Rahul Dravid appointed New India Head Coach After ICC T20 World Cup

Rahul Dravid will succeed Ravi Shastri as head coach of the India men’s cricket team following the conclusion of the ICC Twenty20 (T20) World Cup.

Dravid’s two-year term will begin with India’s home T20 and Test series against New Zealand from 17th November.

India has endured a disappointing T20 World Cup campaign in the United Arab Emirates and Oman so far, and the pre-tournament favourites have suffered heavy eight and 10 wicket defeats to New Zealand and arch-rivals Pakistan respectively.

Dravid coached India A and India under-19 teams for four years from 2016 to 2019, with the latter side having reached two World Cup finals under his guidance – losing to the West Indies in 2016 and winning against Australia in 2018.
