Let us tell you that the tenure of current coach Ravi Shastri and his support staff will end after the T20 World Cup, but the BCCI believes that finding a new coach may take longer than expected, so the board wants the national Cricket Academy (NCA) chief Rahul Dravid will be in charge of the team for the home series against New Zealand, which starts on November 17, three days after the T20 World Cup. It is believed that players like Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami can be rested in this series and the BCCI can try the young players.
