Amidst speculation surrounding India’s new head coach, former cricketer Gautam Gambhir expressed his willingness to take on the role, considering it an “honour” to coach the Indian cricket team. With Rahul Dravid’s tenure as head coach nearing its end after the conclusion of the T20 World Cup 2024 in June, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is evaluating potential candidates.

As India prepares to commence their T20 World Cup campaign against Ireland on June 5 in New York, Gambhir believes that winning the World Cup is a collective effort, requiring support from every Indian, both on and off the field. He emphasized the importance of fearlessness and unity in achieving success.

During his visit to the UAE, Gambhir engaged with young cricket enthusiasts and shared insights from his illustrious career. Praised for his recent success as the mentor of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Gambhir emphasized the significance of fostering a secure and harmonious team environment, attributing KKR’s triumph in the IPL to this ethos.

Gambhir also imparted valuable advice on sportsmanship, emphasizing the values of hard work, discipline, and treating one’s team as a family. He highlighted the importance of fairness and unity in cricket, emphasizing that success is a collective endeavor.

Gambhir’s interaction was part of a special event aimed at inspiring young athletes and showcasing the sports medicine services offered by Medeor Hospital. Safeer Ahamed, Group COO of Burjeel Holdings, accompanied Gambhir during the visit, providing insights into the group’s initiatives to promote sports and well-being.
