Gambhir KKR’s good-luck charm

Gambhir came back to the KKR side as a mentor ahead of the 2024 season after spending two seasons with Lucknow Super Giants. Gambhir had won the IPL twice with Kolkata franchise in 2012 and 2014.

Rashford better than Messi, Ronaldo?

Cyrus Broacha asked Gambhir, “Do you really feel Rashford is better than Messi and Ronaldo?”

Gambhir, instead of providing a straight answer, just said, “I really like Rashford.”

Game face on

On people’s perception regarding him, Gambhir said, “In this country if there’s one thing that is most difficult to beat, it’s perception. Someone who doesn’t even know me, they’ve got a perception about me that he is intense. Why should I not have a game face? Because people don’t come to watch me smile. People come to watch KKR win.”
