Sydney: Former India captain Sourav Ganguly feels that the "intent" to succeed has been missing in Gautam Gambhir's game and another failure in the second innings here would only mean that "voices calling for his axing will get louder."
"Gautam Gambhir again struggled and if he does not get runs in the second innings, the voices calling for his axing will get louder. In Australia it's important to stay positive and bat with intent. That has been missing. He is a good player who just needs to get his head right," Ganguly wrote in his column in 'Sydney Morning Herald'.
"He (Gambhir) is a fighter to the core, a bit like a boxer in a ring, and he needs to get into that mindset to bat as if his life depended on it, put his body on the line and he will be amazed how things turn around," Ganguly said.
