BCCI Secretary Jay Shah's Big New Coach Plan Revelation

The secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, Jay Shah, has confirmed that an advertisement to hire a new head coach will be released soon. Rahul Dravid, who has been the head coach of Team India since November 2021, saw his contract extended after the conclusion of the 2023 ODI World Cup. His current contract with the BCCI will end in June, when the Indian cricket team will also be involved in a T20 World Cup campaign.

Jay Shah has confirmed that Dravid can apply for the role if he wants to, but there will be no automatic extension like before.

The BCCI secretary said, "Rahul's tenure is only up to June. So if he wants to apply, he is free to do so.”

He further said, "We cannot determine whether the new coach will be Indian or foreign. It will be up to the CAC, and we are a global body. That decision will also be made by the CAC. There are many all-format players, like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Rishabh Pant, among others. Moreover, there is no precedent for such a situation in India."
