The Board of Cricket for India has made certain changes since the start of the Year. BCCI has created a roadmap for the upcoming ODI World Cup in 2023 which will be hosted in India, during the review meeting with Rahul Dravid (head coach), and Chetan Sharma (chief selector) which took place on 1st January 2023.
Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting has expressed surprised at Rahul Dravid’s decision to take over as the head coach of the Indian team considering that he has a young family. Dravid’s coaching stint with the Indian team began with the first T20I of the three-match series against New Zealand in Jaipur on Wednesday. India won the match by five wickets following a mini-stutter.
Indian batting coach Vikram Rathour admitted that the team was a bit distracted ahead of Day 4 of The Oval Test after they came to know that their head coach Ravi Shastri had tested positive for COVID-19. The BCCI informed on Sunday that the medical team had isolated Shastri, bowling coach Bharat Arun, fielding coach R Sridhar, and physiotherapist Nitin Patel as a precautionary measure after the head coach’s lateral flow test returned positive on Saturday evening.
