Massive update on VVS Laxman’s appointment as Indian Coach

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is on the lookout for a new Head Coach for Team India Men, as Rahul Dravid’s tenure is set to conclude after the T20 World Cup 2024. Despite strong support from players, Rahul Dravid is unlikely to reapply for the position due to personal reasons, and VVS Laxman is also unlikely to apply.

Rahul Dravid, who currently coaches the Indian team, was widely expected to continue in the role. However, recent developments suggest otherwise. Dravid has reportedly informed the BCCI that he will not reapply for the job as he wants to spend more time with his family, a decision he made even before the start of IPL 2024.

Dravid led India to the final of the ODI World Cup 2023, where they narrowly missed out on the title to Australia. Despite players’ requests for him to continue as Head Coach, Dravid seems determined to step down. According to BCCI policies, India will have one coach for all formats, and the next coach’s tenure will last until the end of 2027.

While there was speculation that VVS Laxman, who previously coached the Indian team to a gold medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games 2023, might be a natural choice, reports suggest that he is unlikely to apply for the position. The BCCI is reportedly considering overseas options, with Justin Langer believed to be a contender. However, the situation remains fluid, and no decisions have been finalized yet.

The selection of India’s next Head Coach is a crucial decision that will shape the team’s future, with the chosen candidate expected to lead the team through a busy international schedule and major tournaments in the coming years.
