New Delhi. Former Indian team opener Gautam Gambhir will now take over the responsibility of the team's head coach in place of Rahul Dravid. His contract with the Indian team ended with the recently concluded ICC T20 World Cup. Dravid's coaching staff also said goodbye to the team. Now the question is who will join Gambhir's coaching staff. For this, the names of Abhishek Nair and Vinay Kumar are at the forefront.

According to a report, Gautam Gambhir wants to see Abhishek Nair as the assistant coach. He can also be made the batting coach of the team. At the same time, Vinay Kumar's name is at the forefront for the bowling coach. But this will be confirmed only after a few days. Earlier, Vikram Rathore was the batting coach and Paras Mahambre was the bowling coach. The work of both of them has been excellent for the team.

At the same time, his record in domestic cricket has been amazing. Nair has scored more than 5000 runs in first class cricket, while more than 2000 runs have come from his bat in the list. Vinay Kumar has represented India at the international level. He has led his domestic team Karnataka to victory in the Ranji Trophy in 2013 and 2014.

A report also said that T Dilip will retain his role as fielding coach. His work in the last season has been amazing. However, BCCI has not yet made an official announcement regarding the appointment of the support staff and a decision will be taken soon. It will be interesting to see who is included in the new supporting staff of the team.
