Rahul Dravid, who is known as 'The Wall' will take over as Team India's new coach. During the Sri Lanka tour, Dravid will be coaching the team. The coaching trio of Ravi Shastri, Bharat Arun, and Vikram Rathour will be in England with the Test team.
This news came before the final team for the Lanka series was announced. Now, it is officially confirmed. "Team India's coaching staff will be in the United Kingdom, and it's best if the young team is led by an experienced cricketer like Dravid, who has worked with nearly all of India's "A" players. The warmth that the kids have with him would be a plus,” the BCCI official said.
