Rahul Dravid likely to be appointed Team India’s interim coach for home series against New Zealand: Report

It
is
now
being
reported
that
the
board
isn’t
going
to
appoint
a
candidate
in
a
haste.
So
for
the
upcoming
home
series
against
New
Zealand,
the
BCCI
is
likely
to
appoint
former
India
captain
Rahul
Dravid
as
an
interim
coach.

Dravid

who
is
the
head
of
the
National
Cricket
Academy
(NCA)
and
coached
India’s
limited-overs
side
on
the
tour
of
Sri
Lanka
in
July
this
year

was
BCCI’s
first
choice
as
a
full-time
coach.
However,
the
former
captain
refused
the
offer
as
he
didn’t
want
to
travel
too
much.

While
explaining
the
reason
behind
the
delay
in
the
application
for
the
new
coach,
a
BCCI
official
told
The
Indian
Express,
“We
wanted
the
candidate
whom
we
feel
is
best
suited
for
the
job
to
agree
first
(to
apply
for
the
job).”

“We
don’t
want
a
situation
where
we
get
applications
but
no
one
is
seen
as
ideal.
It
will
be
embarrassing
for
the
board
and
for
the
candidates
too.
So
it’s
better
to
find
a
suitable
candidate
first,
till
then
Dravid
can
be
interim
coach,”
the
official
added
further.

The
tenure
of
India’s
bowling
coach
Bharat
Arun
and
fielding
coach
R
Sridhar
also
comes
to
an
end
after
the
T20
WC.

The
multi-format
series
between
India
and
New
Zealand
will
kick
off
the
international
cricket
season
at
home.
Team
India
will
host
New
Zealand
for
three
T20Is
and
two
Tests
at
home,
starting
November
17.

The
opening
T20I
will
be
held
on
November
17
at
Sawai
Mansingh
Stadium,
Jaipur.
The
second
T20I
will
be
held
played
at
JSCA
International
Stadium
in
Ranchi
on
October
19.
While
the
third
and
final
T20I
will
be
played
at
iconic
Eden
Gardens
on
November
21.

The
first
Test
between
the
two
sides
will
begin
from
November
25
at
Kanpur’s
Green
