Will Gautam Gambhir Be the Rahul DravidIndian cricket team's successor as head coach? This is perhaps the biggest question in Indian cricket right now. Dravid's tenure ends with the 2024 T20 World Cup and his successor, according to a BCCI press release, will take over from July 1. However, there has been almost total silence on who all applied for the lead role. If BCCI Secretary Jay Shah's statement is to be believed, it is likely that an Indian will be at the helm.

Several reports have claimed that Gambhir is one of the favorites for the job, but in a recent interview, after coaching KKR to the IPL 2024 title, he indicated something unique. He was asked if KKR was now a “trophy-winning dressing room”.

“Today you are saying this because we have won our third trophy. But if you ask me, we are still two trophies away from MI and CSK. Today I am happy, but again this hunger (is there) that you are still not the most successful team in the IPL, for that to happen you need to win the IPL three more times which will require a lot of hard work I. so think the next mission is whether we can make KKR the most successful team in the IPL the IPL There will be no greater feeling for me than the journey. just started (the journey has just begun),” Gautam Gambhir said on Sportskeeda.

The official deadline for submission of applications for the post of coach of the Indian cricket team has ended. Monday was the last date to submit Google Sheets to be India's next coach.

A report in Cricbuzz has given details of what could be happening in the background. He claimed that a “high profile owner of an IPL franchise, who is very close to the BCCI top brass” told the publication that the appointment of the former Indian star as coach of the Indian cricket team is “a done deal and the announcement will come soon”. . He also said that a “senior commentator” had told them that serious efforts were being made to sign the KKR mentor.

However, the report also adds that since there has been no official announcement, this highlights the fact that negotiations continue on several fronts – “between the two parties and, perhaps, with other also”.

BCCI Secretary Jay Shah last week dismissed claims that the Board had approached a former Australian cricketer to become India's next head coach and suggested that Rahul Dravid's successor could being an Indian by saying he should have a “deep understanding” of the structure of the game in the country.
