Rahul Dravid as Head Coach

Rahul Dravid has been retained as India’s head coach after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) extended his contract. Dravid’s initial two-year term ended with the conclusion of the 2023 ODI World Cup earlier this month, but he will now continue in the role until at least the 2024 T20 World Cup in June.

India has made significant strides under Dravid’s leadership, rising to the top of the Test, ODI, and T20I rankings. However, they were unable to convert their consistent performances into trophies, finishing as semi-finalists in the 2022 T20 World Cup and runners-up in the 2023 World Test Championship and the 2023 ODI World Cup.

Despite not winning any silverware, Dravid’s impact on the team has been undeniable. He has instilled a strong culture and identity within the squad, emphasizing the importance of process and preparation. India’s impressive run in the ODI World Cup, where they won all nine league games and the semi-final, is a testament to Dravid’s coaching philosophy.

In a statement announcing his contract extension, Dravid expressed his gratitude to the BCCI and his family for their support. He also acknowledged the challenges that lie ahead and reiterated his commitment to pursuing excellence.

Dravid’s first assignment in his second stint as head coach will be India’s tour of South Africa, starting with three T20Is and three ODIs from December 10, followed by two Tests. A five-Test series against England at home will follow, before the T20 World Cup in June.

BCCI secretary Jay Shah expressed the board’s full backing for Dravid, highlighting his vision, guidance, and the roadmap he has charted for the team. He also commended Dravid for setting up the platform for India’s success in the ODI World Cup.

The BCCI has also extended the terms for India’s support staff, with Vikram Rathour (batting coach), Paras Mhambrey (bowling coach), and T Dilip (fielding coach) continuing in their respective roles.
