Dravid may be given India U-19 and A team’s Coaching Job


Mumbai: After Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Sourav Ganguly became a part of BCCI’s advisory committee a period of speculation over Rahul Dravid’s omission from BCCI’s Cricket Advisory Committee, the Indian board may soon come up with an announcement on Dravid’s role in taking Indian cricket forward. It is learnt that BCCI has a “role in mind” for Dravid, which could possibly be handing him the coaching job of India Under-19 and A teams. The report also said that Dravid wasn’t interested in an advisory role and wants a more practical involvement with Indian cricket.

Dravid, who has been mentoring the IPL team Rajasthan Royals, is known to get the best out of youngsters – which shows in the progress of players like Sanju Samson and Deepak Hooda. It has also been suggested that Dravid is not keen on taking up the Team India coach job citing time constraints. He reportedly wants to spend more time with his family after a long and illustrious career that involved incessant travelling.
