Sports News, June 20:- Former Indian skipper Rahul Dravid is set to be appointed as the head coach of India A and the under-19 team by virtue of an extension clause in his BCCI contract. The 44-year-old was appointed as the coach of the two teams last year and his 10-month tenure ended in March this year.
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.
The Cricket Advisory Committee, that has Indian greats like Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman, was behind Dravid’s appointment in 2016. Reports suggest that CAC played a role in Dravid’s extension as well.
