BCCI Urged to Consider Zaheer or Nehra for India’s Bowling Coach

The BCCI has been requested to decide between Zaheer Khan or Ashish Nehra as India’s next bowling coach, joining Gautam Gambhir on the coaching staff. Both Khan and Nehra, former Indian cricketers known for their expertise in bowling, could bring valuable experience to the team. Khan was renowned for his left-arm pace, while Nehra excelled with his left-arm fast-medium deliveries. Their appointment could significantly enhance the skills and strategies of current Indian bowlers, aiming to strengthen the team’s performance in international cricket.

Gautam Gambhir is set to be named the next head coach of the Indian cricket team, replacing Rahul Dravid. Gambhir, who has twice won the World Cup with India, completed his initial interview with the Cricket Administration Committee on Tuesday. The announcement of Gambhir’s appointment is expected soon, pending final decisions. His potential as head coach is based on his distinguished career and leadership in cricket, making him a strong candidate to lead the national team into the future.

With one session remaining, the former left-handed batsman is leading the race for a key position in Indian cricket. WV Raman and another candidate from abroad are also in contention. The ex-cricketer’s experience and skills in the game make him a strong contender. The final decision is imminent, marking a crucial moment for Indian cricket as the selected individual prepares to take on significant responsibilities within the national team.

Kamran Akmal About Gautam Gambhir:

Gambhir hasn’t formally coached a team yet, but his track record speaks volumes. His leadership was pivotal in Kolkata Knight Riders’ three IPL victories – twice as captain and once as mentor. Gambhir’s experience proves he understands how to achieve success and lead a talented team to triumph.

Kamran Akmal, the former Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman, believes that after Dravid, Gautam Gambhir is the most qualified to lead Indian cricket forward. Akmal points to Gambhir’s impressive track record, suggesting that Gambhir’s experience and skills make him a standout choice for the role.

Kamran Akmal said, “ Whatever Gambhir touches turns into gold. The team he joins becomes successful. Team India doesn’t need any foreign coaches. They have plenty of options and talent. After Dravid, no one can be the best and bigger than Gautam Gambhir. He was a big player and will become a great coach too. He is the best option India have right now.”

Gambhir’s impact extends beyond KKR. As mentor of Lucknow Super Giants in their first two IPL seasons in 2022 and 2023, LSG made it to the Playoffs, with Gambhir credited for their success. However, leading Team India requires a capable coaching staff. Rumors hint that Jonty Rhodes, who worked with Gambhir at LSG as a fielding coach, is in discussions with him, though nothing is finalized yet. Gambhir will also seek new batting and bowling coaches to join his team.

He further added, “Gambhir was with Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and they did really well under him. He became a mentor of KKR and they became champions. He is an amazing planner and has a brilliant cricketing mind. I have played a lot of cricket with him. We have been together for a long time. We played, had food and had chats together. We are still good friends. We are still in touch. He should be the head coach and India can go for Ashish Nehra or Zaheer Khan as bowling coach.”
