What’s next for Gautam Gambhir? India’s rumored new head coach reveals future plans

As per the reports, Gautam Gambhir is the frontrunner to BCCI's answer for the next Indian team head coach.

Gautam Gambhir, the former World Cup winner and three-time IPL champion (2 times as a player, one time as mentor), has been the subject of intense speculation in recent weeks. After leading the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) to their third IPL title last week, Gambhir’s name has been widely touted as a potential successor to the current India head coach, Rahul Dravid.

In the aftermath of this remarkable achievement, Gambhir has revealed his immediate plans for the future. Rather than diving headfirst into new challenges, the current KKR mentor has decided to take a well-deserved break and spend quality time with his family. During his conversation with Sportskeeda, Gambhir was questioned about his future plans to which he answered, “Look 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. What’s better than spending time with your family?”

Speculation surrounding Gambhir’s future

While Gambhir’s vacation plans may seem like a much-earned respite after a grueling IPL season, the Indian audience is abuzz with speculation about his future endeavors. Rumors have been circulating that the former Indian opener sits at the front seat when it comes to the likeliest individual for India’s head coach role. However, there are also reports that Shah Rukh Khan wants Gambhir to be with KKR for as long as 10 years!
