Gautam Gambhir said : "See there is nothing wrong in losing. It's absolutely fine. One team has to win, one team has to lose. But there is a lot wrong in giving me. Today I thought that we gave up. We were weak, and honestly, there is no place for being weak in a tournament like IPL or in sport. That is where the problem is. We have beaten teams in this competition and have played really good cricket. But today I thought that we probably lacked that game sense which is more important," "We knew that they bowled well and we expect them to bowl well. It's a world-class competition, you're playing against international bowlers. And we want people to challenge us no doubt about it. That is what we play the sport for. We practice day in and day out because we want to be challenged" External link

Gautam Gambhir said ( about Mohsin Khan ) : "For me, the standout player was Mohsin Khan. You can't ask for someone like him and this kind of a spell on such a wicket at Wankhede – four overs 4/16… unbelievable. But we still haven't played out best cricket and there is still a long way to go. Mohsin's over turned the game in our favour. It's not about one over, but the spell that he bowled. And that one over where he got Rovman Powell and Shardul Thakur out was the turning point. Young guy with such a great head on his shoulders. Too much of confidence, backing his skills. If the guy keeps working hard, he would probably become a very good player," External link

Gautam Gambhir said ( about Virat Kohli ) : “He has got many options. He plays spin very well, has got all the shots; he is a 360-degree player as well.

We say at times that two spinners cannot play together but if you have two such quality spinners and Jadeja can give you quality batting like this at No. 7, then there is no problem in that,” External link

HindustanTimes Saturday, March 5, 2022 7:15:00 PM EAT

Gautam Gambhir said : “Ashwin and Jadeja are both bowlers who can bat as well, it can give you an exceptional attack. You can control the game also and give breaks to your fast bowlers as well. Along with that, even if there is a slight help from the pitch, Jadeja and Ashwin can become a lethal combination,” “R Ashwin disappointed me a little on the last tour of South Africa because the experience he has and the sort of bowler he is, I would want to see him bowl with an attacking mindset. We have seen two types of Ashwin, the Melbourne spell he bowled was according to me, the best spell by an off-spinner but in South Africa he bowled with an extremely defensive thinking,” External link

Gautam Gambhir said : “I know some people say that we overpaid certain players but in Avesh's case, he's young and can bowl quick. He's someone you can build the Indian bowling with, and build the bowling department for the future. While people only talk about the present, we thought about the future as well.

If Bumrah is rested for the next series which he should be, then Krishna should be used in the West Indies series.

Gautam Gambhir said : “Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Ravi Ashwin should be rested for the next match, and changes in the batting order aren't needed. Jayant Yadav should be given a chance along with seamers like Mohammed Siraj and Prasidh Krishna. India need to develop their second-string team and gives chances to bowlers who can bowl above 140 kmph in South Africa,” External link

I'd recommend that there is something for everyone on his Insta handle. There are fitness videos, dancing videos with his mother, dubsmash videos and there is also a video where Shikhar is playing the flute with perhaps his Guru," "Trust me, it's an absolute delight, all notes are in proper place just like a perfectly struck left-hander's cover drive with the bat finishing on his right shoulder.

Gautam Gambhir added ( about Ekke Primauno ) : "The marketing guys would like us to believe that Test cricket is alive and kicking. But sadly, despite those powerful scenes, Test cricket the world over is not producing the requisite standards. England are struggling, so are Sri Lanka, Pakistan and West Indies. I am sorry, but beyond a point you cannot live on history or legacy. West Indies WAS a great side, England WAS a top side in patches, Pakistan and Sri Lanka USED to produce fantastic cricket. Sport is played in present, history and nostalgia can only tickle the romance of the whole scene. At present only India, Australia and New Zealand are producing some decent standards. That is why it was surprising to see India go down to an ordinary South African team. I am not too excited about the win in Centurion. If anything, India should have dominated this series. Therefore the loss in Johannesburg should really hurt the group," External link

Gautam Gambhir wrote : "The other forced change will be if Mohammad Siraj is still not fit. There will be a temptation to play the experienced Ishant Sharma in his place. He is the guy who has played over 100 Tests for the country and has captured in excess of 300 Test wickets. With due respect to Ishant though, I'd be more inclined to play Umesh Yadav. For me, he is a like for like replacement for Siraj. Both have similar attacking style of bowling and are skiddy customers. Let's see if the Indian think tank agrees with me," External link

Gautam Gambhir explained ( about Mohamed Siraj ) : “India missed a fourth seamer. If Mohammed Siraj would have been 100 per cent fit then the captain would have been able to rotate his two key pacers better. And you know that once the ball gets wet, it won't help Ashwin anymore. So literally, you were playing with just three pacers. And when you expect only three pacers to pick the remaining eight wickets, you can't expect any of them to have an off day. So had Siraj been fit, we would have seen a better performance from the pace attack,” External link

Gautam Gambhir said : “The biggest upset in this batting lineup is Hardik Pandya. He hasn’t played any cricket, he is just a one-format player for me now. He only plays white-ball cricket and hasn’t delivered this year and he’s got into the T20 World Cup side when he hasn’t bowled either. So that’s a huge surprise” External link

Gautam Gambhir said ( about Ravichandran Ashwin ) : "I back Ravichandran Ashwin 100 percent. What he did was well within the rules. He has done nothing wrong. And there are so many people who are jumping into it, they have got nothing to do with it. Probably to increase some social media followers or to have some presence somewhere so that people can talk about it. It makes no sense. R Ashwin is absolutely correct," External link

Gautam Gambhir said : "See there is nothing wrong in losing. It's absolutely fine. One team has to win, one team has to lose. But there is a lot wrong in giving me. Today I thought that we gave up. We were weak, and honestly, there is no place for being weak in a tournament like IPL or in sport. That is where the problem is. We have beaten teams in this competition and have played really good cricket. But today I thought that we probably lacked that game sense which is more important," "We knew that they bowled well and we expect them to bowl well. It's a world-class competition, you're playing against international bowlers. And we want people to challenge us no doubt about it. That is what we play the sport for. We practice day in and day out because we want to be challenged" External link

Gautam Gambhir said ( about Mohsin Khan ) : "For me, the standout player was Mohsin Khan. You can't ask for someone like him and this kind of a spell on such a wicket at Wankhede – four overs 4/16… unbelievable. But we still haven't played out best cricket and there is still a long way to go. Mohsin's over turned the game in our favour. It's not about one over, but the spell that he bowled. And that one over where he got Rovman Powell and Shardul Thakur out was the turning point. Young guy with such a great head on his shoulders. Too much of confidence, backing his skills. If the guy keeps working hard, he would probably become a very good player," External link

I've got my own opinions, he's got his own opinion. I've actually been the vice-captain the longest time when he was the captain...

We say at times that two spinners cannot play together but if you have two such quality spinners and Jadeja can give you quality batting like this at No. 7, then there is no problem in that,” External link

HindustanTimes Saturday, March 5, 2022 7:15:00 PM EAT

Gautam Gambhir said : “Ashwin and Jadeja are both bowlers who can bat as well, it can give you an exceptional attack. You can control the game also and give breaks to your fast bowlers as well. Along with that, even if there is a slight help from the pitch, Jadeja and Ashwin can become a lethal combination,” “R Ashwin disappointed me a little on the last tour of South Africa because the experience he has and the sort of bowler he is, I would want to see him bowl with an attacking mindset. We have seen two types of Ashwin, the Melbourne spell he bowled was according to me, the best spell by an off-spinner but in South Africa he bowled with an extremely defensive thinking,” External link

Gautam Gambhir said : “I know some people say that we overpaid certain players but in Avesh's case, he's young and can bowl quick. He's someone you can build the Indian bowling with, and build the bowling department for the future. While people only talk about the present, we thought about the future as well.

We want performances for Lucknow,” External link

If Bumrah is rested for the next series which he should be, then Krishna should be used in the West Indies series. And even if they concede a lot of runs, it won’t matter because they need experience. Deepak Chahar should also play. He can be rotated with Thakur,” External link

Obviously, it's a work in progress, but he gives you three things -- he opens the batting, he can keep wickets and he is a phenomenal white-ball batter, his consistency and his run-scoring has been phenomenal when he has played for Punjab and other franchises and what better than having someone who gives you 3 things," External link

Gautam Gambhir said : “Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Ravi Ashwin should be rested for the next match, and changes in the batting order aren't needed. Jayant Yadav should be given a chance along with seamers like Mohammed Siraj and Prasidh Krishna. India need to develop their second-string team and gives chances to bowlers who can bowl above 140 kmph in South Africa,” External link

He has close to 10 million followers on Instagram alone, which is almost ten times more than the population of Gurugram where he now lives. I'd recommend that there is something for everyone on his Insta handle. There are fitness videos, dancing videos with his mother, dubsmash videos and there is also a video where Shikhar is playing the flute with perhaps his Guru," "Trust me, it's an absolute delight, all notes are in proper place just like a perfectly struck left-hander's cover drive with the bat finishing on his right shoulder.

Gautam Gambhir added ( about Ekke Primauno ) : "The marketing guys would like us to believe that Test cricket is alive and kicking. But sadly, despite those powerful scenes, Test cricket the world over is not producing the requisite standards. England are struggling, so are Sri Lanka, Pakistan and West Indies. I am sorry, but beyond a point you cannot live on history or legacy. West Indies WAS a great side, England WAS a top side in patches, Pakistan and Sri Lanka USED to produce fantastic cricket. Sport is played in present, history and nostalgia can only tickle the romance of the whole scene. At present only India, Australia and New Zealand are producing some decent standards. That is why it was surprising to see India go down to an ordinary South African team. I am not too excited about the win in Centurion. If anything, India should have dominated this series.

He is the guy who has played over 100 Tests for the country and has captured in excess of 300 Test wickets. With due respect to Ishant though, I'd be more inclined to play Umesh Yadav. For me, he is a like for like replacement for Siraj. Both have similar attacking style of bowling and are skiddy customers. Let's see if the Indian think tank agrees with me," External link

Gautam Gambhir explained ( about Mohamed Siraj ) : “India missed a fourth seamer. If Mohammed Siraj would have been 100 per cent fit then the captain would have been able to rotate his two key pacers better. And you know that once the ball gets wet, it won't help Ashwin anymore. So literally, you were playing with just three pacers. And when you expect only three pacers to pick the remaining eight wickets, you can't expect any of them to have an off day.

Gautam Gambhir added ( about Virat Kohli ) : "Virat has been fabulous. Honestly, I have not enjoyed a lot of his captaincy, but this time around, he's been very, very good. Probably the reason is because he thinks this is his last time as captain in IPL, (so) he wants to enjoy it more; he's just more relaxed. And he's got the bowlers this time," External link

Gautam Gambhir pointed out : "Purely from the captaincy point of view who can handle the pressure best, probably has to be Dhoni. Rishabh has the advantage from a point of view that he's got a lot of experience in the playing XI. If Steve Smith plays, he's got him alongside. He has got Ravichandran Ashwin who has captained earlier as well... so for me Dhoni is No. 1 at the moment," External link

Gautam Gambhir told : “If you can bat like this, why don’t you bat like this? And if he can bat like this, probably he has got more ability than Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. I am not saying it just because I have seen KL Rahul doing it today; he just has it. He has got more shots than anyone else in India. And he has shown it today,” External link

Gautam Gambhir said ( about Shane Watson ) : "I never thought he was that dangerous a T20 batter. Yes, he had got runs for CSK, but he's never had the impact someone like Shane Watson had. He will score those 50 off 40 balls but he cannot hurt the opposition bowlers. He's not going to be an all-out match-winner. If Shane Watson gets runs, he'll get a 100 off 60 balls. So yeah, Faf has definitely exceeded all the expectations, not only of myself but of a lot of other people as well," External link

Gautam Gambhir said : “Strike rates are very overrated. You can expect Kohli to have a 600-run season but you can’t expect that from Maxwell, and you can never have Maxwell batting at a [strike rate of] 120-125 and expect Kohli to be batting on 160. So both of them are different and it’s a combination of everyone that makes a successful side,” External link

Gautam Gambhir concluded : “You can talk about Kohli, Ab de Villiers, or Maxwell, but the truth is batters only set the team up but bowlers win you matches. Because if the batters would've won the games, RCB would've won IPL 3 or 4 times,” External link

HindustanTimes Wednesday, October 6, 2021 3:36:00 PM EAT

Gautam Gambhir said : “It's not an irrelevant match. This is because it's extremely important for RCB. They will know how crucial it is to finish in the top 2. Primarily for the reason, even if you slip up in qualifier 1, you would still have that one extra opportunity to reach the finals of the competition. Whereas, if any side finishes in third or fourth position, all their two months of hard work can be wasted easily,” External link

Gautam Gambhir added : “Selectors will probably have to answer this whether he’s actually going to bowl four overs in the World Cup and if he decides to do that, does he have those overs under him? If he decides to bowl in the World Cup he has to start bowling from now on, Whether it’s one or two overs per game so that he can deliver during the World Cup where India will be looking to win” External link

Gautam Gambhir said : “The biggest upset in this batting lineup is Hardik Pandya. He hasn’t played any cricket, he is just a one-format player for me now. He only plays white-ball cricket and hasn’t delivered this year and he’s got into the T20 World Cup side when he hasn’t bowled either. So that’s a huge surprise” External link

And there are so many people who are jumping into it, they have got nothing to do with it. Probably to increase some social media followers or to have some presence somewhere so that people can talk about it. It makes no sense. R Ashwin is absolutely correct," External link
