Batting legend Rahul Dravid was on Saturday named as the coach of the India ‘A’ and Under-19 teams by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
The development was confirmed by BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur at a press conference after a board meeting here on Saturday.
Thakur also said that Karnataka’s right-handed batsman Lokesh Rahul won’t be travelling with the Indian team to Bangladesh for its upcoming tour against the neighbouring country due to an injury. An immediate replacement was not named by the BCCI.
India are scheduled to play a Test match and three One-Day Internationals (ODIs), starting with the five-day match on June 10. (IANS)
