‘Because he deserves to lead…’: Wife Natasha Jain reacts to Gautam Gambhir’s appointment as India’s head coach | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Former opening batter Gautam Gambhir has been appointed as the new head coach of the Indian men’s cricket team. The announcement came on Tuesday, with Gambhir set to take charge from the upcoming tour of Sri Lanka later this month.
Gambhir, who mentored Kolkata Knight Riders to the IPL 2024 title, will replace Rahul Dravid, who ended his tenure with the triumphant campaign at the T20 World Cup.

In response to this news, Gambhir’s wife Natasha Jain expressed her pride and support for her husband through Instagram stories. She shared her excitement by writing, “Because he deserves to lead…,” showcasing her confidence in Gambhir’s capabilities to guide the national team.


While Gambhir has not officially coached a professional cricket team, his successful stint as a mentor in the IPL has laid a strong foundation for his new role. BCCI secretary Jay Shah confirmed the appointment, highlighting Gambhir’s potential to bring success to the national team.

Gambhir’s transition from player to mentor has been marked by his ability to inspire and lead teams effectively. As a two-time World Cup winner and former politician, his diverse experiences are expected to bring a fresh perspective to the Indian cricket team.
As Gambhir prepares to step into this pivotal role, the cricketing community will be watching closely to see if the 42-year-old can continue his track record of success and lead India to new heights on the international stage.
