Gambhir douses fire on Chandrakant Pandit ‘militant coach’ issue, says ‘have no clue about it’

KKR will look to bounce back to winning ways when they host LSG on 14th April at Eden Gardens

Kolkata Knight Riders mentor Gautam Gambhir has shared insights into his rapport with the team’s head coach, Chandrakant Pandit, following recent criticism from former KKR star David Wiese, who described Pandit’s coaching style as “militant.”

Transitioning from his role as the mentor of LSG in IPL 2021 and 2022, Gambhir assumed the same position with KKR this season. Reflecting on his brief tenure alongside the esteemed Indian domestic circuit coach, Gambhir expressed ignorance regarding any negative feedback.

“I have not heard about any criticism. It’s been early days, and my working relationship with him has been really very good. Hopefully, it will continue that way. Whatever has been said, I have no clue about it.” said Gautam Gambir as per Times Now.

Pandit’s coaching tenure has been marked by success, notably guiding Mumbai, Vidarbha, and Madhya Pradesh to triumphs in the Ranji Trophy, with his association with KKR beginning in the 2023 season.
