Watch: Gautam Gambhir Picks The Best Captain He Played Under
Kolkata Knight Riders captain Gautam Gambhir is arguably one of the greatest openers in Indian Cricket as he made a name for himself despite playing alongside the likes of Virender Sehwag, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman.
The elegant left handed batsman was one of the best players India have seen in the 21st century and he had the courtesy to play under some great captains India ever had. He had played under the likes of Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, Anil Kumble and MS Dhoni during his illustrious career.
Having playing some much cricket for India, he had also captained the team in limited overs cricket. The 32-year old has further illustrated his leadership skills in Indian Premier League as he successfully helped Kolkata Knight Riders to two IPL victories.
He has made KKR one of the most consistent teams in the league and is leading the side well in the current campaign as well as they are on course for yet another playoff position.
The team have only lost two games so far this year in IPL and raked up 10 points in just 7 games. The most magical moment of the league came when Gambhir led side restricted star-studded RCB batting lineup to a paltry 49- which is the lowest total ever in IPL history.
Having had the privilege to play under such wonderful captains in the past, Gambhir was asked to pick the best captain he played under.
The Delhi player have selected MS Dhoni as the best captain he played under in his illustrious career as he along with Sehwag have put in many memorable performances for the nation towards the end of 2000s and early 2010s.
The 32-year old had enjoyed his best spell as a batsman under MS Dhoni as his key contributions at the top of the order helped India achieve No.1 spot in Test Cricket in 2009. He has also played memorable innings in 2007 T20 World Cup and 2011 World Cup finals to hand the nation two massive trophies.
