Gautam Gambhir speaks on India’s chances of winning the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015
Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir said that he has full confidence in the young bloods of Indian cricket team under Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s captaincy for the International Cricket Council World Cup 2015, which is starting on 14th February in Australia and New Zealand.
When Hindustan Times asked about playing the International Cricket Council World Cup 2015 in different conditions will be a challenge or not, Gambhir replied that he does not think so. He thinks except when someone is playing in New Zealand or England where the ball swings and seams, everywhere else Indian cricketers feel at ease. Even during the Test series they have seen the pitches were very flat. So he is hoping nothing different during the World Cup. Besides, conditions become immaterial beyond a point in a huge cricket championship like the ICC World Cup.
The 33 years old said that he has left behind the sadness of not being given an opportunity to defend India’s International Cricket Council World Cup title, which they won at home soil in 2011. He was quoted saying: “Although I am not too much of a past person but World Cup win is special. Any performing art or sport is about leaving a legacy for generations to come and I guess our team that played in 2011 did that. Yes, one does feel disappointed but it is not the end of the world. I still have bat in my hand. I’ve just turned 33 which is an age at which batsmen mature to play their best. So, picture abhi baaki hai…”
Gautam Gambhir said that even though the squad under Mahendra Singh Dhoni is very new and less experienced, the team have it in them to not get suppressed in circumstances and concentrate on the work.
He said that the squad is having less international experience but the spirit, energy of these youngsters has been tested in difficult circumstances in the months leading into the World Cup.
