It's not been an easy last few months for Gautam Gambhir. Till some time ago, his position at the top of the Indian batting order in all formats appeared secure and he seemed next in line to take over as India captain. Right now, he isn't even part of the Indian team and is in charge of a team that has struggled consistently in the sixth edition of the Pepsi Indian Premier League. Wisden India caught up with Gambhir to discuss his captaincy, his attitude on the field and his future. Excerpts:
First dropped from the Test team, then out of the one-day team too for the Champions Trophy. Where do you think your international career stands at the moment?
It is standing right there, challenging me. I am ready for it. At the moment, my focus is only on making a comeback into the Indian team in ODIs and Tests. I am not thinking too far beyond that.
