However, Shah did not rule out the possibility of a foreign coach and left the issue open, indicating that the board was unlikely to consider different coaches for different formats, a system similar to that in England and Wales cricket.

BCCI Secretary Jay Shah confirmed that the process of appointing the head coach of the Indian men's cricket team is set to begin in the coming week. Shah also said that if current head coach Rahul Dravid wants to extend his tenure, he can apply again for the post. Shah said during a conversation at the BCCI headquarters in Mumbai, "We will invite applications in the next few days, Rahul Dravid's tenure is ending in June. If he wants to apply again, he can for Batting, bowling and fielding." The coaching staff like coach will be decided after consultation with the new coach. Dravid was given a short-term extension till the T20 World Cup after his two-year contract expired following India's defeat in the ODI World Cup final last November. Shah also confirmed that the new head coach will be offered the charge till the ODI World Cup in 2027.

However, Shah did not rule out the possibility of a foreign coach and left the issue open, indicating that the board was unlikely to consider different coaches for different formats, a system similar to that in England and Wales cricket. It has been adopted by boards like Board of Control for Cricket in India (ECB) and even in Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). "We are looking for a long-term coach for three years, we cannot decide whether the new coach will be an Indian or a foreigner, it will depend on the CAC.

At the same time, according to a report, Dravid is not interested in continuing as the head coach of India. Besides, the three-member Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC), headed by former batsman Ashok Malhotra including Jatin Paranjape and Sulakshana Naik, will have to finalize the long-awaited appointment of a national selector and before that some interviews have already taken place, Shah said. He said, "Some interviews have already taken place for the selector post, the CAC will meet in a week to finalize the name and we will announce it soon."
