VVS Laxman is set to replace Rahul Dravid as the head coach of Team India following the ODI World Cup final loss against Australia. Dravid is not interested in extending his contract, clearing the way for his close friend Laxman to take over. Laxman, who currently heads the National Cricket Academy, has expressed his interest in the role and is expected to sign a long-term contract. His first assignment is likely to be the upcoming tour of South Africa. Dravid’s decision to step down comes after a remarkable two-year stint, during which India experienced several high and low points. Laxman’s appointment brings a fresh perspective to the team as they prepare for the South Africa tour. With several changes on the horizon, Indian cricket fans are eagerly anticipating the start of a new chapter under Laxman’s leadership.
