However, it’s still not clear whether he will be available for the entire five-match series against South Africa. InsideSport has learnt that Rahul Dravid was in favour of being available for the entire SA series and then joining the squad in England on June 21 before the red-ball warm-up match.

“Rahul wants to be available for the South Africa series. The idea was that he would be travelling with the England squad with Laxman taking charge of the South Africa series. But Rahul wants to oversee everything before flying out to England. We still have a few days and the itinerary should be clear in next few days,” the BCCI official said.
