India will get a new coach after the World Cup… This legend will get the chair in place of Dravid!

Indian cricket team coach: India is currently hosting the ICC ODI World Cup 2023. India won all five of its matches in the tournament. Rahul Dravid is the head coach of the team. After this, India has to play T20 series against Australia. Meanwhile, Rahul Dravid will not hold the post of coach of the Indian team.

Series immediately after the World Cup

After the World Cup, India has to play a T20 series against Australia. National Cricket Academy (NCA) chief VVS Laxman will be the coach for this series. Laxman is likely to be in charge of the Indian team during the T20 series against Australia. Rahul Dravid’s contract as the head coach of the Indian team expires at the end of the ICC World Cup. The T20 series against Australia will start from November 23 in Visakhapatnam.

Will Rahul do this again?

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will have the option to request the former Indian captain to reapply as BCCI has to invite applications again for this post as per the rules. It will be interesting to see whether the 51-year-old Dravid wants to continue as the head coach of the national team as the responsibility entails a lot of travelling. There is constant pressure also. There is a possibility that Dravid, who has coached teams like Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals in the IPL, may make a comeback in the T20 league which now features 10 teams.

Suryakumar Yadav has not been given rest

There is every possibility that the entire team, except Suryakumar Yadav, may be rested after traveling more than 10,000 kilometers in the country during the World Cup. He said, “Whenever Rahul has taken a break, VVS Laxman has been the coach. The same is expected to continue in this series to be held immediately after the World Cup. If applications are invited for the new coach, Laxman will be a strong contender as the BCCI has devised a process in which the NCA is in charge and makes all the arrangements. The person with the information is groomed for the role.

Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli

The T20I squad against Australia will mostly include players who were part of the Asian Games squad apart from the series against West Indies and Ireland. Senior players like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul and Jasprit Bumrah are likely to be rested so that they can be fresh for the series against South Africa. India has to play 3 T20, 2 Test and 3 ODI matches against South Africa. If Laxman is given the responsibility then Sitanshu Kotak will be the batting coach. He is also expected to coach India A on the South Africa tour.
