Gautam Gambhir Takes Over as Head Coach of Team India

    Gautam Gambhir steps in as the head coach of Team India, taking over from Rahul Dravid. Gambhir looks forward to collaborating with VVS Laxman and leading.

    With Gautam Gambhir’s appointment, Indian cricket entered a new phase. In his upcoming innings for Team India, Gambhir will don a different hat. He feels privileged to be back in the camp. On Tuesday, the two-time World Cup champion took over as the head coach of the T20 World Champions, taking over from Rahul Dravid. Dravid, Gambhir’s predecessor, put an end to India’s protracted quest for an ICC championship in the Caribbean with his coaching.

     The Indian squad led by Dravid made history by being the first men’s team to win a T20 World Cup in the ICC without losing a single match. Following Dravid’s remarkable run, Gambhir, who succeeded The Wall as India’s head coach, saved special appreciation for him. Dravid led Team India to the finals of the ICC. Additionally, Team India won the Asia Cup while led by Dravid.

    Gambhir Congratulating Rahul Dravid.

    Serving my people, my nation, and my tricolor is an utmost honor. I would want to use this chance to express my gratitude to Rahul Dravid and his support crew for an outstanding tenure with the squad. After the BCCI officially announced the appointment of the former India opener, Gambhir stated, “I am honored and excited to take on the role of Head Coach for Team India.”

    In addition, Gambhir is excited to work with VVS Laxman, who is now touring Zimbabwe in the capacity of India’s temporary head coach for the five-match Twenty20 International series. India will host Sri Lanka for three Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) and as many One Day Internationals (ODIs) following the away tour to Zimbabwe. The recently appointed head coach’s first duty will be the next Sri Lanka series.

    “I always felt proud to wear the Indian jersey when I was a player, and I won’t be any different in this new position. My love is cricket, and I’m excited to collaborate closely with the BCCI, Mr. VVS Laxman, the Head of Cricket, the support team, and most importantly, the players as we aim to succeed in the next tournaments,” stated Gambhir.
