BCCI confirmed a contract extension for India’s head coach Rahul Dravid and the support staff, ensuring continuity after the culmination of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has confirmed the extension of contracts for India’s coaching staff, retaining Rahul Dravid as head coach alongside other key members, such as batting coach Vikram Rathour, bowling coach Paras Mhambrey, and fielding coach T Dilip. While the contract’s duration remains unspecified, indications suggest Dravid will likely continue until at least the T20 World Cup 2024.

Following the conclusion of the World Cup 2023, the BCCI engaged in constructive talks with Rahul Dravid regarding his contract extension, unanimously deciding to prolong his tenure as India’s head coach. Dravid’s upcoming commitments include India’s tour of South Africa, encompassing three T20Is and three ODIs, succeeded by two Tests starting in December. Subsequently, India is set to host a five-Test series against England before the T20 World Cup in June.

Initially appointed in November 2021, Dravid’s two-year contract concluded after the 2023 ODI World Cup, where India emerged as runners-up in both the World Test Championship and the ODI World Cup, solidifying Dravid’s successful coaching tenure over the past two years.

“Mr. Rahul Dravid’s vision, professionalism, and unyielding efforts have been important pillars in Team India’s success. As Head Coach of the Indian Cricket Team, you are always under immense scrutiny and I extend appreciation to him not only for embracing the challenges but for thriving in them. The performances of the Indian Team are a testament to his strategic guidance. I am delighted that he accepted the offer to remain the Head Coach, and it speaks of the mutual respect and shared vision between him and the BCCI,” said the BCCI president, Mr. Roger Binny.

Dravid also expressed immense satisfaction with the past two years alongside Team India, underlining the camaraderie and support within the squad.

“The last two years with Team India have been thoroughly memorable. Together, we have witnessed the highs and lows, and throughout this journey, the support and camaraderie within the group have been phenomenal., I am genuinely proud of the culture we have set in the dressing room. It’s a culture that stands resilient, whether in moments of triumph or adversity. The skills and talent that our team possesses are phenomenal, and what we’ve stressed is following the right process and sticking to our preparations, which has had a direct impact on the overall result,” Dravid said.
