Gautam Gambhir finally breaks his silence on becoming Indian cricket team's coach

| @indiablooms | 02 Jun 2024, 08:17 pm

Former Indian cricketing star and World Cup hero Gautam Gambhir finally broke his silence and said he would love to coach the national cricket team and there is no bigger honour than doing the job.

Speaking during an event in Abu Dhabi, Gambhir was quoted as saying by the media: "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 more across the globe as well and when you represent India, how can it get bigger than that?" he said.

Gambhir made the remarks amid reports that he might soon replace Rahul Dravid as India's next coach.

The  Board of Control for Cricket in India has invited applications for the post of head coach since Rahul Dravid's tenure ends in June.

The deadline for applying for the post ends on May 27.

Gautam Gambhir returned to Kolkata Knight Riders as mentor this year and under his mentorship the franchise won their third title.

It was the first time Gambhir joined the franchise since leaving it as a player in 2017.

Interestingly, the franchise had won the previous two titles under his leadership.

Gambhir has no coaching experience at the highest level.

In his glorious career as a player, Gambhir played a pivotal role in India's T20 World Cup in South Africa and 2011 World Cup victory.
