As per the report, “Extension On Table But It's Team India vs IPL For Rahul Dravid”

The BCCI is likely to offer another two-year contract to the head coach of Indian cricket team Rahul Dravid, but, as of now, the governing body wants him to guide the team during the tour of South Africa as the modalities are being worked on. Dravid, under whose coaching India finished runners-up in both the World Test Championship and the ODI World Cup, has had a good record in the past two years, and many people in the BCCI believe that keeping him would allow the senior team to have continuity.
As per the statement of a senior BCCI office-bearer, “The BCCI secretary, Jay Shah, has had discussions with Dravid during the last week. Obviously, the fine print of the new contract is yet to be worked out.
“But BCCI wants Dravid to go to South Africa with the Test team.”
So, will he be ready to go on one tour without signing the contract?
The source further said, “The contract will be worked out, but the Test series is important, and even if he doesn't go for the T20I series in SA, he can join the team from the ODIs.”
