Why the BCCI needs Rahul Dravid

In his column in the Indian Express, Sandeep Dwivedi makes a case for the BCCI to hasten and bring Rahul Dravid on board in a coaching role.

For once, the board shouldn't drag its feet. Not only because Dravid is tailor-made for a coaching/ mentoring role, but also because others around the world know this fact. Andy Flower is to quit as England's team director this winter. Sri Lanka is looking for a coach. The Australian and South African teams are struggling with unsettled support staff after high-profile departures. So, when Dravid walked back to the dressing room for that final time last Sunday in New Delhi, the game's global head hunters would have taken notice.
