Rahul Dravid, the former India batsman, may be asked by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to lead the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bangalore. The Board is expected to take important decisions at its annual general meeting (AGM), which would include the appointment of a new Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman and five vice-prasidents.

A BCCI official was quoted by Indian Express, “We are going to approach Dravid soon. He stays in Bangalore and will be retiring after the Champions League T20. Having someone of his stature run things will be a big boost for the NCA and Indian cricket.”

If BCCI asks Dravid and he agrees to take up the role, he would be the director of the NCA and responsible for grooming young talent at India’s premier cricket academy.
