The Indian cricket team is all set to start their tour of Ireland in the T20I series. Head coach Rahul Dravid has been given a rest for the assignment. VVS Laxman will also not be touring with the boys. In the absence of them, the young Indian team will see former domestic player Sitanshu Kotak taking up the role of the head coach. Kotak is presently the head coach of the India A team at the NCA. Laxman was supposed to be the head coach of the Indian team on the tour of Ireland but his next task is to oversee a high-performance training camp near Bengaluru. The camp will last for three weeks. That's why he will be unavailable for the Ireland T20Is that begin on August 18.

"Kotak and Sairaj Bahutule (bowling coach) will travel with Jasprit Bumrah & Co for the three-match T20I series (from August 18-23). As VVS Laxman will conduct the high-performance camp from August 16 to September 5, for which youngsters like Abhishek Sharma, Dhruv Jurel, Riyan Parag, Prabhsimran Singh, Sai Sudarshan, Akash Singh, Rajvardhan Hangargekar and Divyansh Saxena have been called up by the BCCI," A source said.

The series will only feature T20Is, but it will be important for the Indian team management. Japrit Bumrah is returning and he will lead the team. India will also feature exciting young guns like Ruturaj Gaikwad, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rinku Singh, Jitesh Sharma, etc. Sitanshu has experience of coaching the India A team for two years. The Ireland opportunity will allow him to work with some of the future Indian superstars.
