The strongest hint yet that Gautam Gambhir would take over as Team India’s next head coach comes from him. Amidst speculation that he is a strong candidate for the prominent role, Gambhir stated on Saturday that he would like to coach the national team.

Rahul Dravid’s contract is set to end after the upcoming T20 World Cup, and Gambhir, who recently guided the Kolkata Knight Riders to their third IPL title, is considered a possible replacement. It’s still unknown if Gambhir has sent in his candidacy, even though the deadline to apply for the head coach position was May 27.

Applications were invited by the BCCI last month, and the form submission date was May 27. The next head coach of India is still up in the air, but several media reports suggest that Gautam Gambhir is the front-runner for the prominent position. Cricbuzz reports that Jay Shah, the secretary of the BCCI, and Gautam Gambhir had already discussed the coach’s position.

The same news source also stated that the employment of the former India opener as head coach is finalized and will be announced shortly, according to a well-known IPL franchise owner. The BCCI wants to bring in the former batsman, according to a prominent pundit who also affirmed this.

“There is no bigger honor than coaching your national team”- Gautam Gambhir 

In an Abu Dhabi event, former Indian cricketer and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) coach Gautam Gambhir stated that leading the Indian national team is the greatest honor.

As a front-runner to succeed Indian cricket team coach Rahul Dravid, his name has been making the rounds. Gambhir, amid rumors, declared his intention to assume the top position during a special meeting with kids at the Medeor Hospital in Abu Dhabi.

Asked about coaching the national team and helping them win the ICC World Cup with his experience, Gambhir responded, laughing: “I have not answered this question, despite many people asking me. But I have to respond to you now. I’d want to coach the Indian squad. There is no greater honor than coaching your national team. You represent 140 crore Indians and more over the world.”

“It is not me that will help India win the World Cup, 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, Gautam Gambhir added.

Gambhir, who was a vital player of the Indian side that won the 2007 ICC World Twenty20 and the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup, was praised for his recent success with the Kolkata Knight Riders after rejoining the Indian Premier League franchise as their coach.
