Former Indian Player Rahul Dravid may continue as India A, U-19 coach


NEW DELHI: Former Indian team player Rahul Dravid is ready to carry on as U-19 India A coach for about two years. Rahul Dravid’s 10-month agreement had lapsed on 31 March, 2017.

The Cricket Advisory Committee including Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Sourav Ganguly – don’t have any issue with Dravid being set for two-year term period. Though, the former Indian captain will have to resign from the job of being a adviser for the IPL team Delhi Daredevils due to clashes of interest matters. The fiscal facet of Dravid’s agreement is yet to be decided.

Rahul Dravid has already required more clearness on the clashes of interest matter after former Committee of Administrators (CoA) member Ramchandra Guha, in his scornful resignation letter, had attacked the BCCI’s operation alongside alleging clashes of interest.

“Yes, I have written to the CoA explaining my position and explaining the background against which this perceived conflict of interest has happened,” Dravid stated.

“By the BCCI’s conflict of interest rules, I was absolutely not under a conflict of interest. If the rules have changed midway through the contract, then I think it is unfair to criticize me for breaking the rules or twisting the rules to suit my convenience,” he added.
