IIE Digital Desk : Gautam Gambhir, the esteemed former captain of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), may be stepping away from the franchise after the IPL 2024 season to take on national duties. With the consent of KKR co-owner Shah Rukh Khan, Gambhir is considering this significant career shift to contribute to Indian cricket on a broader scale.

Gambhir's tenure with KKR has been marked by notable successes, including leading the team to IPL championships in 2012 and 2014. His leadership and strategic acumen have been pivotal to KKR’s achievements. However, with growing responsibilities and a potential role in national cricket administration or coaching, Gambhir is contemplating this transition.

Shah Rukh Khan, who has always supported Gambhir's decisions, is reportedly in favor of this move, recognizing the value Gambhir can bring to Indian cricket at a national level. This change, while significant for KKR, is seen as a positive development for the broader cricket community. Fans of KKR and Gambhir alike are eager to see how this shift unfolds. While it marks the end of an era for KKR, it also opens new avenues for Gambhir to influence Indian cricket's future.
