The Cricket Advisory Committee announced on Wednesday that Rahul Dravid has been appointed as head coach of the Indian cricket team. Rahul Dravid will take charge from the upcoming series against New Zealand.

He has also proven himself as the head of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Indian cricket. Rahul's efforts at the NCA have cultivated a number of young cricketing prospects who have gone on to represent the country on the international level. I am confident that his new contract will propel Indian cricket to new heights, "said BCCI president Sourav Ganguly.

Rahul Dravid said "It is an amazing honour to be named the new Head Coach of the Indian Cricket Team, and I am really excited about this opportunity. The team has done extremely well under Ravi Shastri, and I intend to collaborate with the team to further this."

Having worked directly with the majority of the guys at the NCA, U19, and India A levels, I know they are driven to progress every day.
