According to reports, BCCI president Ganguly has confirmed Dravid as India's head coach for the upcoming visit to Sri Lanka tour
Sourav Ganguly, the president of the BCCI, put an end to the rumors by announcing Rahul Dravid, the legendary Indian cricketer, as the head coach for the limited-overs tour to Sri Lanka in July. Sourav Ganguly, the former India captain, and current BCCI president have confirmed Rahul Dravid as the head coach of the Indian squad that will go to Sri Lanka in July for a limited-overs series.
Dravid's name had been going about as a potential head coach for the Sri Lanka tour for a while, but the board had issued no official pronouncements while picking the squad for the visit. Ganguly, on the other hand, put a stop to the rumors by verifying the events.
“Rahul Dravid will be the coach for the India tour to Sri Lanka,” Ganguly told in reports.
Dravid has been credited as one of the key contributors to India's outstanding bench strength, which has been praised by experts all over the world. Dravid, the only Indian cricketer to score more than 10,000 runs in Tests and ODIs after Sachin Tendulkar, has been in charge of India's U19 and Asides for the past several years.
In July, India will play three ODIs and three T20Is in Sri Lanka. It will be the first time that two Indian teams would compete in two distinct corners of the world. Virat Kohli will command the Indian Test team in a five-match series against England, while Shikhar Dhawan will captain the Indian limited-overs team in Sri Lanka at the same time.
"The opportunities would be limited but I'm just looking forward to learning from this journey as much as I can. There are experienced players in the group and obviously, once again I will get a chance to reconnect with Rahul Sir. Last India A tour happened one and half years ago, so again, there is a chance to regroup with him (Rahul Dravid) have a chat about the game, so there is a lot more than just performance or scorecard" he said.
Further, he added, "Obviously if I get the opportunity, just hoping that I can give my best and wish to win a game for India. One of my biggest goals is to get a win for the Indian team or my country."
