Gautam Gambhir Profile | Gautam Gambhir Biography
(This Gautam Gambhir Profile was written on Apr 30, 2014)
Gautam Gambhir is one of the few reliable opening batsmen in Indian cricket history. This short stature left-hander (Gautam Gambhir’s height is only 5ft 8 inch) is a stylish batsman who can play either aggressively or go on to bat for hours and hours patiently as he showed in New Zealand to save a Test match for India at Napier in 2009. Gambhir along with Virender Sehwag became the country’s best ever opening pair.
This southpaw plays for Delhi and has captained the Kolkata Knight Riders to two IPL titles. Despite losing his place in the Indian team, he still maintains a solid batting average in Tests. And he still has a few years to go as an international cricket although it is difficult for him to get back into the playing XI. For the record, Gambhir made his domestic debut for Delhi in 1999/00 while his international debut came in 2004.
Gambhir is tremendous against spinners while he has a tendency to fish outside off to the pacers. In top form as in 2008 and 2009, Gautam Gambhir showed that he was a world beater when he bagged the ICC Test Cricketer of the year award. In 2008, Gautam Gambhir was honoured by his country with the Arjuna Award.
On the personal front, Gautam Gambhir is married to Natasha Jain. Gautam Gambhir who is nicknamed as Gauti comes from a well-off family with his father Deepak running a textile business.
