The Cricket Advisory Committee allegedly conducted 40-minute interviews with Gautam Gambhir and WV Raman on Tuesday for the position of head coach for India. When asked questioned by CAC members Ashok Malhotra, Jatin Paranjape, and Sulakhshana Naik, both of the former India openers provided adequate responses. Zoom was used for the interview since Raman and Gambhir both favored virtual communication.

Zoom was also used by CAC chairman Malhotra, who joined the meeting despite being preoccupied with commentary responsibilities. The news agency claims that PTI Gambhir is the clear favorite to become the head coach. Before the BCCI makes the formal announcement on Wednesday, there will be further deliberation.

“Yes, Gambhir showed up for the CAC interview. Today was the first discussion round. Another round is anticipated tomorrow, a BCCI source informed PTI.

It was not immediately clear the nature of his interactions with colleagues Paranjape and Naik, as well as CAC members Malhotra. Bombay is home to both Paranjpe and Naik. The conversation is said to have centered on the three-year plan he has in mind, which calls for three ICC events in various formats.

A few preliminary concerns were posed by the CAC, mostly addressing the formation of distinct teams for various forms and the transition time in Indian cricket as superstar players like Mohammed Shami, Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja, and Virat Kohli approach the end of their careers.

“Gabbhir was questioned before Raman. Additionally, it was on Zoom,” the person informed PTI. “He also presented his plans for the future of Indian cricket. We had the interview for around forty minutes. Before reviewing the presentation, the committee asked several preliminary queries, the person said.

Both Raman and Gambhir provided excellent presentations on their plans to win ICC titles, insiders said HT. Although the CAC members were quite impressed with their presentations, Gambhir is probably going to have the upper hand.


The next head coach’s job will be to guide India through the World Test Championship from July 2024 to November 2027, as well as the yearly cycle of ICC white-ball competitions. Although Gambhir’s coaching credentials are strengthened by his achievement in leading Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) to the IPL 2024 championship, the rugged left-hander lacks any significant coaching experience outside of the IPL

Compared to Rahul Dravid, who advanced to international coaching after serving as an India U19 and A coach, Gambhir’s appointment would be different. However, there are advantages to recently departed cricket players becoming coaches. Gautam Gambhir, for example, last played for India in 2016 and retired in 2019.

In addition to his IPL coaching roles, the two-time World Cup champion is a frequent pundit and knowledgeable about the evolving needs of modern cricket. Following the IPL final on May 26, Gambhir met with BCCI secretary Jay Shah. After reaching an agreement in principle, Gambhir declined to accept any media jobs related to the upcoming World Cup.
