Former India captain Rahul Dravid was named Head of Cricket at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) on Monday, the BCCI has announced.
Dravid would take over the head of the NCA from July 1, but his job with the India Cements caused the delay.

The Committee of Directors (CoA) asked Dravid to give up his position as vice-president of India Cements or to take leave until he has completed his term of office.
India Cements then sent him on leave to prevent a conflict of interest.
"Mr. Dravid will oversee all cricket related activities at NCA and will be involved in mentoring, coaching, training and motivating players, coaches and support staff at the NCA," BCCI said in a release.

The BCCI has not specified the appointment period for Dravid, which will also be responsible for monitoring the progress of the development teams and must provide the necessary input for this to the senior men's and women's head coaches.
