The announcement of the upcoming hiring of a new head coach has been verified by Jay Shah, Secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Following the 2023 ODI World Cup, Rahul Dravid, who has been the head coach of Team India since November 2021, had his contract extended. However, given that the board is about to release an advertisement for a new coach, it doesn’t appear that Dravid will receive a longer contract. As the head coach of the Indian squad, Dravid’s contract with the BCCI expires in June, the same month that the side will compete in the T20 World Cup.

In November 2023, Dravid signed a contract extension with his coaching staff to continue leading the Indian squad. However, the new agreement was only good through June 30, 2024.

According to Jay Shah, Dravid is free to apply for the position if he so chooses; however, there won’t be a pre-arranged extension.

“Rahul is only here till June. Therefore, he is free to apply if he so chooses,” the BCCI secretary told Cricbuzz, declining to rule out the prospect of employing a foreign coach.

“We don’t know if the new coach will be foreign or Indian. The BCCI representative stated, “As a global body, it will be up to the CAC.”

The idea of employing separate coaches for various formats, as several other international boards do, was all but eliminated by Shah.

The CAC will also make that determination. There are numerous all-format players, like Rishabh Pant, Rohit Sharma, and Virat Kohli. Furthermore, such a circumstance has never happened before in India.”

The Impact Player rule, which has drawn a lot of criticism from active international players like India captain Rohit Sharma, was another topic Shah was questioned about. Shah stated that he would talk to the relevant parties about the issue and determine whether the regulation should continue to be followed.
