Former Indian batsman VVS Laxman is all set to replace Rahul Dravid as the NCA head coach as the BCCI had convinced him and the official confirmation might take place soon. Rahul Dravid was recently appointed the Indian head coach to replace Ravi Shastri and the NCA head coach position had become vacant.

The BCCI had invited applications, however, they wanted VVS Laxman to take over the position. After initial hesitations, the BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah have convinced Laxman to take up the job and BCCI will now have to appoint a bowling coach at NCA as well with Paras Mhambrey joining the Indian team.

Laxman’s Concerns Were Addressed Reckons BCCI Official

The BCCI official had revealed about VVS Laxman was not willing to take up the role earlier as he would have to move to Bangalore in that case. He added that there will be discussions on Laxman working in IPL as a mentor and the salary negotiations will also have to be completed.

“Laxman has been reluctant to move to Bengaluru as he was unsure of moving base from Hyderabad where his family is settled. However, he had multiple discussions with Ganguly and Shah after the IPL finished on October 15.

“His concerns were addressed. He will now discuss the offer with Sunrisers Hyderabad where he has been working as a mentor. The negotiations around his salary and other compensation will have to be completed now,” he added
