BCCI in fix as Gautam Gambhir demands Ryan ten Doeschate for India coach position

Ryan ten Doeschate recently worked with Gambhir at the Kolkata Knight Riders, acting as the fielding coach.

The newly appointed head coach of the Indian cricket team, Gautam Gambhir, is leaving no stone unturned in making his coaching staff the best ever. As per reports, Gautam Gambhir is now looking to add Ryan ten Doeschate, the Netherlands legend, to the team’s backroom staff.

Ryan ten Doeschate recently worked with Gambhir at the Kolkata Knight Riders, acting as the fielding coach during their championship-winning season. In addition to his duties with KKR, Ten Doeschate is part of the support staff for their teams in the Caribbean Premier League, Major League Cricket, and ILT20.

Can trust him for life: Gambhir on Ten Doeschate

A viral video of Gambhir praising ten Doeschate was recently in circulation on social media. In the video, the former KKR mentor is seen stating that the Dutchman is the most selfless human being he has ever come across and that he would even be ready to take a bullet for him.

When I talk about selflessness, I have never said this in 42 years of my career. And I wanted to say this. The greatest team man I ever played with, the most selfless human being, someone I can take a bullet for, someone I can trust for life,” said Gambhir.

“I can tell you this because in 2011, my first game as a KKR captain, we only had four overseas (players) available. And this man had a fabulous 50-over World Cup. And we went in that game with only three overseas players. He was carrying drinks in that game with no disappointment on his face. He taught me selflessness,” Gambhir says in the video.

According to Cricbuzz, BCCI reportedly wants to retain T. Dilip, a member of Rahul Dravid’s outgoing staff, as the fielding coach. In this scenario, Ten Doeschate may be brought in as an assistant coach.
