The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Tuesday (November 28, 2023) said it has extended the contract of the Indian team's head coach Rahul Dravid.

"The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announces the extension of contracts for Head Coach Mr. Rahul Dravid and the Support Staff of Team India (Senior Men)," read the statement issued by the Indian Cricket Board.

Dravid's contract ended following the recently concluded World Cup.

"The BCCI engaged in productive discussions with Mr. Rahul Dravid after the term of his contract ended following the recently concluded ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 and unanimously agreed to further the tenure," the statement said.

"The Board also appreciates Mr. VVS Laxman for his exemplary roles as Head of NCA and as the stand-in Head Coach. Similar to their legendary on-field partnerships, Mr. Dravid and Mr. Laxman have worked closely in driving Indian Cricket forward," the statement said.

Roger Binny, President, BCCI, expressed his confidence on Dravid and said: "Mr. Rahul Dravid’s vision, professionalism, and unyielding efforts have been important pillars in Team India’s success. As Head Coach of the Indian Cricket Team, you are always under immense scrutiny and I extend appreciation to him not only for embracing the challenges but for thriving in them."

"The performances of the Indian Team are a testament to his strategic guidance. I am delighted that he accepted the offer to remain the Head Coach, and it speaks of the mutual respect and shared vision between him and the BCCI. I have no doubt that under him, the team will continue its march to the pinnacle of success and set new benchmarks along the way," he said.

Dravid said his team will remain committed to the pursuit of excellence following the World Cup.

India lost to Australia in the World Cup final this month.
