Gautam Gambhir Bio

Fieriness and aggression are the two most important characteristics in an attacking opener. Gautam Gambhir has these two factors in abundance and this has served him well during his time in international cricket.

Having been a consistent run-scorer in domestic circuit at the start of the new millennium, Gambhir's first innings in international cricket was stop-start to say the least. He was unable to establish himself in the Test and ODI squad and drifted out of the team.

Following India's first-round exit in the 2007 World Cup, Gambhir was selected in the team for the inaugural ICC World Twenty20 in South Africa. In the final against Pakistan, he hit a match-winning 75 to help India win the title in a closely fought match. The period from 2008-2010 was a watershed in Gambhir's career. He excelled in all formats and along with his Delhi mate, Virender Sehwag, formed a lethal opening partnership.

In 2008, Gambhir stroked 1134 runs in Tests at an average of 70.87 while in ODIs, he smashed 1119 runs at a whopping average of 90.53. The highlights in the year was a brilliant 206 against Australia in Delhi while in ODIs, he scored 440 runs at an average of 55 in the CB Series featuring Australia and Sri Lanka. From December 2008 to January 2009, Gambhir scored five centuries in five Tests, making him the fourth player to achieve this feat.

His exploits led him to be the ICC Player of the Year in 2009. His good form continued and in the 2011 World Cup, Gambhir played an important knock at a vital time. In the final against Sri Lanka, he scored 97 and helped India win the World Cup after 28 years. In 2012, Gambhir was pivotal to Kolkata Knight Riders winning the IPL for the first time.

Following the highs, Gambhir's form slid away drastically in the tours to England and Australia. Having endured a tough time in the series against England, Gambhir was dropped from the team and despite scoring two fifties and a century so far in the Ranji Trophy, Gambhir was not selected for the tour to South Africa.
