How Twitter Reacted to Rahul Dravid’s Appointment

The BCCI was due to start the hiring process for a new head coach this week. But secretary Jay Shah and president Sourav Ganguly were in favour of getting someone like Dravid. The latter has spent a long time shaping the feeder line of budding cricketers, so he has been deemed the right man to take Indian cricket forward.

“He was re-appointed as the NCA head last month. But the BCCI needed a strong candidate to take Indian cricket forward. He has worked so hard to develop the next line of Indian cricketers,” said the official.

Meanwhile, as per reports in ESPN Cricinfo, Paras Mhambrey will be assisting Dravid as the team’s bowling cocah. The former Indian cricketer has been working with Dravid closely at the NCA and is looking forward to continuing the partnership with the Indian team as well.

Dravid was recent with the Indian team in Sri Lanka while the senior Indian side was playing parallelly in England. Under him, India won the ODI series but lost the Test series against the Islanders.
