According to ESPNcricinfo, Rahul Dravid will assist in the preparation of the national team in England, where they will first play a four-day match against Leicester from June 24-27. He will then travel to Birmingham to play the rescheduled fifth Test against England from July 1-5. On the other hand, India will also play two T20Is against Ireland on June 26 and June 28. Dravid will join India’s tour party after the 5-match T20I series against South Africa ends on June 19.

Laxman is currently the Director of Cricket at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru. He took over the position last year after Rahul Dravid was appointed the head coach of the national team.

Laxman has also been involved in coaching as a batting consultant with IPL franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad and the Bengal home team. He was also in charge of India’s Under-19 World Cup winning team in West Indies.

The Indian selectors can choose different teams for both the tours. Meanwhile, India’s Test team is likely to leave for England on June 15.

The Birmingham Test was pushed back after the outbreak of COVID-19 in the Indian camp last year. India, currently leading the series 2-1, will seal their first Test series win in the country since 2007.
