Dravid named Head of Cricket at NCA

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Former India captain Rahul Dravid was on Monday appointed as Head of Cricket at the National Cricket Academy (NCA), the BCCI has announced.

Dravid was to take over as NCA head from July 1 but his job at the India Cements caused the delay.

The Committee of Administrators (CoA) asked Dravid to relinquish his post as vice-president of India Cements or be on leave until he completes his tenure.

India Cements then sent him on leave to avoid conflict of interest.


“Mr Dravid will oversee all cricket related activities at NCA and will be involved in mentoring, coaching, training and motivating players, coaches and support staff at the NCA,” BCCI said in a release.


“Dravid will also work closely with the National men’s and women’s Head coaches and coaches for India Developmental teams — including India A, India Under-19, India Under-23 teams, in the identification of key training and development objectives,” the release added.

The BCCI did not specify the tenure of appointment for Dravid, who will also be responsible for monitoring progress of  the developmental teams and provide necessary inputs on the same to the senior men’s and women’s head coaches.
