Rahul Dravid Set To Continue As Under 19 & India A Coach

  • Virat Kohli is not keen on Anil Kumble continuing in his role as Team India coach

The official further added that the CAC comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman have given a green light to Dravid's contract extension.

According to the new BCCI directives, all national coaches will now have a contract of two years, wherein they will not be permitted to coach any other sides, including the Indian Premier League teams.

This is in stark contrast to senior national team head coach Anil Kumble's predicament.

Speaking to Cricketnext, a source in the COA said that while the committee has stayed away from the decision process, it is important that Kohli and Kumble are on the same page before the latter is handed an extension because the atmosphere in the team will take a beating if Kumble continues against Kohli's wish. Dravid has already sought more clarity on the conflict of interest issue after former Committee of Administrators (CoA) member Ramchandra Guha, in his scathing resignation letter, had lashed out at the BCCI's functioning besides alleging conflict of interest in the case of Dravid.

CAC has agreed to offer Dravid a fresh extension. The financial aspect of Dravid's contract is yet to be finalized. They replied saying that the Indian batting legend had not breached the terms of his contract.

The committee approved the two-year extension and everything will be official once Dravid's salary is decided. The earlier contract was for ten months and board paid him more than four crores.

As per ABP News report, Kumble didn't board the flight from England to West Indies, where Team India will be playing five one-day internationals and one T20 global. Considering Dravid's exceptional batting success in England, his guidance would be priceless for the youngsters in the team.
