A prolific run-scorer at the domestic level, Gautam Gambhir soon made an impact in 2002 by smashing successive double tons in first-class matches. He was soon a contender for the opening slot in the Indian side. His solid footwork, high bat-lift and a boldly young approach perplexed bowlers more than once as vigilant defense was substituted by the aerial route over point.
With his slight build and shy attitude, Gambhir represents a fearless and aggressive style of cricket. His success with the Indian side has not been consistent and he has had a stop-start career. Hence he has still not cemented his place in the team. At the World Twenty20 2007, he was India’s top scorer with 227 runs. That marked the beginning of a successful partnership that was to follow for the next several months.
While batsmen were busy devising ways of getting rid of the aggressive Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir went about quietly scoring runs at the other end. He was called to the side in late 2007 for one Test but then dropped and recalled after a string of consistent scores in domestic cricket and the IPL in mid-2008.
For the next one year, he became one of the most consistent batsmen for India at the top of the order. He even succeeded in tough conditions like New Zealand and Sri Lanka – a venue where most Indian batsmen were baffled by the spin of Mendis and Muralidaran. Regardless to say, he has become a mainstay in the team for all three formats but it has been noticed that his performance levels increase when he is opening alongside his Delhi teammate, Virender Sehwag.
