Gautam Gambhir announced his retirement from all forms of cricket a few days back. The star Indian opening batsman was one of the best India have ever had. His match winning performances for India in the World Cup Finals of the 2007 T20 tournament and the 50-over 2011 tournament will go down in Indian cricket history. He is currently playing his last and final game for his domestic team Delhi versus Andhra Pradesh at his home ground of Feroz Shah Kotla.
He was recently interviewed by Hindustan Times and asked who he thought was one of Team India’s best batsman. He said that he admired the batting and the confidence of his former teammate Virat Kohli. He also believed that Kohli was the most important factor in the team if they are to win the 2019 World Cup in England. Kohli has been in terrific ODI form this year, averaging more than a 100. We hope he carries it into the World Cup too.
