eport: Jay Shah-Gautam Gambhir Conversation Details on team India’s Coach selection

The formal application date for the position of Indian cricket team coach selection has passed. Google Sheets were to be turned in by Monday at the latest. Upon hearing that the BCCI was seeking a replacement for Rahul Dravid as the coach of the Indian cricket team.

A number of prominent names—the majority of whom are connected to IPL teams—such as Gautam Gambhir, Stephen Fleming, Rocky Ponting, and Justin Langer, were making the rounds. The majority of the foreign players, however, made it known that they would not be applying to join the team.

Jay Shah, the secretary of the BCCI, stated that no Australian was contacted for the coaching position. Additionally, he stated that BCCI would designate an individual who is well-versed in the domestic framework.

After making this comment, everyone seemed to agree that he was making a reference to an Indian coach who works with the Indian cricket team. Thus, VVS Laxman, the head of the National Cricket Academy, and Gautam Gambhir, the coach of the IPL winner Kolkata Knight Riders, were the most talked-about figures.

The inner details of Jay Shah and Gautam Gambhir’s chat during the IPl 2024 final have already been reported by Cricbuzz. “The phrase ‘desh ke liye karna hai’ is rather popular inside the coach selection circle. The belief that ‘we must do it for the country’ is held by both Gambhir and the BCCI. Additionally, the report stated that “Gambir and Jay Shah’s conversation is believed to revolve around this concept.”

According to the report, Gambhir has a history of showing off his nationalistic side. It further stated that Gambhir is reportedly taking the BCCI’s strategy into consideration, based on remarks made in private. According to the article, Shah Rukh Khan, a co-owner of KKR, is also aware of the development.

Gautam Gambhir’s formal application for the position of coach has not been confirmed by any source. According to earlier reports, SRK desired Gambhir to have a long-term relationship with the IPL team. The actor reportedly even gave Gambhir a blank cheque to join KKR for ten years last year, according to a Dainik Jagran article.
