Gambhir said that captaincy is an honour and a privilege, and that no one would turn it down

Gautam Gambhir has been in the news recently after he slammed the media for overhyping MS Dhoni for his contribution to the 2011 World Cup. Gambhir is known for his fearless attitude, unminced words and used to carry the same on the pitch during his playing years.

Gambhir has played several crucial knocks for India and was the star player for the Men in Blue during the 2007 T20 World Cup triumph and 2011 World Cup win. Further, the 41-year-old has led KKR to two IPL titles.

The former India opener has opened up on one embarrassing moment of his playing career where he left ashamed of himself. Gambhir recalled one incident from the 2014 IPL, where he scored three consecutive ducks and had asked Manish Pandey to open the innings in the fourth game.

“I recall experiencing pressure back in 2014 when I was the captain of Kolkata Knight Riders and got three ducks in a row. I decided to send Manish Pandey to open the innings in the fourth match and batted at No. 3 myself. This was because I was scared at the time. I am not afraid to admit that I was ashamed of myself back then.”

” Manish was out without scoring, and I got out for 1. I told Manish I would never again do this and decided to take things head-on.”
