T20 world has started. India has to play its first match against Pakistan on 23 October. Team India will depend a lot on the performance of Virat Kohli in this World Cup. At the same time, during the show on Star Sports, former Indian batsman Gautam Gambhir, while answering the question related to Virat Kohli, has taunted him in gestures. Gautam Gambhir was asked the question, ‘Which mindset do you want Virat Kohli to go to this World Cup?’
Individual records have no value in big tournaments- Gautam Gambhir
Responding to this, Gautam Gambhir says, ‘Play with the mindset of scoring runs. Apart from this, no other mentality is needed by any batsman. Because what else could be a mindset? The job of a batsman is to score runs. The job of a bowler is to take wickets. And make the runs that your team wins. Runs are not those that just go to your record, or make 50 or 100. You make 40 or 30. Just make that impact so that your team can reach 170/180.
Gautam Gambhir further says, ‘If you are batting during the runchase, then score runs in that manner so that the pressure is removed from the lower middle order. I believe when you go to such a big tournament. So personal records should be kept at home. If you are going to Australia then India should go packed because individual records have no value in this tournament.
Gautam Gambhir said, ‘Winning the World Cup has value. If the team wins, it is your legacy. If you score 500 runs and don’t qualify, then it comes only in your record, when the whole team gets the rest of the criticism, then you also get it.
