Not Dhoni or Sachin, Gautam Gambhir surprises everyone with ‘best team man’ choice | Cricket News


As Gautam Gambhir returns to Kolkata Knight Riders, expectations arise within the franchise ahead of the 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL) season. It was under Gambhir’s leadership that KKR won their only two IPL titles. With the former Indian opener returning to the role of mentor, the management is expecting the setup to do wonders. Gambhir is the kind of person who always puts the team before personal matters. In a conversation after reaching Kolkata, the 2011 World Cup-winning cricketer named former KKR star Ryan Ten Doeschate as the “greatest team man” he had ever met.

Gambhir has rubbed shoulders with some of the best ‘team men’ in the game. Whether MS Dhoni, Sachin Tendulkar Or Virat Kohli. But it was the former Dutch striker.

“When I talk about selflessness, I have never said that in my 42 years of career, and I wanted to say it. The greatest team man I’ve ever played with, the most selfless human being, someone I can take a bullet for, someone I can trust for life, and I can tell you this because in 2011, I have my first match as captain of KKR.

“We only had four foreign players available, and this man had a fabulous 50-a-side World Cup, and we went into that game with only three foreign players, and he was carrying drinks in that game without any disappointment on his face. He taught me selflessness. Ryan ten Doeschate. These are the people who made me the leader,” Gambhir revealed.

During the event, Gambhir also said, “I didn’t make Kolkata Knight Riders successful, it was KKR that made me a successful leader.”
