Indian men's cricket team headed by Virat Kohli is set to herald into a new era, as a major revamp, awaits in the coaching division. Ravi Shastri, the current head coach is expected to bid GOOD-BYE to the Indian cricket team after the T20 World Cup. Along with Shastri, the support staff Bharat Arun (bowling coach), R Sridhar (fielding coach), and Vikram Rathour (batting coach) are also reportedly not interested in renewing their national contracts.

The BCCI is anticipated to invite applications for a new head coach after the mega event in UAE. Board has a cricket committee in place who will interview the shortlisted candidates and select India’s new Coaching Staff.

Some officials have pointed to Rahul Dravid as the best choice "Rahul Dravid could well reapply for the post but with Ravi Shastri’s tenure ending in November 2021 after T20 WC, there is every possibility of Rahul being elevated to head coach’s position. Bottom line, he remains very much a part of the system,” a BCCI source said.

The former Indian batsman was the head coach during the recently concluded tour Sri Lankan tour. Dravid who has done considerable work with the U-19 and ‘A’ teams and the NCA, is familiar with a host of players in the team. Dravid’s contract at the NCA itself expires in September, and a potential opportunity awaits for Mr Dependable.
