New Delhi. The contract of coach Rahul Dravid, who made the Indian team champion in the ICC T20 World Cup, ended with this tournament. He also made it clear that now he is not interested in extending his tenure. Gautam Gambhir will be the new head coach of the Indian cricket team, this was announced by the BCCI on Tuesday 9 July. Now everyone will definitely have this question in their mind that the salary of this expert who will replace Dravid will be more or less than him.

On Tuesday, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah officially announced Gambhir's appointment, which was being speculated for a long time. However, it is learned that his salary is not yet finalized, although it is expected to be at par with his predecessors Rahul Dravid and Ravi Shastri. According to a report, former Indian team coach Rahul Dravid used to get an annual salary of around Rs 12 crore from the BCCI. It is being told that Gambhir has also been offered the same salary as him.

Gambhir's salary will be equal to Dravid's

“It was more important for Gautam to take charge, salary and other things can be worked out. It is similar to Ravi Shastri's case in 2014 when he was first appointed as Director of Cricket replacing head coach Duncan Fletcher. The day Ravi joined, he didn't even have a contract and things were finalised later. Some details are being worked out in Gautam's case as well. His salary will be at par with Rahul Dravid,” a BCCI source told PTI.
