·3 min read

As reports emerge that Rahul Dravid can be the next head coach of the Indian cricket team, reactions have begun pouring in from the cricketing fraternity.

According to media reports, Dravid will be appointed as head coach of the Indian men's cricket team post the 2021 T20 World Cup, for a period of two years.

Dravid is currently heading the NCA in Bengaluru and wanted to continue in his current role. He also declined the earlier offers to coach the senior national team but BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah have managed to convince him to take the charge of the side till the 2023 ODI World Cup. He was also the coach of the India side that recently toured Sri Lanka for the ODI and T20I series

Former England captain Michael Vaughan reacted positively to the news, saying that "the rest of the world better beware," if the rumours hold true.

Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer also reacted to the speculation, saying that while earlier rumours said Dravid was staying on at the National Cricket Academy (NCA), reports now suggest he would be the next coach. Jaffer joked that the change happened because "Lord Shardul blew candles on his birthday cake wishing to be coached by Rahul bhai".

Similarly, others from the Indian cricket fraternity also welcomed the possibility of Dravid becoming the next India head coach.
