Former India captain Sourav Ganguly has said that former Indian batsman Gautam Gambhir could be the head coach of Team India after the T20 World Cup. “I think he will be the next coach (for Team India),” Ganguly told media persons. With Rahul Dravid's tenure as head coach coming to an end after the T20 World Cup, the BCCI is in the process of making a decision. Rahul Dravid has expressed his intention not to renew the contract. Dravid had earlier said, “Every game I have coached for India is important. This is the last tournament of the job. I have enjoyed coaching India, it is fantastic to work with these boys. It is a special job. But there are programs where I find myself that at this stage of my life, I will not be able to apply.”

Gambhir is seen as a frontrunner for the head coach role. He was a left-handed opener for the Indian team and has served as a mentor for the Kolkata Knight Riders team in the Indian Premier League 2024. KKR won their third IPL trophy this season.

Ganguly praised the Indian team for reaching the T20 World Cup final. 51-year-old Ganguly said, “Reaching two World Cup finals in 7 months shows the ability and strength of the team… They will not make any changes in the team and this is Rohit Sharma's leadership style. It will be the same team… I wish them to win tomorrow.”

India will take on South Africa in the T20 World Cup final at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados on Saturday.
