Cricket, they say, is a religion in India and cricketers are gods. But even these deities have to look for an alternate career once they are done hurling thunderbolts at batsmen or bludgeoning bowlers to submission.
Gambhir’s has been an eventful career, which fetched him 4,154 runs in 58 Tests, 5,238 in 147 ODIs and 932 in 37 T20 Internationals. His grand aggregate of 22,484 runs—10,324-plus runs in List ‘A’ matches—makes him the second Indian behind Sachin Tendulkar (24,452).
