Ravi Shastri has said it yet again that he has absolutely no problems in working with the former India captain Rahul Dravid if he wants to join the Indian team as the batting consultant.

"I'm very clear about that. Rahul can bring great advantages and we all know that. If he can decide on how he can divide his time and let the BCCI know when he can be available, I am all for it," Shastri told media.

Shastri was also asked about Zaheer Khan the other former India player whose name has been suggested by the CAC as the bowling coach.

Ravi Shastri said he's fine if he meets all conditions as required by the BCCI and can be invited as and when required. Shastri has made it clear that he means no disrespect to any individual who can add value to the Indian cricket team.

I have myself given this a serious thought. It's a long way forward - two years - and there's going to be a lot of planning required in terms of inviting consultants from time to time," he says.

Dravid who has been a part of the Delhi Daredevils coaching team has quit the IPL team and will not be having any conflict of interest and take any role with the national team as and when required.
