Gautam Gambhir
With Gautam Gambhir appointed as the new head coach of the Indian cricket team, reports suggest that he has recommended former KKR assistant coach Abhishek Nayar and Vinay Kumar to replace the outgoing support staff.

With Gautam Gambhir now appointed as the head coach of the Indian cricket team, attention turns to who will assist him in this role. The BCCI has announced that current support staff members Paras Mhambrey (bowling coach), T Dilip (fielding coach), and Vikram Rathour (batting coach) will end their tenures.

Jay Shah announced on Tuesday that Gautam Gambhir has been appointed as the new head coach of the Indian men’s cricket team.

According to RevSportz, Gambhir has recommended Abhishek Nayar and Vinay Kumar as their replacements for batting and bowling coaches, respectively. Nayar, who worked with Gambhir at Kolkata Knight Riders and helped them win the IPL 2024 title, is a seasoned first-class player. Vinay Kumar, a former international player, has led Karnataka to multiple domestic titles.

Meanwhile, Dainik Jagran reported that T Dilip will continue as the fielding coach, while Abhishek Nayar’s appointment as batting coach seems likely, but Vinay Kumar’s role remains uncertain. The BCCI has yet to make an official announcement, with a decision expected soon.
