It has been ages since Gautam Gambhir picked up a cricket bat. He has been trying his hand at commentary after he bid adieu to the game and has become an accomplished broadcaster and is never one who feels shy of expressing his opinions. He is quiet a favourite on television and social media for his opinions and comments which sparks a widespread debate often.
For now, though, it is time for Gautam Gambhir to get back to his old avatar of being a cricketer as he prepares to come back and lead his side the India Capitals in the Legends League Cricket tournament. In the first game that the India Capitals played, Jaques Kallis was leading the side in his absence.
Gambhir, who missed the team’s first match against the Gujarat Giants on Saturday, September 17th, is expected to lead the Indian Capitals in their upcoming contest. The left-handed opening batter shared an Instagram story on Tuesday, September 20th, to give fans a sneak peek into his practice session ahead of the match against the Bhilwara Kings.
India Capitals will square off against the Bhilwara Kings in the fourth match of the Legends League Cricket 2022 on Wednesday, September 21st, in Lucknow. The two sides have started out on a different note. While the India Capitals had a three-wicket defeat to Gujarat Giants in their first game, the Bhilwara Kings won against the Manipal Tigers by three wickets.
Gautam Gambhir was away due to broadcasting duties and could not lead the side in the previous game, but now Gambhir will be at the helm and lead the side against the Bhilwara Kings in this encounter. Fans of Gautam Gambhir will be in a tizzy as he makes a appearance back to competitive cricket after a long gap.
The capitals will be aiming to come on the right side of the encounter against the Bhilwara Kings.
