Gambhir Vs Virat: After the defeat of RCB, Gautam Gambhir said that 8 years is a long time for any captain to prove himself. Let’s take a look at those five questions of Gambhir, who threw away Virat’s captaincy.
new Delhi. Thirty-six figures have been discussed between Team India captain Virat Kohli and former Indian cricket team opener Gautam Gambhir. In 2013, these two players clashed on the beach field. Gambhir was the captain of KKR in those days, while Virat was handling the front on behalf of RCB. This fight was discussed a lot in those days. Since then, whenever these two players get a chance to attack each other, they do not leave.
Gambhir’s target on Virat
As soon as Virat’s team was cleared from IPL, Gautam Gambhir blasted his captain, questioning his captaincy. After the defeat of RCB, Gambhir spoke to ESPN Cricinfo saying that 8 years is a long time for any captain to prove himself. Let’s take a look at those five questions of Gambhir, who threw away Virat’s captaincy.
- ‘If RCB had commanded me, I would have removed 100 per cent Virat Kohli from captaincy. 8 years without the trophy is a long time in the IPL. Don’t you keep another player without a trophy as well. It is a matter of responsibility.
- ‘I am not against Virat, but he should come out himself and say that no one else is responsible for this poor performance’.
- 8 years is a very long time. If you see R Ashwin, after 2 years, he could not give the result, then Kings XI Punjab removed him from the captaincy. You talk about Dhoni and Rohit Sharma. Dhoni has won three titles. Rohit has made Mumbai the champion four times. I am sure that if Rohit too does not come up with good results for 8 years, he too would be removed from the captaincy front. There should not be a different scale for everyone.
- ‘No matter how much you defend them, according to me this team was not able to reach the playoffs. They are repeatedly saying that they have reached the playoffs, but all things are useless. If Virat had to open, then why did he not open as an opener from the first match?
- ‘Until leadership is not held responsible for the defeat, it will continue to happen. I am very sad for the support staff, coaches and batting coaches. Every year the coach is changed, but the problem is elsewhere.
