According to reports, Rahul Dravid has reapplied for the position of Head of Cricket at the National Cricket Academy (NCA). Actually, his tenure as the head of the National Cricket Academy is about to end and the BCCI has invited applications for the same post.
Former cricketers are backing Rahul Dravid for getting another tenure of the coveted post as he is done an exceptional job at the NCA.
Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt also feels that Dravid has taken the right call if he has applied again for the post.
“By working with the NCA, Dravid is not serving only junior Indian cricket. He recently took a team to Sri Lanka and they won a series (ODIs) over there. He is preparing ready material and sending it to the Indian team. I would say he is heading an industry that is supplying players to Indian cricket. What more than that do you want?”
Earlier, former Australian spinner Brad Hogg had also backed Dravid for the post.
“The NCA coach is an important role in the growth and transition of upcoming players for international cricket. Probably a more important role than the Indian head coach. Countries with strong academies generally top the ICC ladders. Dravid must stay in that role. #cricket.”
