‘I’m honoured to be back, albeit wearing a different hat’: Gautam Gambhir after being appointed Team India’s head coach | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Former India opener Gautam Gambhir conveyed his delight upon being named the head coach of the Indian cricket team. He emphasized that having the opportunity to serve his nation has been the most significant honour he has ever experienced throughout his life.
The 42-year-old Gambhir takes over from batting great Rahul Dravid, who finished his stint with the T20 World Cup title in Barbados last month.
“India is my identity and serving my country has been the greatest privilege of my life. I’m honoured to be back, albeit wearing a different hat. But my goal is the same as it has always been, to make every Indian proud. The men in blue shoulder the dreams of 1.4 billion Indians and I will do everything in my power to make these dreams come true!” Gambhir tweeted.

“It is with immense pleasure that I welcome Mr Gautam Gambhir as the new Head Coach of the Indian Cricket Team,” BCCI secretary Jay Shah said in a statement.
“Modern-day cricket has evolved rapidly, and Gautam has witnessed this changing landscape up close,” Shah added.

Gambhir, a skilled southpaw who significantly contributed to India’s victory in the 2011 ODI World Cup, has recently led the Kolkata Knight Riders to an IPL title as their head coach.
“Having endured the grind and excelled in various roles throughout his career, I am confident that Gautam is the ideal person to steer Indian Cricket forward,” Shah added.
“His clear vision for Team India, coupled with his vast experience, positions him perfectly to take on this exciting and most sought-after coaching role.”
