Former Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Gautam Gambhir has heaped massive praise on Rohit.

The Lucknow based new IPL team unveiled its name today – the Lucknow Super Giants. Gautam Gambhir is the mentor of the franchise.

Gambhir is a two-time World Champion. The veteran also led Kolkata Knight Riders to two IPL titles.

In his conversation with Boria Majumdar on ‘Backstage with Boria’, Gautam spoke about his philosophy.

“When I led in IPL, I wanted players who were willing to play for franchise, not India. Playing for the country is just the byproduct,” said Gambhir.

“I will follow the same thinking with Lucknow franchise. If you want to play for the new team, thinking that it gives you a platform to represent India, then you are being dishonest to the franchise. But If you want to play for Lucknow and deliver it for them, eventually you will end up playing for India,” he added.
