Gambhir: India's Second Wall

Labels: , , , , ,

Sehwag feels so, and probably the experts of the game do the same. But I don't agree. We all know that Gambhir played a wonderful innings of about 11 hours in Napier, but I feel that it is too early to give him the status of the second wall. Rahul Dravid has played several match-winning knocks and match-saving knocks, and that is why he is called the 'Wall'. But on the other hand, Gambhir has played only one or two such knocks(97 against England and 137 against NewZealand), so how can you call him the second wall?
I also made comparison between Dravid and Gambhir and found that Dravid features twice in the longest innings by an Indian chart, while Gambhir is at a lower position in comparison to Dravid.
Maybe Gambhir will prove me wrong, and stick to his status of the 'Wall'. But for that he needs more such opportunities, which this current Indian team is unwilling to give.

After reading this perhaps you would agree with me, till then let's wish Gambhir luck for the Indian Premier League 2.

He is developing into an excellent test cricketer. Top site by the way. Really enjoy reading it. Would you be able to email me when you get the chance?

Thanks a lot,
