Healthy voices in the excavated state are crucial: Gautam Gambhir
NEW DELHI: Former Indian Opener Gautam Gambhir Believes That Healthy Advice And Good Coaching And Mentor Guidance Play A Decisive Role In Batsman Formation.
In His Times Of India Column, The Captain Of The Former Kolkata Knight Riders Wrote:" I Just Watched A Video Of David Warner And Steve Smith Returning To Australia." From The Variety To Colors That They Get During The IPL , It Was Refreshing To See Them In The Aussie Green And Gold. In The Clip, Which Is About Three Minutes Long, I Was Trying To Ascertain The Confidence Quotient Of Both These Guys. I Can Tell You, Sitting Miles Away, That There Were Nerves At The Allan Border Field In Brisbane."
Gambhir Acknowledged The Role Of The Mentors Of The Four Teams That Have Reached The IPL Playoffs This Year.
“I Had The Honor Of Spending Some Time With Justin Langer, The Current Australian Coach. He Helped Me Fix A Few Things In My Batting. Be Even More Productive From Here On. This Is What A Good Voice In Your Ear Can Do In The Context Of The IPL, All Four Qualifying Teams Have At Least One Sane Voice In Their Dressing Rooms. For Chennai, Ricky Ponting And Sourav Ganguly For Delhi And, Of Course, VVS Laxman For Hyderabad All Fit That Role," Gambhir Added.
Gambhir Gave The Example Of Virat Kohli Who Burst Onto The International Stage And Later Developed Into A World-class Batsman With The Help Of Gary Kirsten And Sachin Tendulkar .
"From a distance, I can work out how a young Suryakumar Yadav is developing assurance in his game. He is an ex-KKR player And I can say with some confidence that Jayawardene would have a role to play there. Same goes for a Kedar Jadhav or a Deepak Chahar And the role of Stephen Fleming in the Chennai dressing room. Not all these impacts can immediately translate into a good-looking scoreboard or a batting/bowling honours board. It is a process which can sometimes take a season or two. A classic example is Virat Kohli. When he first burst on to the scene, no one knew he would be a world-beating batsman. But then things happened for him too. I think the presence of Gary Kirsten And Sachin Tendulkar turned things around for Virat. From a team point of view, I think both Jayawardene And Fleming have been carefully joining the dots," Gambhir concluded .
