"I have not yet signed anything as yet, once I get the papers, we will see...: news agency ANI reported quoting Dravid.

Earlier on Wednesday, the BCCI announced the extension of the contract of head coach Rahul Dravid and the support staff of Team India in order to maintain continuity.

"The BCCI engaged in productive discussions with Dravid after the term of his contract ended following the recently-concluded World Cup and unanimously agreed to further the tenure," it added.

BCCI secretary Jay Shah said that Dravid will have "full backing" of the board, moving forward in his endeavour to win the ICC Trophy, which is missing from the cabinet for the last decade.

"Having won 10 consecutive games before the final, our World Cup campaign was nothing short of extraordinary, and the head coach (Dravid) deserves appreciation for setting up the right platform for the team to flourish.

"The head coach has our full backing, and we will provide him with all the support needed for sustained success at the international level," Shah said in a statement.

It is believed that Dravid’s stint with team India would be at least till the T20 World Cup in the West Indies and the USA in June-July next year.
