Gautam Gambhir, most likely out of the Caribbean tour due to shoulder injury
The newly appointed Indian captain, Gautam Gambhir is going to miss the Indian team bus to the Caribbean in all probability. KKR might be in serious trouble after they kept mum about the injury and..
FOUR MONTHS of non-stop cricket action in the form of ICC World Cup and IPL 2011 has taken a toll on Gautam Gambhir's ailing body. In spite of being declared unfit by pshyio Andrei Leipus, he played the eliminator match against Mumbai Indians aggravating his shoulder injury. He had been advised rest for a period of 4-6 weeks.
The club v/s country debate has come to the forefront in the IPL once again after the likes of Dwayne Bravo and Chris Gayle grabbed the headlines for the same reason. Things do not look good for the Delhi southpaw, who played a pivotal role during the world cup. He may have to sit out for the tour of Caribbean, where he was handed over the captaincy after some seniors decided to take rest.
The Shahrukh khan owned team may have some difficult questions left to answer. The BCCI does not seem to be in a forgiving mood. But it's still uncertain if Kolkata Knight Riders are guilty for forcing the player to play. If some news sources are to be believed, serious action might be taken against KKR, for risking Gambhir’s injury.
If Gambhir fails to make it to the Caribbean, there are no serious contenders for handling the Indian captaincy. It might be a tricky affair to pick a captain of a team who clearly lacks experience. Will the BCCI go for an experienced player like Yuvraj or an emerging player like Raina or Kohli?
Irrespective of whoever dons the captain's hat, he has a tough task in hand to replicate what Dhoni has been doing so well. The new captain has to lead a side lacking experience.
