India’s search for a new head coach intensifies as Rahul Dravid‘s tenure is set to conclude after the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is actively evaluating potential successors to lead the men’s national team, marking a pivotal moment for Indian cricket leadership.

Several prominent figures have emerged as contenders to fill Dravid’s shoes. Among them, Gautam Gambhir, renowned for his tactical acumen and leadership prowess both on and off the field, stands out as a frontrunner. His recent success with the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 has bolstered his credentials.
