In a recent report, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is reportedly considering naming Indian cricket legend Rahul Dravid as the head of the team for the upcoming Australia series. This potential decision comes on the heels of a remarkable performance by Dravid’s Team India in the ICC World Cup 2023, where they have won all of their first five matches, positioning themselves as strong contenders to secure a spot in the tournament’s later stages.
Under Dravid’s guidance, the likes of Rohit Sharma and the Indian cricket team have demonstrated their prowess by defeating formidable opponents such as Australia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and New Zealand during the round-robin stage of the ICC World Cup hosted in India. Dravid’s mission as head coach has been to bring an end to India’s prolonged trophy drought in ICC events.
It’s worth noting that Dravid’s current contract as the head coach of the men’s team is set to conclude at the conclusion of the One Day International (ODI) World Cup. Taking over the reins from the former head coach, Ravi Shastri, Dravid has played a pivotal role in guiding India to the semi-finals of the ICC World T20 last year. Furthermore, Team India was in contention during the final of the ICC World Test Championship.
With the ongoing World Cup’s success and the promising achievements under Rahul Dravid’s leadership, the anticipation is high that he may be entrusted with the responsibility of leading the Indian cricket team during the Australia series, as they seek to extend their winning streak and clinch the coveted trophy.
