Latest Update

The T20 World Cup has started and the Indian team has reached New York for this competition. This competition will be played in America and West Indies. After this international competition, the current captain of the team, Rahul Dravid will step down from the post. Keeping this in mind, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has invited applications for the post of head coach of Team India. Its last date was May 27, which has now passed. Although the deadline has passed, there is still uncertainty about the selection of the head coach of the Indian team, as the board has not yet issued any statement on this matter.

The timeframe is acceptable, but the board will discuss further before making a final decision, according to a board source cited by news agency PTI. The T20 World Cup is coming up, and we are working hard to get ready for it. Following that, the senior players will be permitted to take a break and embark on trips to Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe. Who will be appointed coach is still up in the air.

GautamGambhir also remained silent.

It is being speculated that former Indian team batsman GautamGambhir is leading the race to become the coach. In the IPL 2024 season, Gambhir played the role of mentor of the winning team Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). But he has not said anything about this either. Neither of the two parties has made any statement in this regard. It is believed that the BCCI does not have any very good option. Since board secretary Jay Shah has said that he is looking for a candidate who is well versed with the local structure of Indian cricket, no well-known foreign applicant has applied for the post. The BCCI was eyeing VVS Laxman as the National Cricket Academy (NCA) head but the stylish former Hyderabad cricketer is not showing any interest in the full-time position.

There was a discussion between Gambhir-Shah

While the entire KKR team was busy celebrating the title win over Sunrisers Hyderabad, the team’s coach GautamGambhir met BCCI secretary Jay Shah after the match. Photos of their meeting went viral on social media, rekindling the rumor that Gambhir will take over the role of coach of the Indian team. But Gambhir and KKR owner Shah Rukh Khan share a very close relationship, so it does not seem that Gambhir will leave the IPL team easily. It is also Important to consider the opinion of senior Indian players, who are currently in New York, about Gambhir’s possible appointment as coach. It is imperative to consider all factors before designating someone for this position.

According to a board source quoted by news agency PTI, the deadline is acceptable, but the board will deliberate further before taking any final decision. We are currently busy preparing for the T20 World Cup, which is already underway. After that the senior players will be allowed to rest while going on tours to Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka. It is still not clear who will be given the post of coach. Click here for more information
