SL vs Ind – Rahul Dravid likely to coach India on Sri Lanka tour


He is expected to fill in for Ravi Shastri, who will be with the Test squad in the UK

Rahul Dravid is likely to tour Sri Lanka in July as the head coach of India’s limited-overs squads, ESPNcricinfo has learned. The BCCI is yet to make the formal announcement but Dravid is expected to tour Sri Lanka in the absence of head coach Ravi Shastri, bowling coach Bharat Arun and batting coach Vikram Rathour, who will all be with the Test squad in the UK from early June to late September for the WTC final and the five Tests against England.

India are scheduled to tour Sri Lanka for three ODIs and as many T20Is from July 13 to 27 with a second-string squad because 20 of India’s top players and four standbys will be in England at the time. Having coached several India A and Under-19 sides over the last few years, Dravid will already be familiar with numerous India players who are likely to be picked for the Sri Lanka tour.
