He wasn’t a part of the original squad picked for the series while he deserved, but fate had its way to give Gautam Gambhir what he had worked really hard for. Rahul’s hamstring injury paved way for Gambhir’s inclusion and the southpaw would do all in his power to make this opportunity count. It has come after a wait of 2 years and this time he would sit with glue in hand to stick upon and grip it.

Gauti toiled in domestic cricket and kept scoring runs without making any noise, when asked about his comeback plans he always projected his performance and said he was not thinking about it. When the call to lead the India Blue team arrived it was a potent chance for him and he ended with silver in hand. The left-hander scored four half centuries in five innings and led his team from the front. Like Sourav Ganguly said “He also knows that the opportunities will be limited and the first two innings will be very important to get the belief back among the captain and the selectors.”
