BCCI Secretary Jay Shah addressed the departure of Rahul Dravid from his role as Team India’s head coach after the T20 World Cup, citing Dravid’s personal reasons for not wanting to continue. Shah emphasized that Dravid expressed a desire to step down due to family commitments, a decision that was respected by the board without any pressure to extend his tenure.

Shah praised Dravid for his extensive service to Indian cricket, highlighting his roles both on the field as a cricketer and off the field as an administrator and coach. He acknowledged Dravid’s significant contributions during his tenure as the head coach, which included guiding the team to the final of the 2023 ODI World Cup and now to victory in the T20 World Cup, underscoring Dravid’s dedication to completing the tasks he undertook.

Regarding the selection of Dravid’s successor, Shah disclosed that the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) had interviewed and shortlisted two candidates. The final decision will be revealed upon their return to Mumbai, with the new coach set to take charge ahead of the upcoming limited-overs series against Sri Lanka starting later in the month.

Shah also touched upon the ongoing transition within the Indian team, noting the retirements of stalwarts like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Ravindra Jadeja. He expressed confidence in India’s deep bench strength, suggesting the capability to field multiple competitive teams across various formats if required.

Looking ahead, India’s cricketing landscape is set for changes with new leadership at the coaching helm, as the team prepares for its upcoming series and future challenges under fresh guidance.
