IND vs NZ Live: Rahul Dravid reaches Jaipur – India’s newly appointed head coach Rahul Dravid reached Jaipur on Friday ahead of the New Zealand series from November 17. The former India skipper who took charge after Ravi Shastri’s tenure ended is yet to have his support staff for the series.

InsideSport has learnt that the new bowling and fielding coaches have been selected and will join Dravid on November 13 and will begin three-day quarantine in Jaipur. Paras Mhambrey and T Dilip will take charge as the bowling and fielding coaches. But the BCCI is yet to announce the names. The reason? CAC’s snub of Rahul Dravid.
