The KKR bowling coach said Gambhir is in tremendous form and he is keeping the team together like a family.

"He is one of the best captains in Champions League because his psyche is to get wickets. In Twenty20 the only way you can stop runs is to get wickets. That is why if you notice after six overs, after eight runs instead of bowling part time bowlers and instead of bowling dot balls, he tries to get wickets and that is the key to his success," said Akram.
