Gautam Gambhir led a phenomenal career as a key opening batsman for India and Kolkata Knight Riders( IPL ). However, following a series of disappointing performances, the star cricketer found it tough to make it to the national team as many youngsters were already queued up to prove themselves on the international level.
Surprisingly, the player was not retained by KKR franchise for the 2018 season. The real reason behind this shocking decision is unknown. However, Gambhir’s fans were pleased that their favorite player will return back to the home team(Delhi Daredevils). Sadly, the player had a dull start to the season and eventually gave up the captaincy duties for the team.
To everyone’s surprise, Gautam Gambhir was left out from the playing eleven yesterday. A few sources said that it was Gambhir’s decision to give a chance to the youngsters and decided to take the back seat with team’s progression in mind. It is clearly evident that Gambhir’s career as a player is nearing its end. This is really a sad end to the 2011 world cup hero who played a match-winning inning in the final and turned the odds in our favor.
