Former Indian captain, Rahul Dravid was on Monday appointed as Head of Cricket at the National Cricket Academy (NCA), the BCCI announced.
Dravid was supposed to take over as NCA head from July 1 but his job at the India Cements caused the delay.
The Committee of Administrators (CoA) asked Dravid to relinquish his post as vice-president of India Cements or be on leave until he completes his tenure.
India Cements then sent him on leave to avoid conflict of interests.
“Mr. Rahul Dravid will oversee all cricket related activities at NCA and will be involved in mentoring, coaching, training and motivating players, coaches and support stuff at the NCA.” BCCI said in a statement.
“ Rahul Dravid will also work closely with the National men’s and women’s head coaches and coaches for India Development teams including India A, India Under 19, India under 23 teams, in the identification of key training and development objectives.”
The BCCI didn’t specify the tenure of appointment for Dravid, who will also be responsible for monitoring progress of the development teams and provide necessary inputs on the same to the senior men’s and women’s head coaches.
