Former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir replaced Rahul Dravid as head coach of the Indian cricket team. Dravid parted ways with team India after leading the side to a win in the T20 World Cup. Gambhir was the front-runner to take over the duties from Dravid after leading KKR to a win in the IPL 2024. The official announcement of Gautam Gambhir's appointment as head coach was made by the BCCI Secretary Jay Shah on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Gautam Gambhir etched his name in the record books after being appointed as the head coach of the Indian team. Gambhir became the first coach in the world to have won World Cups in different formats. Gambhir won his maiden World Cup in 2007 when the MS Dhoni-led team created history to win the inaugural edition of the T20 World Cup. Gambhir played a key role in India's win and top-scored for the side in the final against Pakistan. Gambhir's inning of 75 was instrumental in the team's win.
Gamhhir was also part of the ODI World Cup winning team in 2011. Once again, Gambhir was the top scorer for India in the summit clash and helped India pull off a tricky chase with a breathtaking innings of 97.
Meanwhile, Gambhir reacted to his appointment as the head coach and said he will do everything to take Indian cricket forward.
“It is an absolute honour to serve my tricolour, my people, my country. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Rahul Dravid and his team of support staff for their exemplary run with the team. I am honoured and excited to take on the role of Head Coach for Team India," Gambhir said in a statement.
"I have always taken pride while donning the Indian jersey during my playing days and it is going to be no different when I take up this new role. Cricket has been my passion and I look forward to working closely with the BCCI, Head of Cricket – Mr VVS Laxman, the support staff, and, most importantly, the players, as we work towards achieving success in the upcoming tournaments,” he added.
