What major challenges does Gautam Gambhir have as an Indian cricket team coach?

Gautam Gambhir is expected to be India's head coach until the 2027 ODI World Cup in South Africa.

Gautam Gambhir’s appointment as India’s head coach ushers in a new era for Indian cricket. Being Indian Cricket Team’s head coach could be one of the most challenging tasks. With a successful track record as a mentor for IPL teams, being the coach of ICT will be the ultimate test for the two-time World Cup winner.

The ICC Champions Trophy

The ICC Champions Trophy is the first challenge. India last won in 2013, and they lost in the finals in 2017. This could be Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli’s final ICC ODI tournament, making it an emotional and crucial farewell. This will put GG’s coaching abilities and performance to the test in his first ICC tournament.

Breaking the WTC Final Jinx

The ICC WTC Final will be Gambhir’s next big challenge. India has consecutively reached the finals but failed to bring the championship home. This time, Gambhir needs to step up to reach the finals and win it for the first time ever for ICT. 

Fresh Faces, New Challenges in 2026

The ICC T20 World Cup presents a new challenge. With Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Ravindra Jadeja’s absence, Gambhir must work with the fresh faces and build the most balanced team that will defend the silverware for India.
