As the Indian Express reported, BCCI convinced Rahul Dravid to apply for the head coach position with Ravi Shastri’s tenure getting over next month. While the Board is confident that Dravid – who is now the head of National Cricket Academy – will take up the role, it will be interesting to see if Dravid actually applies for the position.
As per requirement, the successful candidate will be an accomplished strategist with clear and ambitious plans for how they will develop and build success for Indian cricket moving forward. “They will need to demonstrate that they can create a winning culture and world leading teams in all forms of the game,” the BCCI circular said.
“The Head coach should be an outstanding communicator and man manager. Their focus will be on managing a competitive, highly skilled and self-reliant Indian team and an elite performance environment that demands exceptional standards of professionalism.”
