“His appointment as Head Coach marks a new chapter for Indian cricket. His experience, dedication, and vision for the game make him the ideal candidate to guide our team forward”, he said.

Like Binny, Shah said he was certain Gambhir would lead the team to new heights. BCCI reposted Jay Shah’s tweet announcing the appointment of Gautam Gambhir as the new head coach on X. It also reposted Gautam Gambhir’s assuring tweet, indicating satisfaction with the appointment.


Gautam Gambhir Shares His Views

Gautam Gambhir took to X to share his views on his appointment as the new head coach. He proudly mentioned that India is his identity and that serving the nation is the greatest privilege of his life. He stated that his goal is to make every Indian proud and ensure that men in blue will do everything to make the dreams of Indians true.

Gambhir’s major goal as the head coach would be to keep the Indian squad performing at its peak. He’ll need to collaborate closely with the players and support team to identify areas for improvement. Devising plans to overcome any inadequacies will also be needed. Considering India’s standing as one of the world’s top cricketing nations everyone has good expectations from the new head coach. However, with his significant experience as a player and his thorough grasp of the game, he is well-equipped to manage the pressure.
