, 3:30 PM IST

New Delhi: Senior India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh today said former captain Rahul Dravid is ideal to be the next chief coach of the Indian cricket team with Zaheer Khan as the bowling coach.

“If you ask me, then I would like to see Rahul Dravid as India coach and Zaheer Khan as our bowling coach. I believe they can make a difference with their experience. But this is my opinion. There are people who will decide on this matter,” Harbhajan told media persons during a promotional event, here today.

Asked about Virat Kohli recommending Daniel Vettori’s name, Harbhajan said that the New Zealander can also be a good choice.

“Yes, Vettori can also be a good choice. I believe between these three, anyone could be a good choice,” India’s third highest wicket-taker in Tests said.

BCCI is yet to announce the replacement for Ravi Shastri after his tenure ended post ICC World Twenty20 2016.
