Gautam Gambhir is set to become India’s next head coach, stepping into the role after Rahul Dravid, who finished his tenure with India’s thrilling victory in the T20 World Cup 2024. BCCI secretary Jay Shah made the big announcement on X (formerly Twitter). Gambhir’s first challenge will be a white-ball tour of Sri Lanka, featuring three ODIs and three T20Is later this month.

The two-time World Cup champ officially took over from Dravid on Tuesday. “India is my identity and serving my country has been the greatest privilege of my life,” he shared on X. “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!”
