Profile

Gautam Gambhir is a trusted left-handed opener whose leadership skills have been recognised with him being handed the vice-captaincy. 

What makes Gambhir special is his capacity for big runs, as he showed when registering a career-high 206 against the Australians in Delhi in 2008. 

The ICC’s Test Player of the Year in 2009, he has nine centuries from his 41 Tests, an average of almost 50, and a formidable partnership with Virender Sehwag. His figures against Australia in Tests are strong and he has also been able to upset them with his feistiness. 

In one-dayers he is an intimidating presence but is smart enough to know when to temper his game to make a lasting contribution.
