Former India captain and BCCI president Sourav Ganguly shared a cryptic post.

Under the mentorship of Gautam Gambhir, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) won their third Indian Premier League (IPL) title. They defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL 2024 grand finale in Chennai to clinch the trophy after a span of 10 years. As a player, Gambhir won two IPL trophies with KKR in the 2012 and 2014 editions.

After winning the IPL 2024 trophy, it was reported that the 2007 World T20 and 2011 ODI World Cup winner, Gambhir, is the front-runner for the India head coach role.

Currently, former Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid is serving as the head coach for the Men in Blue, and his tenure will come to an end after the conclusion of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 in June. It is to be noted that Dravid has reportedly refused BCCI’s offer to continue as the head coach.

The deadline for applying for the post of head coach for the Men in Blue team ended on May 27. Notably, the new head coach will have a three-year contract until the end of 2027 ODI World Cup.

Amid all the speculations about Gambhir becoming the new head coach for the Men in Blue, former BCCI selector Sourav Ganguly shared a cryptic post on his ‘X’ (formerly Twitter) handle on May 30.

The former Indian skipper has advised the BCCI that they need to choose the coach wisely, given how important a role it plays in shaping a player’s future.

“The coach’s significance in one’s life, their guidance, and relentless training shape the future of any person, both on and off the field. So choose the coach and institution wisely,” Sourav Ganguly wrote on X.
