End of Dravid as India coach?
Rahul Dravid has decided not to continue as the head coach of the India cricket team, claimed a report in Times of India.
According to the report, the legendary India cricketer has decided not to extend his contract, which ended with the World Cup where India lost to Australia in the final.
The report said that Dravid has communicated his decision to the BCCI already.
Dravid is set to be replaced by VVS Laxman, who is currently leading the team in the five-match T20I series against Australia starting today.
The report also quoted an unnamed source inside the BCCI who said that Laxman, who has helmed the coach's job temporarily in absence of Dravid, is keen on taking the role full-time and wants to sign a long-term contract.
Following the five-match T20I series against Australia at home, India will travel to South Africa to play a T20 series.
