Bangalore: Rahul Dravid is one of the most respected players in Indian cricket. Be it an active cricketer or a coaching career, Dravid has earned respect in the entire cricketing world for his work. The former India captain has been working as the head of the National Cricket Academy for the last two years and has reapplied for the position after the contract expires. While the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has created fresh applications for the vacant position, Dravid is the only candidate to apply for the post.
A BCCI source told PTI on condition of anonymity, “Yes, Rahul has applied for the post of head of cricket again. You don’t need a genius to guess that Rahul Dravid will continue to work. Dravid has done a wonderful job in the NCA, which has become a center of excellence. The great thing is that apart from Rahul Dravid, no name of this level has surfaced, who has reapplied for the post.
In view of such a situation, the BCCI has extended the application deadline, whose last date was earlier 15 August. The source said, “The BCCI officials have extended the deadline to August 15. When Rahul Dravid is the candidate, everyone knows that applying for this position means little. It is just a formality for the people. There is definitely a few more days if anyone feels that he can apply for this post.
Meanwhile, Kolkata Knight Riders players Varun Chakraborty, Shubman Gill and Kamlesh Nagarkoti have returned to the NCA. These players will complete the rehab process before the IPL 2021 season. The source said, “Yes Chakraborty and Nagarkoti are doing their rehab cum fitness routine at the NCA. I think once the NCA gives him a fit certificate, then he will leave for UAE with the KKR team. Gill is still training.
