Gautam Gambhir is yet to decide about his second innings, as he is still evaluating whether to get into coaching or mentorship after joining the retired Indian cricketers’ family last week.
However, the one thing is clear that the member of World Cup 2011 and T20 World Cup 2007 winning Indian teams wants to be part of the action in the game of cricket even after retirement, but doesn’t believe in training himself to become a coach, saying coaching is not rocket science, but it is about sharing your experience.
Gambhir told ANI on Wednesday (December 12), “Haven’t decided about it (coaching), but then I like being part of an action. It is something that has always excited me for all my life. Let’s see, I am going to evaluate whether to get into coaching or mentorship.”
He continued, “I have been a senior player for Delhi for a very long time and mentored those young kids as well. Coaching is not rocket science. I think it is about sharing your experience and being as honest as you can. It is just your passion whether you like it or you don’t. And If you like it you will enjoy and help someone become better and try to achieve his dream. So that is something that excites me to become.”
Meanwhile, the 37-year-old also commented on the Mithali Raj-Ramesh Powar row. He signed off by saying, “It is something unfortunate. These controversies shouldn’t happen. I think it has more to do with ego. Whatever BCCI would decide, it will be best in the interest of the team. Ultimately, it is not about what an individual want. Whatever is better for the team that should happen.”
