India skipper MS Dhoni said on Tuesday that to lose Gautam Gambhir to an injury would hurt his side but felt that he was confident that one of the team members will stand up and fill the void, if created.

A decision on whether Gambhir will stay on in England or return home will be made after his consultation with a medical consultation in Manchester. Dhoni though was generous in his praise for the south-paw.

"I do not know the technical details of his injury but he has done really well for us. Not only opening for the side but he has also played in the number three position for us and playes the spin department well. It will be a big loss (if he is ruled out) but some one will take the responibility," he said at a press conference.
