The encounter took place amidst the celebratory atmosphere at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, where KKR secured their third IPL title. Gambhir, who led KKR to victory in 2012 and 2014 as captain, assumed the role of mentor this season, contributing to the team’s remarkable success. Social media buzzed with speculation about Gambhir’s potential candidacy for the national team’s coaching role, especially after reports suggested him as a frontrunner. Meanwhile, Shah clarified earlier that the BCCI hadn’t approached any Australian for the coaching position, indicating that contenders like Stephen Fleming and Gambhir are under consideration.

Gambhir’s emotional embrace with Sunil Narine and owner Shah Rukh Khan further highlighted his integral role in KKR’s journey to victory. With the BCCI inviting applications for the head coach position until June 27, Gambhir’s future aspirations remain subject to speculation.
