On Tuesday, former cricketer Gautam Gambhir was named the new head coach of Team India. Gambhir's tenure will commence in July, succeeding the esteemed Rahul Dravid. Jay Shah, the BCCI secretary, made the announcement on X.

"I am delighted to welcome Mr. Gautam Gambhir as the new Head Coach of the Indian Cricket Team. Cricket has transformed significantly in recent times, and Gautam has been at the forefront of these changes. With his extensive experience and success in various roles throughout his career, I am certain that Gautam is the perfect choice to lead Indian Cricket into the future," Shah stated.

Shah also highlighted Gambhir's vision for the team and his comprehensive experience, positioning him as the ideal candidate for this highly coveted coaching position. This appointment follows the recent exits of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma from T20 Internationals, shortly after India's victory against South Africa in the World Cup final.
