BCCI approaches Gautam Gambhir to become India's head coach

According to a report, the Board of Control for Cricket in India has approached former cricketer Gautam Gambhir to replace Rahul Dravid as India’s head coach.
The report also indicates that Gambhir is the top candidate for BCCI to become India’s next head coach, as Dravid’s tenure is set to end following the T20 World Cup in 2024. 
After the conclusion of the Indian Premier League 2024, BCCI is planning to discuss the position with Gautam, where he is currently serving as the mentor for the Kolkata Knight Riders. He was a crucial member of India’s victorious campaigns in the ICC World T20 in 2007 and the 2011 ODI World Cup.
Last November, after India lost the ICC Cricket World Cup final at home, Dravid was given an extension until June 2024, aligning with the ICC T20 World Cup in the West Indies and USA, scheduled from June 1 to 29.
On Monday, BCCI invited applications for the position of men’s national team head coach, with the tenure starting on July 1, 2024, and concluding on December 31, 2027, the year of the next 50-over Cricket World Cup. The deadline for applications is May 27 at 6 p.m.
