The Board of Control for Cricket in India had earlier invited, and the deadline was 27 May. The new coach's contract would be valid for all three formats—Tests, ODIs, and T20Is—from July 2024 to December 2027.

India's current head coach, Rahul Dravid, was extended until this year's ICC Men's T20 World Cup. He took over the charge after the 2021 T20 World Cup in November.

In June, Gambhir had said that he would love to coach the Indian cricket team if given a chance.

Currently, Gambhir mentors the Kolkata Knight Riders team and was part of India's T20 World Cup winning team in 2007 and the 2011 ODI World Cup side.
