Rahul Dravid will continue as the coach of U19 & India A team for the next two years by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)
Even there was no fresh applicant invited for the post as because the board was already in a decision to renew his contract and extend his services for the nation and even Dravid loves doing the same as because he enjoys his part in the game which makes him even livelier
“It was an honour and privilege to have Rahul Dravid as Mentor of the Delhi Daredevils over the last two years. We truly enjoyed our association and nurtured some great young talent together. We are sad that he will not continue with us as Mentor as he chooses to serve India A as a coach. Being a true servant of Cricket he believes he still has a lot to give back to the game and help nurture young India talent. We wish him all the best,” read a statement from Daredevils.
“Rahul Dravid is known for the discipline and commitment he brings to the table. He has been successful in grooming the youngsters in the last two years. I wish him all the very best for his assignments with the two teams for the next two years,” Amitabh Choudhary, the BCCI acting secretary, said.
CK Khanna, the board’s acting president, said they are happy that Dravid has agreed to extend his services. “Over the last two years, Rahul Dravid has been instrumental in getting young talent into the mix who have proved their worth on the big stage,” he remarked. “We are glad to continue his services for the next two years and are sure that this is a bright sign for Indian cricket which will see many more young talents coming up in the future.”
Dravid’s next assignment will be India A’s tour of South Africa starting from July 26.
