Journey of Gambhir: From Cricket Star to Mentor
Beyond being a dog lover, Gautam Gambhir’s extraordinary batsmanship has made a lasting impression on Indian cricket. Cricket fans hold Gambhir in high regard because of his tremendous on-field accomplishments and his services to the game. Gambhir moved smoothly into the world of sports broadcasting after quitting international cricket in 2016, where his observations and analysis continue to enthrall viewers.
Gambhir’s outstanding batting performances have made him one of the significant contributors to Indian cricket. The 2011 ODI World Cup final and the ICC T20 World Cup 2027 final would be the pinnacle of his remarkable career. In the summit match against Pakistan, he struck 75 runs off 54 deliveries and was declared the “player of the match.”
India won by just 5 runs in a dramatic match against their fiercest rivals. Gambhir came to the rescue again during the 2011 ODI World Cup final between Sri Lanka and India. Gambhir’s century of runs drove the team’s recovery after India lost their opening duo of Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag early on. He ran out in the nervous nineties and lost out on a well-earned century.
Gambhir was just named the coach of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) team in the forthcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, confirming his continuing influence. Many supporters have expressed their excitement over his return to the KKR family in a new capacity, and they look forward to his leadership and mentorship of the squad. Before the 2024 IPL, he was named the mentor of the Kolkata Knight Riders, having previously guided the Lucknow Super Giants in the IPL until 2022.
His retirement from all forms of cricket was announced in December 2018. He was elected to the Lok Sabha from East Delhi in 2019 after joining the Bhartiya Janata Party.
