New Delhi: Everyone knew that Gautam Gambhir is a solid batsman, but just after two years as skipper of the Kolkata Knight Riders, people are beginning to notice his strengths as a captain. And while he may not be 'Captain Cool' like Dhoni or 'Captain Aggressive' like Ganguly, Gauti's success mantra is to be a leader and not a skipper.
Another reason why Gambhir is being tagged as a good captain is because he has been consistently leading by example. This season, he finished second behind only Chris Gayle in the leading run-getters list.
Gambhir is a man who wears his heart on his sleeve and has turned around the fortunes of KKR within two seasons. He might come across as a man with a quick temper, but make no mistake about it, inside that hot head ticks a shrewd cricketing brain.
