Rahul Dravid appointed as India Men’s Head Coach

Former Kent and India star Rahul Dravid has been confirmed as the Head Coach of Team India (Senior Men). The former India captain will take charge from the upcoming home series against New Zealand.

Indian cricket’s governing body, the BCCI, announced the former right-hander as Men’s Head Coach on Wednesday.

Dravid made 33 appearances for Kent in the 2000 season, averaging 49.55 with the bat in a stint that included three centuries. His Kent top score of 182 came against a touring Zimbabwe side in a four-day match at The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence.

On being appointed as India’s Head Coach, Dravid said: “It is an absolute honour to be appointed as the new Head Coach of the Indian Cricket Team and I am really looking forward to this role.

“Under Ravi Shastri, the team has done very well, and I hope to work with the team to take this forward.

“Having worked closely with most of the boys either at NCA, U19 and India A setup, I know they have the passion and desire to improve every day.

“There are some marquee multi-team events in the next two years, and I look forward to working with the players and the support staff to achieve our potential.”
