NEW DELHI: In a landmark decision to shape the future trajectory of Indian cricket, the Cricket Advisory Committee unanimously appointed Gautam Gambhir as the Head Coach of Team India. Gambhir will officially assume his new role from the upcoming away series against Sri Lanka, which kicks off on July 27, 2024. This strategic move follows the conclusion of Rahul Dravid’s tenure as coach after the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

Gautam Gambhir’s ascendancy to the coaching role represents a seamless transition from his illustrious playing career. As a former Indian opener, Gambhir holds an esteemed reputation, having clinched two World Cup titles and displaying exceptional batting prowess throughout his tenure. His leadership credentials are further underscored by his instrumental role in guiding the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) to two IPL championships, followed by mentoring the team to a historic third title in 2024.
