BCCI President Sourav Ganguly recently dropped a major update about the rumours of former Indian skipper Rahul Dravid being selected as the next head coach of the Indian cricket team and it certainly adds a sense of vagueness around all the reports that have been published in the last few days.

“There’s no confirmation, I only read it in the newspapers. There is due process. It has been advertised. If he wants to apply, then he will,” Ganguly said on the ‘Salaam Cricket’ show of Aaj Tak suggesting that he has no idea how or why did the reports of Dravid becoming the next head coach emerged.

“Right now, he is the director of NCA. He came to meet us in Dubai to talk about NCA. How to take it forward. We all believe the NCA has a big role in developing the future of Indian cricket. NCA creates the next generation of Indian cricketers. So, he wanted to discuss that,” Ganguly added.

Before Ganguly’s revelation, it was reported that Dravid had said yes to replace Ravi Shastri following the end of Team India’s T20 World Cup 2021 campaign and that his first assignment as the coach would be to take on a touring New Zealand squad on home turf in the second half of November.

It was also reported that Dravid’s trusted lieutenant, Paras Mhambrey was also being appointed as the next bowling coach for the Men in Blue, while Vikram Rathour and R Sridar were to continue as the batting and fielding coaches, respectively.

In the second week of October, mere days before the said reports were published, the BCCI had announced that the had tried to persuade Dravid into taking the job but he had politely declined the offer as he wanted to focus more on developing the youth of Indian cricket as the head of the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru.

“We had a chat with him earlier too on whether he wants to take up the coaching role of the senior side but he didn’t seem that interested. His stand is pretty much the same even now. He asked for some time. Let’s see what happens,” Ganguly said at the show.
