Former Australian spinner Brad Hogg felt that the NCA head coach Rahul Dravid has done the right decision by reapplying for the same role at NCA to develop the youngsters. The National Cricket Academy at Bangalore is currently taken care of by Rahul Dravid and his tenure is set to come to end in a few days’ time.

However, there were a lot of doubts about whether he would continue as head coach of NCA or rather shift towards the Indian head coach position as Ravi Shastri’s tenure comes to end in November after the T20 World Cup. Also, Rahul Dravid travelled with the Indian side to Sri Lanka as head coach in absence of Ravi Shastri and did a great job winning the ODI series with youngsters.

NCA Coach A More Important Role Than The Indian Head Coach, Feels Brad Hogg

Brad Hogg tweeted on Twitter stating that Rahul Dravid should continue with the NCA head coach role and reckoned that the NCA head coach is more important than the India head coach concerning the growth of the youngsters. He added that Dravid has been one of the main reasons behind India’s excellent bench strength.

“The NCA coach is an important role for the growth and transition of upcoming players for international cricket. Probably a more important role that the Indian head coach. Countries with strong academies generally top the ICC ladders. Dravid must stay in that role. #cricket,” Brad Hogg Tweeted on Twitter.

No Applications Yet For Head Coach Role At NCA

BCCI invited applications for the role of head coach at the National Cricket Academy a few days back and so far they haven’t received any applications which is very strange. Rahul Dravid has reapplied for the post as his tenure is set to come to an end while his coaching role has been extended until they receive applications. BCCI also has extended the deadline for the applications as they haven’t received any yet.
