India’s New Head Coach Term: July 1st, 2024 – December 31st, 2027

Rahul Dravid’s tenure as India’s head coach is scheduled to conclude in June. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has initiated the process of seeking applications for the next head coach of the India men’s senior national team. This announcement marks the beginning of the search for Dravid’s successor. The BCCI aims to identify a qualified individual who will assume the important role of coaching the national team following Dravid’s departure later this year.

Time Period for India’s New Head Coach:

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced that applications for the head coach position of the India men’s senior national team must be submitted by 6 pm IST on May 27, 2024. This deadline falls on the day after the final match of IPL 2024. Interested candidates are required to adhere to this timeline for submitting their applications, as stated in the recent BCCI statement issued on Monday.

The incoming coach will serve a three-and-a-half-year term, beginning from July 1, 2024, and concluding on December 31, 2027. This tenure aligns with the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) standard coaching contracts for the national team. The selected coach will have the opportunity to lead the India men’s senior national team through various international tournaments and series during this period, shaping the team’s strategy and development over the coming years.

Previously, the BCCI had delayed inviting applications for the head coach until after the incumbent coach’s tenure had already ended. This left insufficient time to prepare for upcoming assignments. As a result, Rahul Dravid agreed to extend his coaching tenure until the T20 World Cup in June this year. This strategic decision allowed for a smoother transition and ensured continuity in coaching leading up to the important tournament.

Jay Shah’s Statement Regarding This:

Unlike previous instances, applications for the head coach position have been solicited before the team departs for the T20 World Cup. If Rahul Dravid wishes to continue as coach, he will need to reapply. Additionally, the selection of the remaining backroom staff will be made in coordination with the new head coach. BCCI Secretary Jay Shah recently mentioned that India is unlikely to adopt a format-based split for coaching roles, suggesting a unified coaching approach across all formats.

Jay Shah said, “We are looking for a long-term coach for three years. There is no precedent of different coaches for different formats in Indian cricket. Besides, we have a number of all-format players. Ultimately, it will be the Cricket Advisory Committee’s (CAC) call. I have to implement what they decide.”

The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) will also oversee the appointment of a new national selector, following the BCCI’s earlier advertisement in January for this position. The new selector is expected to replace Salil Ankola, representing the west zone on the selection committee. It is anticipated that the new member will be selected from the north zone, ensuring regional diversity within the selection panel. Jay Shah further said, “A few interviews for the selector’s post have already happened. The CAC will meet in a week’s time to finalise the name, and we will announce it soon.”
