The current coaching staff, led by Ravi Shastri, is set to part ways with the Indian team post the conclusion of T20 World Cup 2021. As per reports, Rahul Dravid is the frontrunner to replace Shastri and the board officials have been in talks with him to apply formally for the role. Dravid has actively monitored the progress of India A and India U19 teams and has been serving as the Director of Cricket Operations at NCA, Bengaluru. He had joined India's second string team during their limited overs series in Sri lanka in July.
Meanwhile, Tom Moody, the former Australia all-rounder, too, has shown his interest to take up a full-time coaching role with the Indian team. Moody has been a much sought after coach in various global T20 leagues, and was at the helm for Sri Lanka during their run to the final at the 2007 World Cup in the Caribbean.
