Gautam Gambhir appointed as new Head Coach of Indian Cricket Team

Former Cricketer Gautam Gambhir appointed as the new Head Coach of the Indian Men’s Cricket Team. Earlier on 1 July, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah had confirmed that Team India’s new head coach will join the side for the upcoming Sri Lanka series.

The Men in Blue are due to tour Sri Lanka for a three-match T20I series and three ODIs which will kick off on July 27.

Head coach Rahul Dravid’s tenure came to an end after the end of the final match of the T20 World Cup 2024, where India defeated South Africa by seven runs to win the prestigious trophy after 17 years and ending the drought for an ICC trophy.

Announcing the new development, Shah took to X and wrote, “It is with immense pleasure that I welcome Mr @GautamGambhir as the new Head Coach of the Indian Cricket Team. Modern-day cricket has evolved rapidly, and Gautam has witnessed this changing landscape up close. Having endured the grind and excelled in various roles throughout his career, I am confident that Gautam is the ideal person to steer Indian Cricket forward.”

“His clear vision for #TeamIndia, coupled with his vast experience, positions him perfectly to take on this exciting and most sought-after coaching role. The @BCCI fully supports him as he embarks on this new journey,” he added.
