Gautam Gambhir has been named as the new head coach of the Indian Cricket Team, succeeding Rahul Dravid. This announcement was confirmed by BCCI Secretary Jay Shah on Tuesday, marking a pivotal moment for Gambhir as he steps into this esteemed role.

Gambhir, a former opener renowned for his contributions to Indian cricket, takes charge following India’s triumphant campaign in the T20 World Cup. His appointment comes at a crucial juncture, with his first challenge being the upcoming limited-overs series against Sri Lanka scheduled to commence by the end of July.


Expressing confidence in Gambhir’s capabilities, Jay Shah praised his extensive experience and deep understanding of the modern game. “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,” Shah stated, highlighting Gambhir’s vision and strategic acumen.

The BCCI also extended its gratitude to Rahul Dravid for his outstanding tenure as head coach, which culminated in India clinching the T20 World Cup title. Dravid’s leadership was lauded for nurturing young talent and instilling discipline within the team, contributing significantly to their recent successes on the international stage.


Gautam Gambhir, known for his serious demeanor and tactical prowess, brings a wealth of experience to his new role. As a key figure in India’s 2011 ODI World Cup triumph and a successful stint as captain of Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL, Gambhir is poised to build on India’s current momentum and guide the team towards further achievements.

With high expectations following India’s recent T20 World Cup victory, Gambhir’s leadership will be closely watched as he collaborates with players and support staff to maintain India’s position as a dominant force in world cricket. His appointment reflects the BCCI’s commitment to ensuring sustained success for Team India across all formats.

As Gambhir prepares to take charge, the cricketing world awaits eagerly to see how he shapes the future of Indian cricket and leads the team through upcoming challenges and opportunities on the global stage.
