Gambhir’s impressive coaching record in the Indian Premier League (IPL)

Gambhir’s impressive coaching record in the Indian Premier League (IPL) has significantly bolstered his candidacy. This season, under his leadership, the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) clinched the championship title, showcasing his ability to guide teams to success.

Prior to his stint with KKR, Gambhir was part of the coaching staff for Lucknow Super Giants, where he also demonstrated commendable leadership and tactical acumen, contributing to the team’s strong performances.

Strong contender for the head coach position

In light of these accomplishments, Gambhir’s name has naturally surfaced as a strong contender for the head coach position. According to a BCCI source, Gambhir has expressed a desire to select his own support staff, which may lead to changes in the current coaching setup.

Presently, the support staff includes Vikram Rathore as the batting coach, Paras Mhambrey as the bowling coach, and T Dilip as the fielding coach. Gambhir’s potential appointment signifies a new era for Indian cricket, as his strategic insights and leadership skills could bring fresh perspectives and approaches to the team.
