India head coach Anil Kumble did not accompany the cricket team, which left on Tuesday for West Indies for the limited-overs series. "That is why process was followed in Kumble's case", a BCCI official told the Indian Express.

The report, however, added that details regarding the contract are yet to be finalised.

Former Indian skipper Rahul Dravid will have to leave his Indian Premier League (IPL) contract if Board of Control for Cricket India (BCCI) to extend his tenure as the coach of the India A and U-19 sides.

Following Ramchandra Guha's strong-worded letter to BCCI panel chairman Vinod Rai after the former's resignation, Dravid was nearly caught in the middle of a conflict-of-interest issue.

"The CAC has approved the two-year extension and now everything depends on money to be paid to Dravid". Dravid, clearly not happy with the speculation, wrote to BCCI asking about clarity on the issue. Earlier, Dravid used to draw more than four crores for his 10-month contract in the same role.

Recently, there was a talk going around the legendary batsman due to the conflict of interest issue with the Lodha Committee recommendation.

Fearing more controversy, Dravid had also excused himself from the U-19 team selection meeting for the England tour.
