Within the Indian team, Gambhir wants to promote a culture of discipline, excellence, and teamwork in his new role. His focus is on developing fresh talent and getting the team ready for international challenges. Honorary Secretary Jay Shah pointed out how well Gautam Gambhir’s vision matched the board’s objectives, while BCCI President Roger Binny expressed trust in Gambhir’s leadership and vision.
