Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir has been appointed head coach of the Indian men’s cricket team, announced by BCCI secretary Jay Shah after Rahul Dravid’s tenure ended with India’s T20 World Cup 2024 triumph. Dale Steyn praised Gambhir’s aggression, calling him “streetwise and smart.” Gambhir, instrumental in India’s 2007 and 2011 World Cup wins, brings a fierce yet gentlemanly approach. His appointment follows India’s T20 World Cup victory over South Africa, ending a 17-year drought.
