Except Dravid, all three of the famous four have been appointed by the BCCI and according to sources, BCCI has a important role in mind for the former India captain.

"For any cricketer of that stature, BCCI would like to have their services," board secretary Anurag Thakur said. "When the time comes, an announcement will be made. Not everybody can be on the same panel."

It's quite possible that the Indian cricket board might replace Duncan Fletcher with Rahul Dravid. His appointment as coach of Indian cricket team also makes sense as three Indian legends will oversee the team’s development and Dravid’s appointment will make the coordination and implementation smoother. 'Fab four' will again be seen working together.

"With the time constraints and the time required to do the coaching job — nearly 11 months in a year — it is extremely hard to devote that kind of time... Time permitting, may be I will coach India A or India U-19...not really the Indian coaching job at this point of time," Dravid has said in the recent past.

Indian cricket was struggling at the bottom of the barrel in 2000. After Sachin Tendulkar quit captaincy Ganguly was made captain and Dravid was his deputy. They both took Indian team to greater heights in the coming years. This Indian team challenged the world’s best side Australia in their own den and they often got the better of the opposition. Ganguly’s strategies, aggression and expressive leadership helped, while Dravid’s calm behaviour complemented that brilliantly.

Moreover, accepting India's coach job will mean that Dravid will have to give up his mentorship of the IPL team Rajasthan Royals. After his retirement from international cricket, Dravid has done a wonderful job as a player and mentor of Royals in the IPL.

Dravid also had a short stint as mentor of the Indian team before the series in England last year and several players spoke highly of their interactions with the former India captain.

Former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar also suggested that Test legend Rahul Dravid should be Team India's next coach. Former spinner Maninder Singh too feels that Dravid is the right man for the job.

Even Bishan Singh Bedi feels that someone must be given a chance to check if he is good enough. “What Fletcher is doing nobody knows. I think we have some really talented people like Dravid and Sourav and we should give these people a try. It is not that we need only foreign people to coach Team India,” he said.
