Amid the celebrations in Purple and Gold, Gambhir took a moment to engage with the BCCI top brass, including Jay Shah and BCCI president Roger Binny. This meeting has fueled speculation among fans on social media, who believe the discussion might have revolved around Gambhir’s potential interest in the India head coach position. Reports have suggested that Gambhir is a leading contender to replace Rahul Dravid, whose tenure is set to conclude following the T20 World Cup in June.

Interestingly, Jay Shah had recently confirmed that the BCCI had not approached any Australian candidates for the role, which puts names like Stephen Fleming and Gambhir in the spotlight. With KKR’s nearly invincible season and their latest IPL win, Gambhir’s reputation as a mentor and coach is on the rise, making him a strong candidate for the prestigious position of head coach of the Indian cricket team.
