BCCI secretary Jay Shah appointed Gautam Gambhir as the new head coach of Team India on Tuesday, July 9. Since then, the question remains how much salary will Gambhir get from BCCI? It is being told that his salary will also be almost the same as that of Rahul Dravid.

Gautam Gambhir will be seen with Team India in a few days.

The wait of Team India fans is over. Gautam Gambhir has become the new head coach of Team India. He will replace Rahul Dravid, who ended his journey after making Team India the T20 World Champion. Now the era of Gautam Gambhir will begin in Indian cricket, who has come to Team India after making Kolkata Knight Riders the champion of IPL 2024. Fans have high hopes from Gautam Gambhir that he will repeat the success like Kolkata with Team India as well. Apart from these expectations, a question is also on everyone's lips - how much salary will Gautam Gambhir get for becoming the coach of Team India?

Before becoming the coach of Team India, Gautam Gambhir was the mentor of Kolkata Knight Riders, while before that he played the same role in Lucknow Super Giants for 2 consecutive seasons. Although it was never revealed how much salary Gambhir was getting from Kolkata, but some reports claimed that his contract with KKR was about Rs 25 crore. Despite such a huge salary, he agreed to become the coach of Team India and the reason for this is his love and passion for the country and Indian cricket.

No tension about salary

This passion is the reason why Gambhir took the responsibility of Team India's coach even before the salary was finalized. Yes, this may be shocking but it is true. PTI's report claims that the money talks between Gambhir and the Indian board were not finalized but Gambhir decided to start his journey with Team India without worrying about it. It has been told quoting BCCI sources that Gambhir's full focus is currently on choosing his support staff and salary is not his concern.

Will earn as much as Dravid

The report states that just like Ravi Shastri had agreed to become the director of Team India in 2014 before the money was finalised, Gambhir has also decided to start his work before the salary talks are finalised. However, it is clear that Gambhir's salary will be the same or close to Rahul Dravid's. Dravid used to get Rs 12 crore per year.
