IPL 2023: Gautam Gambhir, who made Kolkata Knight Riders the champion twice in IPL, has expressed a great desire regarding IPL. He has said that he wants to see a big change in IPL. He believes that the Indian Premier League is a good start for Indian cricket in the last few years. He has also said that he wants to see a change in the IPL that only Indians should coach the Indian team and the IPL franchises.
Gautam Gambhir said on the occasion of India Sports Awards, ‘IPL is the best thing that has happened to Indian cricket. I can say this with my sense. After the IPL started, it has been criticized a lot. Every time the Indian cricket team does not do well, IPL is blamed. Which is not fair. If we don’t do well in ICC tournaments, blame the players, blame the performance, but it is unfair to point fingers at IPL.

The former batsman further said, ‘One good thing that has happened in Indian cricket is that Indians have now started coaching the national cricket team. I firmly believe that (a) an Indian should be the coach of the Indian team. All these foreign coaches, whom we gave a lot of importance, come here to earn money and then they disappear. Emotions are important in sports. Only those people who have represented their country can be passionate about Indian cricket.
The mentor of the Lucknow team, Gambhir said, ‘I am the mentor of Lucknow Super Giants. One thing that I want to change is that I want to see all Indian coaches in IPL. Because no Indian coach gets a chance in Big Bash or any other foreign league. India is a superpower in cricket, but our coaches don’t get a chance anywhere. All foreigners come here and get top jobs. We are more democratic and flexible than other leagues. We need to give more opportunities to our people.
