What does Gautam Gambhir's appointment as India coach mean for Virat Kohli and team?

Former India opener, two-time World Cup winner and IPL stalwart Gautam Gambhir was on Tuesday appointed as coach of the senior men's team, marking the beginning of a new era in Indian cricket.

Gambhir's appointment was a formality after the Indian cricket board expressed their interest in him following a remarkably successful stint at Kolkata Knight Riders. As mentor, Gambhir guided the team to the Indian Premier League title this summer having also won the title twice as captain.
