Not Rahul Dravid? BCCI wants a new head coach for developing a world class Indian cricket team



The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has officially invited applications for the next head coach of the men’s national team. Notably, the current head coach Rahul Dravid’s tenure came to an end after the ODI World Cup 2023 but was later extended until June given the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024 in the US and West Indies.

As per the BCCI, the new head coach will have a three-and-a-half-year tenure, starting immediately after the T20 World Cup and ending in December 2027, just after the end of the next ODI World Cup.

“Rahul Dravid can reapply”: BCCI to soon invite applications for new head coach

According to the announcement, BCCI secretary Jay Shah stated that, “The BCCI on Monday invited applications for the position of Head Coach of the Senior Men’s Team. Applications for the position should be submitted by 6PM IST on May 27, 2024. The selection process will include a thorough review of applications, followed by personal interviews and assessments of shortlisted candidates.”

Eligibility Criteria To Fill Applications for New Head Coach

The BCCI has said that to get eligible for the Team India head coach post, candidates should be under the age of 60, have played a minimum of 30 Tests or 50 ODIs and have held a similar position with a full-member Test nation for a minimum of 2 years.

The Indian Cricket Board has also made it clear that it is looking for one coach to lead Team India in all three formats, meaning that the BCCI doesn’t favour a split coaching system like the one adopted by the English and Pakistan Cricket Boards.

Explaining the responsibilities of the new head coach, they said, “The successful candidate will be responsible for developing a world-class Indian cricket team which delivers sustained success in all conditions and formats, inspiring current and future generations of cricketers and stakeholders with their approach to the game.”

Key Accountabilities of Head Coach as Mentioned by BCCI

The head coach will have overall responsibility for the performance and management of the Men in Blue in all three formats of the game. He will lead a team of specialist coached and support staff and will be responsible for defining their roles, their performance and ongoing development.

The head coach will be responsible for reviewing, maintaining and enforcing the disciplinary codes within the Indian team.

Why No More Rahul Dravid as Head Coach?

Secretary Jay Shah had already said that current head coach Rahul Dravid was also eligible to reapply. Meanwhile, the BCCI top executive also stated that he was unsure if the new head coach for India will be Indian or foreign.
