Gautam Gambhir Offered Blank Cheque by Shah Rukh Khan: According to reports, Kolkata Knight Riders mentor Gautam Gambhir is first on the list of top contenders to replace Rahul Dravid as India men’s cricket team head coach. Gambhir has shown interest in taking up the post but has not formally applied.

Gambhir will meet BCCI officials on the day of IPL 2024 final as KKR prepare to face Sunrisers Hyderabad in Chennai on May 27.

KKR co-owner Shah Rukh Khan will have to convince Gambhir to release him after convincing him to rejoin the franchise before the IPL 2024 in a mentorship role.

According to the publication, Shah Rukh offered Gambhir a blank check before the ongoing IPL season to manage KKR for the next 10 years.

The former India captain has demonstrated his management skills in the IPL after joining Lucknow Super Giants as a mentor when they made their debut in 2022.

According to reports, Shah Rukh then convinced Gambhir to join KKR before the 2024 IPL.

As KKR’s captain, Gambhir won both of the franchise’s IPL titles. After his arrival, the franchise topped the league stage and qualified for the final.

Apart from Gambhir, a few high-profile names have been linked with the India head coaching job, including VVS Laxman, Ricky Ponting, Justin Langer, and Stephen Fleming.

It has been reported that Ponting held discussions with the Indian team about coaching during the IPL 2024, but he did not show interest because of his long-term commitment and his tendency to be on the road for nearly 10 months a year. However, BCCI has denied approaching anyone for the position individually.
