Indian team next coach

Gautam Gambhir has been officially appointed as the coach of India. However, now the question is who else will get a place in the coaching staff of the Indian team apart from Gautam Gambhir.

With the end of Rahul Dravid’s tenure as head coach, the tenure of the rest of the coaching staff of Team India has also ended. Batting coach Vikram Rathod, bowling coach Paras Mhambrey and fielding coach T Dilip have also left and now new appointments are to be made.

Now the question in the minds of the fans is who will be the next batting, bowling and fielding coach of the Indian team. According to the news that has come out so far, Gautam Gambhir has expressed confidence in Abhishek Nair as batting coach and wants Vinay Kumar in the team as bowling coach. 

Abhishek Nair has worked with Gambhir in the KKR team. On the other hand, if we talk about Vinay Kumar, he also has a lot of experience. Apart from Gautam Gambhir, Abhishek Nair’s contribution was also significant in making KKR the champion. For this reason, Gambhir also wants Abhishek Nair in the Indian team. 

At the same time, a few days ago it was reported that Gautam Gambhir wants Jonty Rhodes as the fielding coach in Team India. Rhodes has worked with Gautam Gambhir in Lucknow Super Giants. For this reason, the coordination between the two is very good and Gautam Gambhir wants to make him the fielding coach of Team India as well.
