‘I would love to coach the Indian team’: Gautam Gambhir | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Gautam Gambhir has emerged as the front-runner to take over as the coach of the Indian cricket team once the current coach Rahul Dravid‘s contract expires following the conclusion of the T20 World Cup.
The former opening batsman for India has also conveyed his desire to assume the coaching role for the national side.
With Dravid’s tenure set to end after the global T20 tournament, the BCCI is actively seeking a suitable replacement to guide the team through the upcoming challenges.

“I would love to coach the Indian team. There is no bigger honour than coaching your national team. You are representing 140 crore Indians and those across the globe as well,” said the 42-year-old at an event in Abu Dhabi.
Former captain Sourav Ganguly had endorsed Gambhir as a potential candidate for the position of India’s head coach, stating, “he is a good candidate”.
Gambhir recently addressed a group of students at Medeor Hospital in Abu Dhabi. During the session, a student inquired about the possibility of Gambhir coaching the Indian cricket team and utilizing his experience to help them secure a World Cup victory.
In response to the question, Gambhir said “I have not answered this question, although lot of people have asked me. But I have to answer you now.
“It is 140 crore Indians who will help India win the World Cup. If everyone starts praying for us and we start playing and representing them, India will win the World Cup. The most important thing is to be fearless,” said Gambhir.
The former opener, while on a personal trip to the UAE, visited the sports medicine department at Medeor Hospital.
During his visit, he engaged with young cricket enthusiasts from various academies in Abu Dhabi, sharing insights about his inspiring journey and recent achievements.
Gambhir, a key member of the Indian team that won the 2007 World T20 and the 2011 ODI World Cup, was praised for his recent success with the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
“A secure dressing room is a happy dressing room, and a happy dressing room ends up in a winning dressing room. The only thing I did in the KKR was following this mantra. With God’s grace it actually worked,” he said.
