Gautam Gambhir will soon take over as head coach of the indian team, after rahul dravid ended his spell as head coach with the t20 world cup title, leaving the indian dressing room in style. How much time is the question.

Ever since Dravid made it clear that he would not be continuing after the t20 world cup, the former opening batsman has been the front-runner for the position. In actuality, Gambhir was one of just two candidates—the other being WV Raman—to face the interview procedure held by ashok Malhotra, Jatin Paranjape, and sulakshana Naik, the members of the cricket Advisory Committee. Gambhir is reportedly expected to be appointed as India's new head coach.

The former left-hander also marked the early end of his second stint with the team by filming a goodbye video at Eden Gardens, where he played a pivotal part in helping the team win the IPL after ten years. Why is it taking the bcci so long to acknowledge the obvious if everything is so clear?

Pay discussions hold the key to the solution. The indian Express claims that bcci and Gambhir are nearing the "final stages of salary negotiations". The notification about Gambhir's finalised salary will be made by the BCCI.

Regarding the compensation of the head coach of the indian cricket team (Men), the bcci maintains flexibility. It said that the pay is "negotiable and will be commensurate with experience" in the advertising requesting applications for the position.
Gambhir is anticipated to receive a larger compensation than rahul dravid, the former coach, who was paid around ₹12 core each year.

Gambhir's first national assignment will be this one. For the record, he has never held a position as a team's head coach. His sole coaching expertise comes from the indian Premier League, where he spent a few seasons as the coach of the lucknow Super Giants before moving to KKR and helping them win the league last year.

Right now, VVS Laxman, the chairman of NCA, is coaching the indian team in Zimbabwe. With a new head coach, india will visit sri lanka for a white-ball series, as announced by bcci secretary Jay Shah.
