IND vs ENG | Good decision from team management to rest Jasprit Bumrah, reckons Gautam Gambhir 
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir has taken a liking to India's decision to rest pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah for the second Test that started today in Chennai. He also added that India would love to have Bumrah for the pink-ball Test and also the last game, so it was much needed. India have played a lot of cricket since the 2020 IPL. Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has been in bio-bubble since August 2020 and only once he got a five-six day break in between after the Australia tour since then which is gruelling. Meanwhile, he has played the whole of IPL, three ODIs, one warm-up game, four Tests since that time which is quite a bit be it physically or mentally. In fact, in the last Test, he bowled the most he had in any Test innings in the first innings that too in Chennai's heat.Given, India will play a lengthy limited-overs series against England after the four-match Test series and then the IPL before the away England tour, it was very important to rest and rotate Bumrah, which India duly did today. They rested him from the side with Mohammed Siraj taking his place in the second Test after Virat Kohli stated at the toss that the pace spearhead has been rested keeping in mind his workload. Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir, who had earlier asked for managing Bumrah well, was happy with India's decision to rest the fast bower and termed it a good one by team management. "I think it is a good decision to rest him. He will be ready to go in the pink ball Test match. There is nothing for the fast bowlers here and he has bowled a lot of overs in Australia and the first Test match, so I think it was a very good decision from the team management's point of view," Gambhir said on Star Sports' show Cricket Live, reported HT. The World Cup and IPL winner also suggested that India will need Bumrah for the pink-ball Test or the more crucial games coming forward. "You would want to have Jasprit Bumrah for the crucial Test matches, the pink ball one and the fourth Test and there will be hardly any gap between the two. So, I think it is the right decision." After the culmination of the ongoing four-match Test series, India will play five T20Is and three ODIs against the Three Lions. Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IND vs ENG | Rishabh Pant is very instinctive; would never want him to change, opines Gautam Gambhir
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Gautam Gambhir has opined that Rishabh Pant’s instinctive nature is what makes him who he is and also opined that he never wants Pant to change his batting approach. He also insisted the management not to change his batting approach by developing defence in his arsenal of batting.Live by the sword, die by the sword - a true proverb that surrounds the young Rishabh Pant’s batting style for the Indian team in the longest format. Ever since his return in Melbourne, the left-hander has been involved in two of India’s most memorable Tests - in Sydney and Brisbane, where he scored influential 90s. However, in the ongoing Test in Chennai, the left-hander fell right in the same mark, which prompted a lot of critics to talk about his shot selection. Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir, however, was having none of that, opining that Pant is very instinctive in nature and should continue to bat the same way. He also added that putting thoughts of defending more would only make him doubt his skills."He would start thinking about his shot selection. But he's very instinctive and you like players who are very instinctive. Sometimes you have to take that with a rub of salt as well, when you say why do you have to go and do that (hit a shot) when you are in the 90s. It's a given 100, it's on a platter,” Gambhir said on ESPNCricinfo."I would never want Rishabh Pant to change. Because the more you put things in his mind, he would start defending more," he added.However, Gambhir also expressed that Pant could keep improving on his shot selection, which would only make him better. He didn’t want the left-hander to develop a defense, which will take away his natural game. "Don't tell him to develop a defense or a better technique or become more technically sound. Because the more you become technically sound, you start thinking about what ball to hit, what not to hit, and it starts playing with your instincts. I want Pant to be an instinctive player for as long as he plays," Gambhir signed off.Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IND vs ENG | Gill will learn with time, needs to be encouraged to play attacking cricket, claims Gautam Gambhir
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Gautam Gambhir defended Shubman Gill after the youngster was dismissed playing a rash shot on Day 3, and claimed that the 21-year-old will learn and mature as he plays more matches. Gambhir reckoned Gill looked ‘unbelievable’ in his short stay and hoped for the management to back the youngster.The Indian openers walked out to bat after spending 190 long overs on the field but any apprehensions about mental fatigue were instantaneously squashed by young Shubman Gill. On just the seventh ball he faced, the right-hander played a thumping pull off the bowling of Jofra Archer and by the time he faced his 20th ball, he’d already struck four boundaries. Gill looked a class above the rest and further asserted his dominance on the very first ball of the 10th over, dispatching an overpitched Archer delivery via a wristy flick.However, against the run of play, tragedy struck the very next ball as Gill perished attempting an extravagant straight drive. The bowler, Archer, pitched the ball up once again and Gill, aiming to drive, ended up scooping the ball straight to Jimmy Anderson at mid-on. The youngster has since come under criticism for his impatience and shot selection, but one person who believes Gill should not be chastised is Gautam Gambhir. Reviewing the morning session on ESPN Cricinfo, Gambhir spoke highly of Gill’s short stay at the middle and felt the 21-year-old was unlucky to get out the way he did. Gambhir reckoned Gill will learn and mature with time and said that, given the form he was in, the right-hander’s dismissal was ‘understandable’.“I think he looked unbelievable. When you’re playing that kind of an innings, you just want to continue doing that - because you’re in that kind of a rhythm as well. When you’re on a run-ball 27 or 28, hitting Jofra Archer through mid-wicket and your confidence is sky-high after a successful tour of Australia, it’s difficult to stop,” Gambhir said on ESPN Cricinfo.“You’ve got to give it to the young boy. He’s only going to learn with experience. What we saw from Shubman Gill - the entire country should be excited about it. He’s only going to learn with time. You can’t expect someone playing their 3rd or 4th Test match to not play that shot.”Gill finished his innings with a strike rate of 103.57 and in his young career has shown that he is someone who loves to take the attack to the position. On the back of his dismissal today, there have been calls for the youngster to tone down his aggression but Gambhir is against that idea. The former Indian opener feels Gill needs to be encouraged to play with aggression and believes such an approach will help the right-hander rack up tons of runs in international cricket.“Yes, he played a touch little early but then again very good catch. I would not think too much about it. I would still want Shubman Gill to play the way he did. Ultimately if he keeps playing this way, he is going to get many more runs. So nothing to think about.”Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IND vs ENG | India should preserve Bumrah for the pink-ball Test, reckons Gautam Gambhir
By admin | | 0 Comments |


After his display in the first Test, Gautam Gambhir has reckoned that India should rest Jasprit Bumrah for the second Test in an attempt to preserve him for the pink-ball clash in Ahmedabad. He also insisted that Bumrah can’t be bowling long sessions as he did in Chennai, which would wear him down.Jasprit Bumrah in the last few years has emerged as India’s ace bowler across formats, both at home and away from home. So much so that he has gone on to play almost all of India’s games in the last year, across formats, making his workload one of the talking points for the Indian management. During the ongoing Test against England, the right-arm pacer has already bowled 36 overs in the first innings, which has prompted a huge debate. Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir has reckoned that India should preserve Jasprit Bumrah for the pink-ball Test. He also added that the management should consider resting Bumrah for the second Test in Chennai, with the conditions unfriendly to the pacers. "100 percent, absolutely. I'm not even sure whether Bumrah should be picked for the second Test match. I think India should preserve him for the pink-ball Test match. See, Jasprit Bumrah is a X-Factor in the series, irrespective of what surfaces to play on and you've got to keep that in mind too," Gambhir said on ESPNCricinfo, reported HT.Gambhir also insisted that Virat Kohli should consider giving the pacer short burst of spells, instead of handing him a long duty with the ball. Since his debut, Bumrah has bowled the most of overs in an innings of a Test, against England. While he was also the most successful of Indian bowlers, his workload, according to Gambhir could be the difference between a win and a loss. "Jasprit Bumrah you can't just keep bowling for longer sessions. Give him that short burst of three overs to try and pick a quick wicket, but not long spells because Bumrah is going to be very important going forward in the series. And if something happens to him, India is going to be in serious trouble," the former batsman added.Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .
