NEW DELHI: Besides the fact that Gautam Gambhir is a terrific batsman, one other thing you can’t deny about the Delhi player is that his passion towards the game is second to none. He is known to wear his heart on his shoulders and one can only imagine how much he would have missed being a part of the Indian team for the two years.

Gambhir finds himself in the Indian squad for the 2nd Test in Kolkata at Eden Gardens and there is absolutely no one who thinks he didn’t deserve the comeback. The 34-year-old Delhi batsman, who played his last Test in August 2014 on India’s tour to England, was impressive in the recent Duleep Trophy, where he scored four back-to-back half-centuries including two 90 plus scores.

Taking to twitter, Gambhir didn’t hold back his emotions after the news broke and announced to the world he is ready to take flight once again wearing the Indian cap and is loaded with ambitions.

In five Test matches that Gambhir has played in Eden Gardens, Kolkata the left-hand batsman has scored 253 runs at an average of 31.62. Gambhir on Tuesday returned to India’s Test squad after two years in place of injured KL Rahul for the last two matches of the Test series against New Zealand.

Rahul was ruled out of the remainder of the Test series due to a right hamstring injury that he sustained during the first Test in Kanpur, while running between the wickets.
“BCCI medical team has confirmed that team India opener, KL Rahul has an injury in his right hamstring and he is ruled out for the remainder of the Paytm Test series against New Zealand,” BCCI Secretary Ajay Shirke said in a release.

 “The All-India Senior Selection Committee has named Gautam Gambhir as Rahul’s replacement for the next two Test matches,” he added.
