Ready to bat at No 3, says Gambhir

Ready to bat at No 3, says Gambhir

Kolkata Knight Riders captain Gautam Gambhir said he would bat at No 3 position if required.

Gambhir, who opened the innings with Brendon McCullum in their win against Kings XI Punjab said the interest of the team comes first. “KKR is not just my team it is all about 23 players.

What I think is the best eleven and the best batting order on the day, I implemented that.

In the first two matches I thought I needed to go and bat at number three and after that there was a need to open the innings. I will again go back to number three if needed.

There is no place for individuals in the KKR team and it is all about winning,” Gambhir said.

Gambhir also backed under-fire all rounder Yusuf Pathan. “Its just six matches now, there are ten more left. I think Yusuf only needs one match to turn things around. I have full faith in him.”

The cramped IPL schedule does not bother Gambhir. “I am not alone who has this hectic schedule, in fact most professions people have hectic schedules,” the KKR skipper said.
