Rahul Dravid Contract as Head Coach: The day after the BCCI released a media statement on extending head coach Rahul Dravid’s tenure, a PTI report claimed that the former India captain hasn’t signed any contract extension yet. Dravid’s contract as India’s head coach concluded after the ODI World Cup 2023, where the Men in Blue emerged as runners-up.
“I haven’t yet signed a contract with the BCCI but had discussions on tenure. Once I get the papers, I will sign,” stated Head coach Rahul Dravid after the World Cup and contract review meeting, as reported by PTI. Alongside Dravid, BCCI Secretary Jay Shah, chief selector Ajit Agarkar, and captain Rohit Sharma participated in the review meeting held in the Capital on Thursday.
Previously, following India’s World Cup final loss to Australia, Dravid was asked about his future as India head coach. The former wicket-keeper then had said he is yet to decide on his future.
“I haven’t thought about it. I’ve just come off a game. I had no time to think about this and no time to reflect on this. Yeah, I will when I get the time to do that. At this point of time, I was completely focused on this campaign and there was nothing else on my mind. And I haven’t given any other thought to what happens in the future,” he had said.
