Jay Shah

Jay Shah recently stated that the new head coach for Team India would be appointed before the Sri Lanka tour.

According to the new BCCI secretary, Jay Shah, the suspense surrounding India’s head coach will be over by July. Two applicants are being considered for this role by the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC), with Gautam Gambhir, a former cricketer, in pole position.

Notably, Gambhir’s performance as mentor for the IPL champion Kolkata Knight Riders in 2024 is believed to have strengthened his candidacy. Gambhir previously served as a mentor for the Lucknow Super Giants for two seasons, leading them to the playoffs on both occasions.

The next coach will take charge in two weeks during the Sri Lanka series, while another team captained by Shubman Gill will leave for Zimbabwe soon. VVS Laxman is going to be the interim coach for this series in Zimbabwe since he is already serving as the director of the National Cricket Academy.

“The CAC had shortlisted and interviewed two candidates. We will make a final decision about who to hire once their recommendation gets here from Mumbai. While VVS Laxman would be leading out against Zimbabwe, the new head coach comes in time for the Sri Lanka tour,” said BCCI secretary Jay Shah.

Initially, many high-profile names like Justin Langer, Stephen Fleming, or Ricky Ponting were picked for the coaching job; however, reports suggest that Gambhir will be named as the new head coach.
