VVS Laxman to don head coach's hat during India's tour of NZ, Rahul Dravid rested after T20 WC debacle

Rahul Dravid, India’s head coach, has been rested for the team’s upcoming tour of New Zealand following the conclusion of the T20 World Cup, where they once again failed to advance past the semifinals. VVS Laxman will assume the role of coach for the white-ball tour of New Zealand during his absence.

Laxman is prepared to fill in for Dravid as head coach while the latter is away

Additionally, according to a PTI report, Hrishikesh Kanitkar and Sairaj Bahutule will travel with the team to New Zealand in the capacities of batting and bowling coaches, respectively. Prior to Dravid’s absence, Laxman, who took over as NCA president in December 2021, served as interim head coach for India’s second-string team during tours of Ireland that included two T20 Internationals, three ODIs in Zimbabwe in the middle of August, and a three-ODIs against South Africa last month. Additionally, Laxman led the Indian U-19 squad to victory in the 2022 ODI World Cup.

As a result, Laxman is prepared to fill in for Dravid as head coach while the latter is away. After India’s ten-wicket loss to England in the second semifinal of the ongoing T20 World Cup in Australia, the latter, who had a busy few months, was granted some time off.

In the meanwhile, starting on November 18, Hardik Pandya will captain the T20I lineup in a three-match series against Kane Williamson’s Black Caps. India will be led by Shikhar Dhawan in the three ODIs during the New Zealand tour.

Dravid is expected to return for India’s tour of Bangladesh

Dravid is expected to return for India’s tour of Bangladesh, in December, comprising two Tests and three ODIs.

The Indian T20I team consists of the following players: Hardik Pandya (captain), Rishabh Pant (VC & wicketkeeper), Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan, Deepak Hooda, Surya Kumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson (wk), W Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, Harshal Patel, Mo
