New Delhi. Every day new names are coming out regarding the new head coach of the Indian cricket team. According to some reports, KKR mentor Gautam Gambhir is at the forefront in the race for the new coach of Team India. However, nothing has been said clearly on this by the BCCI yet. A few days ago, the names of Ricky Ponting and Justin Langer were also in the headlines, but BCCI Secretary Jay Shah has made it clear that the board has not contacted any Australian cricketer. Jay Shah says that he wants to hand over the reins of Team India to a person who has a deep understanding of Indian cricket and also knows about India's domestic cricket. Now the question arises here that if not Rahul Dravid, then what is lacking in Gautam Gambhir? Who can understand our cricket structure more than him?

One thing has become clear from the statement of BCCI Secretary Jay Shah that the Board of Control for Cricket in India wants to appoint an Indian as the head coach of Team India. Rahul Dravid's tenure will end after the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024. He does not want to extend his contract with the Indian team. Gautam Gambhir is currently the mentor of KKR. Under his mentorship, the KKR team has reached the final of IPL 2024 where it has to play against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday. Earlier, Gambhir has made KKR champion twice under his captaincy. He has been a part of the world champion team. Yes, it is true that he does not have coaching experience on the international stage but he understands Indian cricket.

Who will win the IPL final? Will the batsmen shine or the bowlers shine? Know what the condition of the pitch will be like.

Gautam Gambhir has experience of playing more than 500 domestic matches.
If Gautam Gambhir is made the coach of Team India, it will definitely benefit the Indian team. He has the experience of playing 147 ODIs, 58 Tests and 37 T20 International matches. He has played more than 500 domestic matches. This is a plus point for Gautam Gambhir. He knows the young players coming from different states very well. He is also in touch with many of them. Perhaps no one can understand our cricket structure better than him.

The team that Gambhir joined as a mentor in the IPL performed miraculously.
BCCI had invited applications for the new head coach on 13 May. The last date to apply is 27 May. It is being told that BCCI itself had approached Gautam Gambhir for the coach. However, there has been no official statement from Gautam Gambhir on this. Gambhir has also been the coach of Lucknow Super Giants in IPL. Under his supervision, LSG was successful in making it to the playoffs in 2022 and 2023. The team with which Gambhir has worked so far has performed miraculously.
