Who is the contender to become the Indian head coach?

BCCI has started the search for the new coach of the Indian men's cricket team. On Monday, the board asked applicants with a tenure of 3.5 years to apply by May 27. The tenure of the current coach of the Indian team, Rahul Dravid, will end after the T20 World Cup. In such a situation, the tenure of the new coach will start from July 1.


BCCI is eyeing many former players and best coaches for this important post. These include former Indian players VVS Laxman and Gautam Gambhir. The names of Australian coaches Justin Langer and Stephen Fleming are also being discussed.

VVS Laxman

If VVS Laxman applies then he will be the best option. Laxman, 49, has been the NCA chief for three years and knows the next generation of Indian cricketers well. When Dravid was on leave, he also coached the senior team. Under his coach, India has played the Asian Games, bilateral T20 series against Australia and series in England, New Zealand and Ireland.

Gautam Gambhir

Gautam Gambhir, who has been playing cricket at the top level for the last 10 years, understands every format. His technical skills cannot be denied. Apart from winning two IPL trophies as KKR captain, he is credited with taking Lucknow Supergiants to the playoffs in his first two years. With him as the coach, KKR has made a great comeback in this season of IPL and is on top in the points table. Now it remains to be seen whether he applies for this post or not.

Justin Langer

Ashes and T20 World Cup winning Australian coach Langer is a good strategist and strict in terms of discipline. He recently said that he might consider the possibility of becoming India's coach, but it is a tough job mentally and physically.

Stephen Fleming

The name of Stephen Fleming, former New Zealand player and coach of CSK, one of the most successful teams of IPL for the last several years, is also being discussed. Currently he is the coach of CSK and Johannesburg Super Kings team in SA20. Since he has rejected BCCI's offer in the past, it remains to be seen whether he will apply or not.
