NEW DELHI: BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur today said that the cricket board will have to deliberate over Rahul Dravid's candidature before taking any decision on India's next coach but assured that the right person will be selected at the appropriate time.

With Ravi Shastri's contract as Team Director coming to an end after the completion of ICC World T20, Dravid's name has been doing the rounds for the job.

Thakur said: "I think media publishes many reports which are not even discussed at any level. Rahul Dravid has done extremely well as a player and he has been outstanding with India A and U-19 players.

"Before taking any call, we have to discuss that within BCCI that who we want to hire for the next 2 or 3 years till the 2019 World Cup and who could be best for Indian cricket. But I would like to assure you that we will pick the right person, at the right time," he said during an interaction with fans on a social networking site.

There were reports that BCCI's advisory committee, comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman, has approached Dravid, currently in charge of India A and India U-19 squads, for the top coaching job.
