Gautam Gambhir Profile

Definitely one of India’s unsung cricketing heroes. Twice have India won the World Cup since 2007 – the inaugural World T20 in the same year and the 2011 World Cup, and for that they have Gautam Gambhir plenty to thank.


Gambhir was the highest scorer in both the finals, scoring 75 in 2007 against Pakistan and 97 against Sri Lanka in 2011. His innings against Sri Lanka was particularly profound considering India, chasing 275 to win, had lost their star batsmen Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar inside seven overs. Under tremendous pressure, Gambhir played probably the innings of his life.


Besides that Gambhir became the number one Test batsman in 2009 and the same year was conferred the ICC Test Player of the Year award. He is the only Indian batsman to have scored more than 300 runs in four successive Test series.


Gambhir had a highly successful career across all formats until a dip in form saw him lose his place from all Indian teams. After that he switched his attention completely to the Indian Premier League and led Kolkata Knight Riders to two trophies, leading many into thinking this about him - “the best captain India never had”. Gambhir had made a big impression as a stand-in captain in six ODIs between 2010 and 2011 and registered wins in all of those matches. Gambhir made a brief return to the Test team in 2016 and played two games against New Zealand and England and got moderate success before being dropped.
