In a significant development for Indian cricket, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has accepted Gautam Gambhir’s recommendation to appoint Abhishek Nayar as the new assistant coach of the Indian cricket team.

Gautam Gambhir, who recently took over from Rahul Dravid, is set to lead the Indian team through an exciting period of international cricket. His first assignment will be a comprehensive white-ball series against Sri Lanka, featuring three ODIs and three T20Is. Gambhir’s tenure will span until the 2027 ODI World Cup, a significant challenge that includes a tour to Australia for Test matches, the ICC Champions Trophy 2025, and the ICC World Test Championship final for the 2023-25 cycle.

The BCCI has moved swiftly to fill the gaps in the coaching staff, and one of the most anticipated appointments is that of Abhishek Nayar as the assistant coach. Nayar, a former India all-rounder and current assistant coach for Kolkata Knight Riders, is expected to bring his expertise and experience to the national team.

According to a Cricbuzz report, there is also speculation about Gambhir taking on the role of batting coach himself. For the position of bowling coach, the BCCI is considering experienced candidates such as Lakshmipathy Balaji and Vinay Kumar, both of whom have previously worked under Gambhir at KKR.

As Gambhir steps into his new role, he will be building on a successful stint with Kolkata Knight Riders, where he played a pivotal role in guiding the team to victory in the IPL 2024 season. His leadership was also instrumental in helping the Lucknow Super Giants secure consecutive playoff appearances in the IPL.

With a clear focus on future successes, Gambhir and his new coaching staff will look to set the foundation for a strong Indian squad, aiming for triumphs in both bilateral series and major international tournaments.
