Batting legend Rahul Dravid named coach of India A and Under-19 team by BCCI


By NewsGram Staff Writer

Batting legend Rahul Dravid has been named the coach of the India ‘A’ and Under-19 teams by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

The development was confirmed by BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur at a press conference after a board meeting here on Saturday.

Thakur also said that Karnataka’s right-handed batsman Lokesh Rahul won’t be travelling with the Indian team to Bangladesh for its upcoming tour against the neighbouring country due to an injury. An immediate replacement was not named by the BCCI.

The appointment of India’s senior coach still remains a mystery.

“The current set-up of Team Director Ravi Shastri and assistant coaches Sanjay Bangar, R Sreedhar and B Arun will continue”, said Thakur.

When asked if Ganguly was being considered for the position, Thakur boldly said, “Let’s not speculate. We have not short-listed any names but in some time we will have a few names.”

Another major development announced by the BCCI was that a team of retired legends comprising Tendulkar, Laxman and Ganguly would spend time with Team India whenever required.

A pool of bowlers who can be groomed by specialized coaches would be selected by the cricketing majors.

“One important recommendation was to select a pool of 15 fast bowlers and 15 spinners and have specialist coaches for them,” the board secretary said.

To improve India’s performance more A tours will be conducted, especially before an important assignment of the senior team.

India is scheduled to play a Test match and three One-Day Internationals (ODIs), starting with the five-day match on June 10.
