Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli to be dropped as Gautam Gambhir sets 5 massive conditions in front of BCCI


Former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir is all set to take the coaching role of Team India after the T20 World Cup 2024. The KKR mentor was interviewed by the BCCI’s Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) recently along with WV Raman.

There have been several reports which have suggested that Gautam Gambhir is the front-runner to take the spot. It is learned that things between him and the BCCI have been finalised and his appointment as the head coach of the team remains a formality.

The latest report in Navbharat Times has claimed that Gautam Gambhir has kept five conditions to accept the BCCI’s proposal for the head coach of the team. One of the conditions that he has kept is he wants full control of the team without any interference from the board.

Another condition that Gautam Gambhir has kept is he wants to bring his coaching staff. He has stated that he will be selecting his support staff, including batting, fielding and bowling coaches. But one condition that he has kept has caught the attention of many. 

Gautam Gambhir has reportedly stated that if senior players Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammad Shami fail to win the Champions Trophy 2025, then the players might be dropped from the side. If they fail to win ICC events then they will have no chance in the side.

Another condition that Gautam Gambhir has set is he wants separate teams in red-ball cricket and white-ball cricket. The KKR mentor will also be working on the roadmap for the ICC World Cup 2027 as soon as he joins the Indian team.

There is no clarity that Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli will be part of the ICC World Cup 2027 or not as Gambhir has categorically stated that he wants to be moved forward from the senior player if they fail to win the ICC events. There are high chance that they might get dropped from red-ball cricket as well if they fail to win the WTC title.
