BCCI secretary Jay Shah held a private meeting with Rahul Dravid in Miami; Asia Cup, WC in focus: Report

Jay Shah, the BCCI secretary, is said to have met with India head coach Rahul Dravid in Miami during the T20I series against the West Indies.

The special meeting is thought to have taken place in order to discuss key competitions such as the Asia Cup and the ODI World Cup.

According to, the meeting took place before of the final two Twenty20 Internationals of the five-match series, which India lost 2-3. The fourth and fifth Twenty20 Internationals were contested in Florida.

According to the source, Shah was in the United States on a personal visit and may have discussed the upcoming big events with the Indian head coach.

The discussion takes place against the backdrop of Men in Blue's lacklustre performance, which has resulted in widespread criticism owing to low outcomes.

Shah has made it obvious that the BCCI is determined to win the World Cup, which will be held in India in a few weeks.

Several issues have been made about Dravid's ability as a coach amid all of the criticism. India remains a powerful side in bilaterals, but they have been lacklustre in multi-nation competitions.

Former players and commentators such as Sunil Gavaskar, Venkatesh Prasad, and Wasim Jaffer criticised the team's performance during the West Indies series, raising concerns over team selection and bowler deployment.

Venkatesh expressed his displeasure with Dravid's leadership and noted the team's'very ordinary' performance in white-ball cricket for some time.

India will play a three-match T20I series against Ireland beginning on Friday, with Jasprit Bumrah expected to make his comeback after a lengthy injury layoff. Bumrah will manage a young group that includes Yashasvi Jaiswal and Tilak Varma, among others, with Ruturaj Gaikwad serving as his deputy.

Following the T20Is, India will hold a camp in Bengaluru in preparation for the Asia Cup.
