India's batting robust Rahul Dravid is good to go to take over as the public cricket crew's lead trainer following the T20 World Cup in the UAE, having consented to the BCCI's proposal after beginning hesitance. The 48-year-old Dravid, one of the best at any point to have played for India, has been accountable for the India An and U-19 set-up for the beyond six years and a ton of players, for example, Rishabh Pant, Avesh Khan, Prithvi Shaw, Hanuma Vihari, and Shubman Gill have gotten through the framework arranged by him. He at present heads the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru.
"Yes, Rahul has agreed to coach the Indian team till 2023 World Cup. Initially, he was reluctant but it is understood that president Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah had a meeting with Rahul on the sidelines of the IPL final where they were able to convince him," a BCCI official told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
"It won't be an interim role," he added. Dravid's trusted lieutenant Paras Mhambrey is expected to be the bowling coach while Vikram Rathour is likely to continue as batting coach.
Notwithstanding, it is perceived that the BCCI will regardless give a notice for the situation to guarantee that fair treatment is followed.
Having seen Ravi Shastri make a ton of progress, the BCCI was consistently excited about naming an Indian mentor yet there were a couple of height.
One previous Indian skipper and sturdy had effectively would not turn into the mentor in the current group set-up as Virat Kohli actually stays the Test and ODI commander.
It is discovered that greater names were careful about instructing a group where Kohli had for the most part made major decisions till the Australia visit recently.
The elements have changed from that point forward as the group out-moved a more grounded Australia without a trace of Kohli, who was on paternity leave around then.
Shastri was accountable for the group at an expense of Rs 8.5 crore and it is perceived that BCCI is offering Dravid a huge climb, which will be more than his NCA compensation just as Shastri's present check.
The essential thought behind having the Dravid-Mhambrey blend in the Indian group set-up is to guarantee that in an additional two years, when the progress of this group occurs, the changing of core is smooth.
"Rohit will be 35 next year, Virat is days away from his 33rd birthday. Apart from them Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara, and Ajinkya Rahane are all fantastic players but at some point during next two years, they will be phased out.
"The players who are set to come in are mostly from the U-19 set-up. So it's imperative that Dravid is appointed," the source said.
