Gautam Gambhir: Ever since Gautam Gambhir took over as the coach of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) of the Indian Premier League, the team has performed commendably. KKR team qualified for the playoffs by topping the points table. Amidst the IPL, BCCI announced that Gautam Gambhir will be the next head coach of India. While talking on Ravichandran Ashwin’s YouTube show, Gautam Gambhir said that IPL is the basis of selection only in T20 and domestic cricket tournaments should be given priority for selection in other formats.

Gautam Gambhir gave his views on team selection

While questioning Gautam Gambhir in the show, Ashwin said, “You had said that the team should not be selected after looking at any one tournament. You can cite the T20 World Cup or India’s T20 setup. There are many formats. “Different teams are selected for each.” Worldwide formats. As the 2007 T20 World Cup showed, England had assembled a completely different T20 team. How do you select players for the international team?

Gautam Gambhir responded aggressively to Ashwin’s comment and said, ‘T20 World Cup and India’s T20 team should be selected from IPL. The ODI format should be chosen based on the success of players in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, while the Ranji Trophy should be used to select players for the Tests. Because selecting players for ODI or Test in a tournament like IPL is a very quick task. Because many young players do not focus on red ball cricket or the ODI format. In such a situation, it will be exactly like walking on the beach.

Let us tell you that a few days ago the Board of Control for Cricket in India had announced that Gautam Gambhir will be the head coach of the Indian team. Actually, after the T20 World Cup, Rahul Dravid’s tenure as head coach is about to end. In such a situation, BCCI is searching for a new coach for the Indian team. Now it remains to be seen whether Gambhir is interested in this post or not.
