Rahul Dravid's big statement: "I haven't signed the contract yet..."

Rahul Dravid's tenure as the head coach of the Indian cricket team ended with the end of the ODI World Cup 2023. But after this, the Board of Control for Cricket in India decided to go ahead with Rahul Dravid and the board extended his term. The BCCI not only extended Rahul Dravid's tenure as head coach but also decided to give an extension to his support staff. However, the BCCI did not say how long Rahul Dravid's tenure has been extended. At the same time, Rahul Dravid has given a big statement about his second term.

On Thursday, a meeting of Rahul Dravid and team management was held in Delhi. This meeting was about the selection of Team India for the tour of South Africa. When former India captain Rahul Dravid arrived to attend this meeting, the journalists present there asked him questions about the World Cup review meeting and contract, Rahul Dravid said that he has not signed the agreement yet.

"It has been officially announced, I haven't signed the contract with the BCCI yet but the tenure has been discussed. Once I get the papers, I will sign it," he said.
