Indian Test captain Virat Kohli said it would have been “amazing” to have former captain Rahul Dravid in the BCCI’s newly-constituted cricket advisory committee, which will be guiding the national team.
“It would have been amazing if all four would have been on board. (But) he (Dravid) must have had some obligation or commitment,” Kohli said on the sidelines of a promotional event here.
The BCCI advisory committee comprises retired batting greats Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman.
Dravid’s absence from the panel raised a few eyebrows but BCCI made it clear that it was looking to get the former captain’s services in some other capacity, which has not yet been announced.
The advisory committee has been mandated to guide the Board and the national team on various “progressive steps” needed for future challenges.
The BCCI said the three legends’ guidance will be sought in preparing the national team for gruelling overseas assignments besides strengthening the domestic structure.
