The Board of Control for Cricket in India secretary Jay Shah hailed Team India's outgoing head coach Rahul Dravid by saying that the side has emerged as a "dominant force" across formats under his tenure.


Under Rahul Dravid, the "Men in Blue" won the T20 World Cup 2024 title in the USA and the West Indies. Additionally, India also managed to reach the finals of the World Test Championship and ODI World Cup 2023.

"I express my sincere thanks and gratitude to Mr Rahul Dravid whose highly successful tenure as the Head Coach draws to a close. Under his guidance, #TeamIndia emerged as a dominant force across formats, including being crowned ICC Men's T20 World Cup champions!," Shah wrote on 'X'. Taking to X:

"His strategic acumen, persistent efforts to nurture talent and exemplary leadership have instilled a culture of excellence within the team and that is also the legacy he leaves behind.

"The Indian dressing room today is one cohesive unit standing together through challenges while revelling in each other's success."

Rahul Dravid stepped in as India's head coach in late 2021 and stepped down after the conclusion of the T20 World Cup 2024. His tenure supposedly ended after the ODI World Cup 2023, but his and the support staff's contract later got extended.

Earlier in the day, India skipper Rohit Sharma also wrote an emotional thank you note to Dravid, expressing "gratitude" for his man-management skills and for leaving his baggage of stardom outside the dressing room.

After many speculations, the BCCI finally announced Gautam Gambhir as their new head coach. Currently, VVS Laxman has been appointed as temporary head coach for the five-match T20I series against Zimbabwe.

Gambhir who joined Kolkata Knight Riders as the mentor in the IPL 2024 also helped the side win the title.
