Mumbai, May 14: Could have Rahul Dravid been asked to continue as Team India's head coach?

Though India missed the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 final in Ahmedabad against Australia, otherwise it has been a satisfying journey for Indian men's senior team under head coach Rahul Dravid. 

Agreed, after the ODI World Cup 2023, he has been given an extension till the upcoming ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024, but should he have been given another term.

Well, initially reluctant to accept the job, Dravid has been a very cool, composed, task master for Indian team. The team has achieved satisfactorily in all the tree formats during his tenure.

Irrespective of India's performance in the upcoming ICC Men's T20 World up 2024, should he be given another extension?

These questions may evoke mixed reactions. But if India win the T20 World Cup 2024, then majority may wish coach Dravid to continue.

But in between, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has invited applications for the position of Head Coach of the Senior Men's national team. The BCCI on Monday invited applications for the position of Head Coach of the Senior Men’s Team. Applications for the position should be submitted by 6 PM IST on May 27, the release said.

"The selection process will include a thorough review of applications, followed by personal interviews and assessments of shortlisted candidates," Jay Shah, Honorary Secretary, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said on Monday.

The candidate should have played a minimum of 30 Test Matches or 50 ODI’s; or be Head Coach of a full member Test Playing Nation, for a minimum period of two years; or Head Coach of an Associate member/IPL Team or Equivalent International League/First Class Teams. National A teams, for a minimum period of 3 years; or should have BCCI Level 3 Certification or equivalent; and should be below 60 years of age, the BCCI informed.

According to the job description given by BCCI, the successful candidate will be responsible for developing a world-class Indian cricket team which delivers sustained success in all conditions and formats, inspiring current and future generations of cricketers and stakeholders with their approach to the game.

"The Head Coach will have overall responsibility for the performance and management of the India Men’s team in all three formats of the game," the BCCI informed.

The Head Coach will lead a team of specialist coaches and support staff and will be responsible for defining their roles, their performance and ongoing development, the release said. The Head Coach will be responsible for reviewing, maintaining, and enforcing the disciplinary codes within the Indian Men’s team, it said.

Interestingly, the job description listed fans, broadcasters, media and national teams as external stakeholders with whom the Head Coach will have communication and working relations. The internal stakeholders with whom the Head Coach will have relations include BCCI office-bearers, CEO-BCCI and the men's senior selection committee.

Saying that the appointee will have high accountability towards the performance of team India, it said that the successful candidate will be an accomplished strategist with clear and ambitious plans for how to develop and build success for Indian cricket moving forward. They will need to demonstrate that they can create a winning culture and world-leading teams in all forms of the game.

If a new head coach takes charge, then it is also likely that the process for spotting present skipper Rohit Sharma's successor as India captain, might also be initiated after the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup. 

Rohit may continue for sometime as the Test captain, but he may have a successor in white -ball formats. Not unlikely, but can't be guaranteed as well. (With IANS support)
