Gautam Gambhir and his future plans!

Gautam Gambhir, the highly rumored India’s preferred choice of next head coach, has decided to take a break from cricket after leading his team to their third IPL title in 2024. Despite being a strong contender for the position to replace Rahul Dravid, Gambhir has prioritized spending quality time with his family, stating, “For me what is next is the vacation with my girls and my wife. I am looking forward to it. Because that is the one thing from which you can rejuvenate and not think about cricket. Gambhir’s decision to take a break comes after a successful stint with KKR, where he played a crucial role in shaping the team’s culture and instilling a winning mentality.

Dutch the real dark horses

The Netherlands sent shockwaves through the T20 World Cup with a convincing 20-run victory over Sri Lanka in their opening warm-up match. Batting first, the Dutch posted a strong 181 runs on the board, with Teja Nidamanuru’s blistering 48 (24) leading the charge. Sri Lanka’s chase faltered despite a decent showing, falling short at 161. This win against a traditionally strong Sri Lankan side puts the Dutch in the spotlight.
