Yes Guys It was his Birthday on 14th October and a day of immense happiness and joy for all Cricket fans as it was the day when Gautam Gambhir returned back to the field for national side after some unfortunate injuries and that too In Form. We all have been waiting for this day to come and It has finally come, The month started with a whopping 33 runs from the vice-captain and still managed to be among the top-scorers of the match.
This doesn’t end here – He came back in the Second One Day International against England in India and guess what – Our Knight did exactly what was expected out of him – He scored 84 and that too Not Out, I mean I can’t wait to see more from him. England – He is one guy, you need to watch out for – You did win from India on your Home Land just because this soldier was injured but now the chances are very sleek. And the partnership between the Delhi lads was one another thing to watch out for – Thank God, we have someone like Kohli who can give that almost same kind of company to the KKR skipper in the field as Sehwag does.
George Binoy, ESPN Cricinfo :-
Finn clocked speeds of 150 kph and above consistently in his first spell. He beat Kohli with sheer pace after inducing an edge that went past slip for four. In the 10th over, Gambhir edged Finn past his stumps to the fine-leg boundary while attempting a cover drive. With three slips in place there was a huge gap between cover point and mid-off and Gambhir was aiming for it. He tried to steer once again, and Finn watched the outside edge fly wide of third slip once more. There was a third boundary in the over – Gambhir clipped a half-volley off his pads through square leg. Finn’s frustration began to show and India began to pull away fast.
The other England bowlers caused no problems. Kohli pulled Jade Dernbach with a trace of arrogant dismissiveness, he drove Ravi Bopara with grace through cover, and Gambhir cut Graeme Swann behind point to bring up the 50-partnership off 42 balls.
Kohli reached his half-century off 45 balls, Gambhir got to his off 62. Both batsmen were level on 58 after 25 overs but thereafter Kohli began to race ahead with frequent boundaries and a constant turning over of the strike. He got to his century off only 89 balls with a deft glance off the pads against Jade Dernbach. He celebrated his seventh ODI hundred with a fist-pump. A few overs later, Kohli was fist-pumping again, after smashing Dernbach through midwicket to finish the game.
Not only this, Gambhir has shown his talent after the injury in the post matches of Champions League in which Gambhir did score 55* and 33* which made us win both the matches by a good margin.
But The Performance doesn’t end here he did brought India Red into the finals of NKP Salve Challenger Trophy as well in List A Cricket which shows he is versatile and talented and that too as a captain.
Now another Good News is that Our favorite Player is going to marry this month or next. I am so excited and happy for his personal life, He deserves the best. I am very happy that He is marrying Delhi based Natasha Jain who is 27 years old and is daughter of a prominent business person Ravindra Jain. Due to which He won’t play in the only T20 match against England . Marriages are said to be made in heaven – I just hope that this marriage lasts longer and stays prosperous till the end. May she bring him joy for the rest of life. And I hope to have his kid in a year or so. Seriously How cute his son would be Awww Hehe :-p
