Dravid can join IPL team after World Cup, can get more money than Team India coach

New Delhi. After leading India to victory in the T20 World Cup, coach Rahul Dravid jokingly said that he is now unemployed. When Rahul Dravid said this, he and cricket fans knew that it is not possible for him to sit without work for even a day. This is what has happened. Team India has not yet found a coach to replace Rahul Dravid. On the other hand, Dravid has definitely received a big offer from the champion team of IPL. It is believed that Dravid can be the mentor of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). KKR is also the champion team of IPL 2024.

The contract of Indian team's head coach Rahul Dravid was only till June 29. This is why Dravid had joked about being unemployed. It was certain that he could get a big offer from IPL or foreign teams. But very few people would have guessed that this would happen so soon. According to media reports, KKR has offered Rahul Dravid to become a mentor. If Dravid accepts this offer, then in a way there will be a situation of exchange between KKR and Team India.

When KKR became the champion in IPL 2024, its mentor was Gautam Gambhir. As soon as the IPL ended, it was said that Gambhir could be the next coach of Team India. This is also going to be true. According to reliable sources, Gautam Gambhir's name has been finalized for the Indian coach. Its official announcement can be made in a few days.

If this happens, the roles of Gautam Gambhir and Rahul Dravid will completely change. Dravid will replace Gambhir, who was the mentor of KKR two months ago. At the same time, the responsibility that Dravid had 10 days ago will be given to Gautam Gambhir.

It is also being said that the Kolkata franchise is ready to pay the highest amount to include Rahul Dravid in their team. Rahul Dravid's annual contract as Team India's coach was Rs 12 crore. KKR is ready to pay Dravid an even bigger amount. According to the report, apart from KKR, 3 more teams have offered to include Dravid in their team.
