As per sources, Rahul Dravid is not keen to continue as India coach, and VVS Laxman may take over

The head coach of Team India Rahul Dravid is not keen on extending his contract as the head coach of the Indian men's cricket team, with National Cricket Academy chief VVS Laxman likely to take over from him. Sources have confirmed that Dravid, whose contract ended following the conclusion of the ODI World Cup last week, has decided not to continue as the head coach of the Indian team. Last week, India were beaten in the World Cup final at the expense of Australia.

Sources have also confirmed that the former batsman of Team India and former teammate of Dravid Laxman is likely to take on the role of head coach. Laxman has been named as the designated head coach for the five-match T20I series against Australia, starting later on Thursday.

Dravid was appointed head coach of the team, having also served as the head of the NCA, in 2021 after the campaign of team India came to an early end in the T20 World Cup in the UAE.
