Bombay: There will be many changes in the Indian team after the T20 World Cup. Captain Kohli will step down as captain of the T20 team and the team will also receive a new coach. The BCCI has been accepting applications for the bowling coach and field coach positions, including head coach. There was talk that after Ravi Shastri, former veteran Rahul Dravid could have a shot as head coach. But Dravid wasn’t interested. But according to recent information, Dravid has officially applied for the position.
Dravid had previously coached the Indian cricket team on a tour of Sri Lanka. At that time, India had also won. Since then, there has been a demand for Dravid to become the head coach of the main team. But Rahul Dravid, director of the National Cricket Academy, did not seize the opportunity. He was in this position because he wanted to work for the junior level player selection and improve his game. But now that Rahul has applied for the head coach position, VVS Laxman is likely to be appointed director of the National Cricket Academy.

You stop man as a bowling coach
Bowling coach Bharat Arun, who is on the coaching staff together with Shastri, will also step down. Former cricketer and fast pitcher Paras Mhambrey has applied for the position. On Monday he submitted his application to the BCCI, BCCI sources said. Mhambre has been associated with the National Cricket Academy for the past 20 years and is one of Rahul Dravid’s loyalists. According to a board official, Paras has applied for the position of bowling coach. The last date to apply is October 26 and Par is a very experienced coach and can be selected because he has worked for the U19 team.
The field coach will also change
Another important position in the coaching staff is the field coach. R Shridhar, who is currently the field coach, is also retiring and applications have been accepted to replace him. Former cricketer Abhay Sharma has applied for the position and is likely to replace Sridhar. Sharma has worked with India A, India U19 and the national women’s team. Meanwhile, Sridhar’s tenure will end after the T20 World Cup, when the 52-year-old Abhay could be appointed as a field coach with the Indian cricket team.
