Gautam Gambhir set to be Team India head coach

Gautam Gambhir is set to become the head coach of the Indian cricket team. So far, this is the final. But he will have to give a test before selection. Rahul Dravid's tenure ends after the T20 World Cup. Last month, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) advertised for a coach. Many names floated as India's next coach. Even the names of several foreign coaches. Two former Australian cricketers were also in the race. The Indian board, however, is not leaning on foreign coaches. The board wants a former Indian cricketer for the post. And that person is Gautam Gambhir. But he also has to become a coach through the test.

Gambhir was the mentor of the Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL. He will be interviewed on Tuesday by Ashok Malhotra, Jatin Paranjpe, and Sulakshana Naik, who are on the advisory committee. The interview is scheduled for Tuesday. "Interviews will be conducted for the head coach and a selector. The names of the coach and selector will be announced by the board after the advisory committee makes its decision.

Earlier, Ricky Ponting and Justin Langer had said that they had turned down the offer to become India coaches. But the board countered that no former Australian was requested to become India's coach. BCCI secretay "Neither I nor anyone on the board has offered any Australian player for the coach's job."

A few days ago, at an event in Dubai, Gambhir said, "I would love to become the coach of the Indian team. There is no greater pride than being the coach of the country. You can represent 140 crore Indians if you become a coach.
