Gautam Gambhir about Rohit Sharma
“He (Rohit) has got to wait for his opportunity. There is Rahane, who has done well now and Vihari too. So he has to wait and when gets that opportunity, he needs to perform,” Gambhir told PTI.
“I am not at all surprised (with Rahane’s performance), but it was a much-needed performance, both from individual and team’s point of view. And when it comes in a winning cause, it doesn’t get better than that,” said Gambhir, who played 58 Tests and 147 ODIs for India.
Gambhir feels Saha too has to wait for his opportunity.
“When someone (Pant) is averaging 48 (45.43 actually) with the bat and scored a hundred each in England and Australia, he deserves to be playing Test cricket. Saha needs to wait for his opportunity as Pant has grabbed his opportunity with both hands,” Gambhir added.
Team India is looking in control in the second test, and they will win the test. After the ongoing test series, India will play against South Africa at Home. South Africa will tour India for three T20Is and three Test this month.
