Gautam Gambhir Named Indian Cricket Team Head Coach, Replaces Rahul Dravid

Gautam Gambhir has been appointed as the new head coach of the Indian cricket team, replacing Rahul Dravid.

BCCI secretary Jay Shah, son of BJP leader Amit Shah, confirmed the news on social media on Wednesday. Dravid’s tenure concluded after the T20 World Cup 2024. “With immense pleasure, I welcome Gautam Gambhir as the new Head Coach of the Indian Cricket Team. Modern-day cricket has evolved rapidly, and Gautam’s extensive experience makes him the ideal person to steer Indian Cricket forward,” Shah posted on X (formerly Twitter). Gambhir, a former BJP MP, brings both political and cricketing experience to his new role.

Expressing his excitement about the appointment, Gambhir said, “India is my identity, and serving my country has been the greatest privilege of my life. I’m honored to be back, albeit wearing a different hat. But my goal is the same as it has always been, to make every Indian proud. The men in blue shoulder the dreams of 1.4 billion Indians and I will do everything in my power to make these dreams come true.”

Jay Shah also expressed gratitude to Rahul Dravid for his successful stint, during which India won the T20 World Cup 2024. “Rahul Dravid’s strategic acumen, efforts to nurture talent, and exemplary leadership have instilled a culture of excellence within the team. India emerged as a dominant force, including being crowned ICC Men’s T20 World Cup champions without losing a single game,” Shah added.

India, led by Rohit Sharma, showcased brilliant cricket, claiming the title by defeating South Africa in the final.
