Mumbai: Veteran India batsman Rahul Dravid on Friday hailed the appointment of Gautam Gambhir as the skipper for the T20 and ODI teams for the series against the West Indies beginning next month.
Gambhir was on Friday chosen to lead the side in the absence of regular skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who has been rested along with batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar and pace spearhead Zaheer Khan.
"Gambhir has done it before against New Zealand where we won handsomely. He is a good captain. There is no reason why he can't do it again," Dravid said on the sidelines of an event here.
