The Indian mainstay in T-20 World Cup 2007 and World Cup 2011, Gautam Gambhir makes a huge comment on Quinton De Kock just before the start of the Paytm T-20 Series between India and South Africa at Dharamsala.
Gautam Gambhir made a bold statement on De Kock stating that he reminds him of the great Sri Lankan legend Kumar Sangakkara due to his flow of batting. He also claimed that it was his dream to become such an elegant left-hander but eventually, he wasn’t to be in his career.
Quinton De Kock has been appointed as the captain of this new-look South African side and he will up and running to take up this challenge. With Gambhir’s statement on him will boost his confidence though it will be interesting to watch how he handles the pressure of captaincy.
Gambhir also expects a run-fest this time around in Dharamsala and it is an excellent opportunity for the youngsters in both the camps to present their case for the World T-20 in Australia next year.
Dharamsala being on higher altitude, the ball flies here at a much quicker rate and as Gambhir said we could witness a high scoring thriller. Only if the rain gods allows to do so as it has been raining past two days and the weather report doesn’t seem good though.
The race for the number 4 spot in this strong Indian batting line up has been fired up with Shreyas Iyer performing really well in the West Indies ODIs. Whether the Number 4 will be Manish Pandey or Shreyas Iyer it will be cleared up in the first game of the T-20 Series.
Before summing up the insider Gautam Gambhir exited by saying that this series would be more important for Rishabh Pant. Rishabh Pant has to perform to his potential in this series otherwise he might lose his place in the Indian Cricket Team.
For everyone’s information, two more wicketkeepers are in the sight namely Sanju Samson and Ishan Kishan who could replace him in this Indian Lineup. And above all MS Dhoni has not still announced his retirement and could be in line too.
