Rahul Dravid's tenure as Team India's head coach will end after the T20 World Cup 2024. The Indian team has qualified for the Super-8 round after remaining undefeated in the group stage. Now its next match will be against Afghanistan in the Super-8. Meanwhile, a new report has surfaced. According to this, Gautam Gambhir will be officially declared the next head coach of Team India by the end of June. The report also states that Gambhir will sign a contract with BCCI till the 2027 ODI World Cup. Not only this, he will also choose his support staff himself.

Who will be the next coach of Team India after head coach Rahul Dravid? The discussions on this had largely calmed down late last month when reports clearly indicated the appointment of Gautam Gambhir. Former World Cup winner Gambhir, who played a key role in Kolkata Knight Riders winning their third IPL title this season, was seen having a long conversation with BCCI secretary Jay Shah during the final in Chennai last month.

In fact, a Dainik Jagran report on Sunday indicated that Gautam Gambhir and the BCCI have already discussed and finalized the date of his announcement. The report, quoting a BCCI source, revealed that Gambhir further told the board that he would like to choose his own set of support staff members. Currently, Vikram Rathore is the batting coach, Paras Mhambrey is the bowling coach and T Dilip is the fielding coach.

When Ravi Shastri became Team India's head coach, Vikram Rathore took over as batting coach from Sanjay Bangar. When Dravid took over as head coach, Rathore remained in his position, but Mahambre and Dilip were chosen solely on their request. With Gambhir taking over as coach, the Indian team's support staff would undergo considerable changes.
