Apart from this, we have many players who play in all formats like Rishabh Pant, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. This decision has to be taken by the Cricket Advisory Committee. Whatever decision he takes, I will implement it. If they say they want a foreign coach, I will not interfere. The committee consists of Jatin Paranjape, Ashok Malhotra and Sulakshana Naik".

Jai Shah said, 'Rahul Dravid's tenure is about to end. If he wants to continue in the post, he will have to apply again. We need a long-term coach, for three years'.

He said, 'Let me stay here in BCCI. Let there be speculation, but let me stay here. Am I not doing a good job?'
