Rahul Dravid has held the position of head of cricket at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru for almost two years but since he stepped down from the job, the BCCI is in search of applications for the same.
The position will be occupied for a period of two years, and the person appointed will report to the BCCI’s secretary during that time. It has been stated by the authority that the former Indian cricketer can reapply if he desires.
On Tuesday, the BCCI posted a routine advertisement for the role but that post raised questions regarding Dravid’s future and his potential promotion to the Indian team after a decent tour of Sri Lanka as head coach. In November, India’s T20 World Cup campaign comes to an end along with Ravi Shastri’s tenure as head coach.
Looking out for “all cricket coaching” programs at the academy and for “preparation, development and performance” of all cricketers attending training is the responsibility of the NCA head.
NCA head looks upon the development of emerging and youth cricketers, both male and female, who are sent to the academy and is someone who works closely with the national and other cricket coaches in India.
