NEW DELHI: Besides the fact that Gautam Gambhir is a terrific batsman, one other thing you can’t deny about the Delhi player is that his passion towards the game is second to none. He is known to wear his heart on his shoulders and one can only imagine how much he would have missed being a part of the Indian team for the two years.
Gambhir finds himself in the Indian squad for the 2nd Test in Kolkata at Eden Gardens and there is absolutely no one who thinks he didn’t deserve the comeback. The 34-year-old Delhi batsman, who played his last Test in August 2014 on India’s tour to England, was impressive in the recent Duleep Trophy, where he scored four back-to-back half-centuries including two 90 plus scores.
In five Test matches that Gambhir has played in Eden Gardens, Kolkata the left-hand batsman has scored 253 runs at an average of 31.62. Gambhir on Tuesday returned to India’s Test squad after two years in place of injured KL Rahul for the last two matches of the Test series against New Zealand.
