According to Ponting, Dravid has a lot to offer and the new crop of Indian cricketers will get to learn a lot from the veteran’s experience.

“I don’t think BCCI will find many better candidates than someone like him [Dravid]. If he’s interested in doing the job, he will do a good job. He’s got a lot of knowledge, is very experienced and understands all three formats,” Ponting said.

“He’s got a lot of knowledge, is very experienced and understands all three formats because he has worked in IPL. He will be a great candidate but it depends on what the BCCI thinks is the best fit for the Indian cricket team and also depends on what the captain wants. Whatever Virat (Kohli) wants around the Test team, I am sure the BCCI will listen to him,” he said.

Spin legend Anil Kumble is the current head coach of Indian cricket team. After achieving success in back to back Test series, establishing several records, Kumble will be the first choice while deciding the coach.

The famous trio of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and also Rahul Dravid will play a huge role in deciding India’s fate while selecting a new coach.
