Gautam Gambhir set to become the Indian Mens' team coach 

The main reason some of the biggest foreign names associated to succeed Rahul Dravid following the T20 World Cup 2024 turned down the application offer was that it would take over ten months to complete the trip, meaning they would be away from their families for nearly a year. In addition, considering India’s lack of an ICC trophy, the head coach of the men’s cricket team in India is under a lot of pressure.

It will be more difficult for Gautam Gambhir to commit to the Indian team until the end of the 2027 ODI World Cup than it was to relocate the team’s base from Lucknow SuperGiants to Kolkata Knight Riders in time for the 2024 IPL season, despite the fact that he is the overwhelming favorite to lead India as head coach. During his tenure as an IPL coach, Gambhir pursued a number of career paths, including working as a cricket analyst for a television network. Nevertheless, when he signs the BCCI contract to become head coach, he will not be allowed to hold more than one professional role.

Gambhir’s Prospective Role with Team India


But it seems Gambhir has made up his mind. According to a Cricbuzz story, he has told people close to him that he wants to take up the India job. In fact, co-owner of KKR Shah Rukh Khan is well aware of it. However, because Monday was the deadline for submitting a formal application, the newspaper was unable to confirm if Gambhir had done so.

The website was informed by a highly prominent IPL franchise owner who has strong links with senior BCCI officials that Gambhir’s appointment as head coach is all but certain, with a formal announcement planned for the near future. Cautious about the BCCI’s tactics, a well-known expert said that the board is making every effort to bring in the 2011 ODI World Cup winner.

During KKR’s IPL title triumph in Chennai, BCCI secretary Jay Shah took some time away from the action to have a serious conversation with star player Gautam Gambhir. The pair was seen chatting at the Chepauk.
