Gautam Gambhir
According to a new report from Dainik Bhaskar, Gautam Gambhir will be officially announced as India’s new head coach by the end of June, replacing Rahul Dravid after the 2024 T20 World Cup.

With Rahul Dravid’s tenure as head coach of the Indian men’s cricket team ending after the 2024 T20 World Cup, reports suggest Gautam Gambhir is set to be officially announced as his replacement by the end of June. Gambhir will sign a contract with the BCCI that extends until the end of the 2027 ODI World Cup and will select his own support staff.

The decision to appoint Gambhir as head coach was largely settled last month. Gambhir was seen in deep conversation with BCCI secretary Jay Shah at the IPL league final. Despite initially returning to KKR at the insistence of co-owner Shah Rukh Khan, Gambhir appears eager to take on the role with the Indian team.

“We have held talks with Gambhir to become the head coach of the Indian team. He will replace the outgoing Rahul Dravid after the T20 World Cup,” a BCCI source told Dainik Bhaskar.

The report also suggested that Gautam Gambhir and the BCCI have discussed the timing of his official announcement as the next head coach of the Indian men’s cricket team, with the date contingent upon India’s performance in the ongoing T20 World Cup. Notably, Gambhir has indicated his preference to select his own support staff.

Currently, the team’s support staff includes Vikram Rathour as the batting coach, Paras Mhambrey as the bowling coach, and T Dilip as the fielding coach. These positions saw changes when Ravi Shastri and Rahul Dravid took over as head coaches, with Dravid retaining Rathour and appointing Mhambrey and Dilip.

Upon Gambhir’s appointment, significant changes are expected in the support staff, potentially including new appointments for the batting, bowling, and fielding coach roles.
