Rahul Dravid has chosen India over Indian Premier League, and will continue as coach of the country's 'A' and U-19 teams for the next two years, at the expense of mentoring IPL franchise Delhi Daredevils.
The BCCI yesterday announced that the former India captain will continue to work as coach of India 'A' and U-19 teams. Dravid was first appointed as coach for the two teams in 2015. He was appointed mentor of Delhi Daredevils in March 2016. Earlier, it used to be a 10-month contract for the national team, and a two-month window for IPL.
The contract extension comes in the wake of historian and former CoA member Ramchandra Guha's allegations about national coaches moonlighting for IPL franchises.
"Over the last two years, Rahul Dravid has been instrumental in getting young talent into the mix who have proved their worth on the big stage," BCCI acting president CK Khanna said.
