Rahul Dravid will coach the Indian cricket team for the Sri Lanka Short Series, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Chairman Sourav Ganguly has confirmed. “Rahul Dravid will be the coach of the Indian tour in Sri Lanka,” Ganguly told The Indian Express.
The Indian team for the Sri Lanka tour began their 14-day institutional quarantine in Mumbai on Monday.
Dravid has coached the Indian Under-19 and India A teams over the past few years and developed India’s bench strength.
Although it seems almost certain that the UAE will host the IPL in September, Ganguly said the board of directors wrote to the Indian government for a tax exemption and the decision to host it in India or the United States. United Arab Emirates would be taken later.
“We have written to the Indian government on the tax exemption. We are awaiting their response. We still have time. The board of directors will soon take a decision on this matter, ”he explained.
Although the Indian board of directors has not made it official, they have also started work on the logistics of the UAE hosting the T20 World Cup and Oman hosting the championships qualifiers. We learn that the BCCI has blocked hotel reservations for the World Cup. The International Cricket Council (ICC) and the Indian Board of Directors have already approached Oman to host the World Cup qualifiers.
