The BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) recently came forward to announce the signing of former India batter Gautam Gambhir as India’s next head coach. In a move which was being heavily discussed, it finally came to fruition, and the fans are delighted with the announcement.

Seeing the announcement, renowned cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to express his thoughts about Gambhir’s appointment and opined that he is the right man to take Indian cricket forward.

“The most open secret in Indian cricket has finally been revealed. Having known Gautam Gambhir for over 20 years, I am confident he will do a fine job. He can be direct, even blunt, but his heart is in the right place, and he cares deeply for Indian cricket,” Bhogle tweeted.

I’m honoured to be back: Gautam Gambhir

But my goal is the same as it has always been, to make every Indian proud. The men in blue shoulder the dreams of 1.4 billion Indians and I will do everything in my power to make these dreams come true!” Gambhir tweeted.

Gambhir’s first assignment would be the upcoming white-ball tour to Sri Lanka, and the side will then set its sights on the WTC Final and the Champions Trophy 2025.
