Rahul Dravid has been retained as India captain until the end of the 2007 World Cup in the West Indies, according to board secretary Niranjan Shah.

"The selectors decided this at a meeting on Friday night," Shah told reporters on Saturday.

The 33-year-old Dravid took over the captaincy from Sourav Ganguly in October last year and has been highly successful, especially in the one-day format.

He led India to a 6-1 triumph over Sri Lanka and drew 2-2 with South Africa in the subsequent one-day series at home and topped it with a 4-1 victory in the one-day series in Pakistan earlier this year.
