Dravid’s tenure as the head coach has witnessed notable triumphs, including guiding Rohit Sharma-led team to the finals of the World Test Championship and the ODI Cricket World Cup. BCCI, in a statement, expressed their satisfaction with Dravid’s performance and unanimously agreed to extend his tenure, along with the support staff.

Despite the official extension, the contract duration remained undisclosed in the press release. BCCI Secretary Jay Shah, in a recent statement to PTI, stated, “We have given the extension but we are yet to finalise the contract. We did not get time at all, they finished (with the World Cup). I had a meeting with them (Dravid & Co.) and we agreed mutually that they will continue. We will sit down and decide once they return from South Africa.” This statement comes as Indian cricket team gears up for South Africa tour, which commences on December 10.

Dravid, entering his second stint with team India, has a packed schedule ahead, including series against South Africa, England, Afghanistan, and the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. The announcement of the contract extension came after India’s commendable runners-up finish in the ICC Cricket World Cup at home.

Before departing for South Africa tour, Dravid, when asked about his contract duration, responded, “It’s announced officially, I haven’t signed anything yet (on contract duration), let the papers come officially from the BCCI.”
