It was decided that there would be no open interview process and call for applications from interested candidates as originally planned. According to a BCCI official, a clause in the existing contract of Dravid allowed the Indian cricket board to extend his tenure without calling for fresh interviews.
“In Dravid’s contract, there is a line which states the BCCI can give an extension to him,” a BCCI official said.
Earlier, Dravid used to draw a little more than four crores for the 10-month contract he held for the similar role.
