Kolkata: India team’s on board director for the Bangladesh tour Ravi Shastri on Sunday welcomed the decision by Board of Control for Cricket in India ( BCCI) to appoint former skipper Rahul Dravid as the coach of the India ‘A’ and under-19 squads, saying that there is no better role-model for youngsters.
“There is no better news for Indian cricket than Dravid being in charge of youngsters. You cannot have a bigger role-model than that man. Just the way he has played his cricket and the dedication he has shown towards the game will help the youngsters, big time,” Shastri said at a press conference here.
“I am extremely happy because we have got a man like Dravid and all our conversations would be frank and honest and we would surely depend on his thinking as he would be with the youngsters,” he added.
