Gautam Gambhir reluctant to play West Indies tour: Sources

first_imgThe Indian skipper for the forthcoming ODI series against West Indies, Gautam Gambhir, is reluctant to play the tour. The designated captain for the Caribbean is apparently worried about aggravating the injury to his shoulder, senior sources in the BCCI have told Headlines Today. Gambhir has told the BCCI that he is worried about a four-month injury lay off if he goes to the West Indies, which would mean missing the crucial series in England.  The BCCI is now awaiting the results of the physio report before they make a decision on Gambhir’s availability for the tour. They have confirmed that if Gautam is found to be unfit, he will not be sent to the Carribean. India’s cricketing body is unhappy that Gambhir continued playing for Kolkata Knight Riders as the skipper in the fourth season of the Indian Premier League despite the injury to his shoulder. Gambhir has not been sure of the extent of his shoulder injury as he was yet to know the result of MRI scan done on Tuesday evening. Club vs country Gambhir’s decision to play for Kolkata Knight Riders and risk his Team India role, has stoked the club versus country debate. Former chief selector Kiran More feels the BCCI needs to set its house in order. “Why blame cricketers? The BCCI needs to a take a big call over the issue. It must look into rules and regulations,” More told Headlines Today. South African cricketer Herschelle Gibbs said as a professional cricketer ‘needs to know the extent of his injury’. “It is an important duty of a cricketer,” Gibbs said, adding country should come before the club, as there is ‘prestige’ involved. While cricket analyst Charu Sharma believed ‘avenues and options’ may force a cricketer to prefer clubs to the national call, senior cricket journalist Gulu Ezekiel said, “The BCCI has opened a Pandora’s box. You have players who will play the ILP but not the international matches.” The BCCI has created a situation, where ‘the rest of the world has to deliver’ and not Indian players, because the IPL happens in India, Ezekiel added.advertisementlast_img read more
