Gautam Gambhir, we’re running out of words as we think of the Indian team after Gambhir announced his retirement from all forms of cricket last night. Gautam has played about 242 matches so far, scoring a splendid 10324 runs. He would be playing his last match now on 6th December in Delhi in the ongoing Ranji Trophy against Andhra Pradesh at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium.
Gautam got very emotional when he announced his retirement on Twitter with a short video of his journey
On this, a lot of people including SRK, Sachin Tendulkar, Suresh Raina have replied wishing him good luck and also praising him for his incomparable contribution
And we don’t even disagree. His journey has been exceptionally incredible. Right from his 114 runs against Sri Lanka in the 1st Test series tour in 2009 to the most renowned 97 runs against Sri Lanka during the finale of 2011 World Cup, Gautam’s performance has been outstanding
Gauti is also famous for breaking quite a few bats, after which the team has won almost all the times. The most remembered one being at the match when he was playing for KKR in IPL against Mumbai Indians
In his video, he speaks of the things he will miss after his retirement. “The thing that I will miss the most is the camaraderie of an Indian team's dressing room. It was a wonderful place to be in. Yes, there are pressures of international sport but then when you have teammates like I had these pressures look elementary. I learned heaps from each one of them. I will miss all of that and more. Thank you guys, you all will be my one, big family,” he said
