India lead trainer Rahul Dravid has assumed responsibility for the group in the United Arab Emirates for the Asia Cup crusade in the wake of recuperating from Covid-19, the nation’s cricket board (BCCI) said on Sunday.
India batting extraordinary Dravid tried positive on Tuesday before the group’s flight to the UAE for the six-group Twenty20 competition.
In Dravid’s absence, the BCCI appointed VVS Laxman, the director of Bengaluru’s National Cricket Academy, as a partner mentor.
Dravid “has tried negative for Covid-19 and has joined the group in Dubai” while Laxman has gotten back to Bengaluru, the BCCI said in an explanation.
