Speaking to the Times of India (TOI), stylish Indian southpaw Gambhir gushed over the Indian team’s efforts on the field and said, “Brilliant first session for India. I thought that the bowlers were brilliant.”
He went on to appreciate the three pacers for their precision and impeccable bowling and added, “Ishant Sharma was unbelievable in his first spell. If you can get a wicket in your first over, it always sets the game and the day for you. I thought his opening spell was very, very good. Plus, it was Bumrah who struck early as well and backed up by Mohammed Shami.”
Lauding the indomitable spirit that the Indian team have shown in the third Test as a recovery from being 2-0 down in the first two games, Gambhir concluded, “I think the first session was completely dominated by India and I’m sure that they’ll be looking to finish this game off today. 6 wickets away from a very, very important win, it just shows the character of the team as well. When you’re 2-0 down and the way you bounce back in this Test match, I think it was a complete performance by both batters and bowlers.”
