Rahul Dravid Appointed head coach of India


Rahul Dravid has been appointed the head coach of India’s men’s side, succeeding Ravi Shastri.

Former captain Dravid, who played 164 Tests and 344 one-day internationals between 1996 and 2012, is credited for India’s steady supply of young talent as head of the National Cricket Academy.

“The former India captain will take charge from the upcoming home series against New Zealand.”

Dravid said it was an “absolute honour” to take charge of the team.
