New Delhi: Gautam Gambhir, the former Indian cricketer, is poised to take over from Rahul Dravid as the next head coach of Team India. Numerous reports suggest that Gambhir's appointment is nearing finalization, with an official announcement expected by the end of June 2024.

Having recently served as a mentor for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL), Gambhir played a pivotal role in guiding the Shreyas Iyer-led team to their third IPL title. Prior to his stint with KKR, Gambhir was associated with the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) for two years.

With Rahul Dravid's contract set to conclude after the T20 World Cup, the incumbent head coach has confirmed that the 2024 edition of the tournament will be his final assignment with the Indian team.
