Indian cricket team's coach Ravi Shastri made the announcement, addressing the media, stating that he had personally spoken to Dravid and Khan and the decision was taken with their consent. "We spoke to both individuals personally,they are fantastic cricketers, their inputs will be invaluable," said Shastri.

I was clear in my head about my core team and you have just heard that," Shastri told reporters after meeting the newly-formed four-member Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), comprising acting President C.K.Khanna, acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary, Committee of Administrators (CoA) member Diana Edulji and board CEO Rahul Johri, here.

The nature of the roles of Zaheer Khan and Rahul Dravid with the current Indian team is not clear yet. "All depends on their availability, it depends on individuals, the number of days they want to give but their inputs will be invaluable and they are most welcome. I have spoken to both of them personally," said Shatri.
