‘Gautam Gambhir not a bad choice for India head coach job but his working style like a strict father’ | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: With Rahul Dravid‘s tenure as India head coach set to end after the upcoming T20 World Cup in the Americas, BCCI‘s search for the next man for the top job is currently underway.
From Australian great Ricky Ponting to CSK coach Stephen Fleming to current KKR mentor Gautam Gambhir to spin great Harbhajan Singh, quite a few names have been floating around according to several reports in the media.
Among the names doing the rounds, Gambhir, who helped India win the ODI World Cup final in 2011 alongside MS Dhoni and led KKR to twin Indian Premier League titles in 2012 and 2014 is hotly anticipated to be a good choice for the role.
The 42-year-old has been known for his outspoken attitude and serious demeanour and his former teammate Akaash Chopra feels that the India head coach job may not suit him.
“Not a bad choice, there is no doubt about that, because he is a straightforward person. He knows how to manage and build a team. I really rate him high when it comes to the auction. However, there will be no auction for the Indian team,” Chopra said on his YouTube channel.
“Gautam Gambhir – the coach, Very strong personality. When there is a transition, a new captain is coming, then yes. However, if the team has a lot of seniors already, I will be a little wary because Gauti’s style of working is almost like a strict father. When the father is strict, the children have to be a little careful,” Chopra added.
“When you have very senior players in the team, you are looking for a big brother who keeps his hand on their shoulders and doesn’t try to impose himself. With Gautam that’s not going to happen. It’s very simple with him. My way or the highway. When it’s ‘my way’ then every time, especially when seniors are there, things may not always fall your way. You can do that with young players. That is what I feel,” Chopra said.
Gambhir recently opened up on his outspoken attitude and pointed out it’s in his nature to be aggressive.
“I’m not breaking any rules. I want to be as aggressive as I can be. And what’s wrong with that?,” Gambhir said.
“That’s my nature. That’s my characteristic because, for me, winning, it’s an obsession, and I’m obsessed with winning. That’s the problem I have,” he added.
