Former Indian batsman VVS Laxman has reportedly accepted BCCI’s offer as NCA director, and he will now occupy the vacant position that Rahul Dravid had left after becoming India’s head coach. VVS Laxman has initially hesitated to take up the position as it needed him to shift from Hyderabad to Bangalore.

After BCCI had talks with him, Laxman had now agreed to take up the role of NCA head coach. He has already been the mentor for the Sunrisers Hyderabad side in the IPL, and his experience will be key to NCA grooming the youngsters.
