Gautam Gambhir is set to take over as India‘s next head coach, as reported by Dainik Jagran following Rahul Dravid‘s tenure concluding after the 2024 World Cup. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is expected to officially announce Gambhir’s appointment later this week.

Reports suggest that the BCCI finalized the decision to appoint Gautam Gambhir as India’s head coach. The official announcement of this significant development concerning the Indian cricket team is eagerly awaited, believed to be contingent on India’s ongoing performance at the World Cup.

Gautam Gambhir, who previously captained the Indian cricket team, has been actively involved as a mentor for various franchises, including the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). His coaching experience and leadership, particularly in the IPL 2024 season with KKR, contributed to his rising prominence as a top coaching candidate.

During his tenure as LSG mentor, the franchise qualified for the playoff stages consistently. Moreover, under Gambhir’s mentorship, Kolkata Knight Riders secured victory in the recent IPL 2024, marking a significant achievement for the team.

Noteworthy is the fact that Gambhir reportedly made a ‘demand’ to be allowed to select his support staff, a request that was reportedly accepted by the BCCI. This privilege gives Gambhir the opportunity to shape his coaching team, similar to the alteration of the support staff when Rahul Dravid took over the head coach position.

Gautam Gambhir’s imminent announcement as India’s head coach signifies a notable shift in the top-tier coaching dynamic, propelling him into a key leadership role within Indian cricket. With the eagerly anticipated formal confirmation from the BCCI, Gambhir’s journey as India’s head coach is set to commence.
