India head coach Rahul Dravid might not continue in his position after the T20 World Cup and the senior men's team is all set to have a new personality at the helm. According to a report in Sportstar, Dravid has informed BCCI about his decision to step away at the end of India's T20 World Cup campaign next month.
The application deadline is all set for May 27 with the new head coach expected to take charge from July 1, after the conclusion of the T20 World Cup.
Last week, BCCI secretary Jay Shah, while saying that the applications for the head coach will be invited soon, had added that Dravid will have to reapply if he wants an extension.
According to the report, Dravid had clarified well in advance of looking for no further extension beyond the T20 World Cup for personal reasons.
A group of seniors in the side had reportedly requested him to consider being at the upper echelons of the Test side for at least another year but Dravid had already decided.
Notably, India will travel to Australia in November for the away leg of the Border-Gavaskar series and given the magnitude of the tour, it is expected that seniors would have liked Dravid to still be the coach.
Had Dravid agreed, BCCI may have looked for different coaches for red-ball and white-ball cricket. But as said by Shah last week, there will just be one head coach across formats and his appointment will be till the end of 2027.
There were reports that head of the National Cricket Academy, former India cricketer VVS Laxman might apply for the post but the Sportstar report refutes it, saying that he might not enter the competition to bag the spot.
BCCI, thus, might be mulling to bring in a foreign coach, after discussing the matter at hand with senior players. Two IPL head coaches, who have been in the grind for a while now, have been approached but there have been no confirmations from the coaches' side yet.
