Gautam Gambhir reveals his only regret at KKR

KKR mentor Gautam Gambhir has spoken about his only regret during his captaincy of the franchise. Gambhir, who led the KKR team to 2 IPL trophies in 2012 and 2014 said that his only regret in his time at KKR is that he was not able to bring the best out of Suryakumar Yadav.

Suryakumar was KKR’s designated finisher between 2014-2017. Suryakumar showed glimpses of brilliance and many argued that the batter should be brought up the batting order.

Because of the packed batting line-up, Suryakumar was unable to get that chance and asked to be released by the franchise. Suryakumar joined MI in 2018 and became one of the best batters in the IPL.

“A leader’s role is to identify the best potential and show it to the world. If there is one regret I have in my seven years of captaincy is that me and as a team never managed to use Suryakumar Yadav to the best of his potential,” Gambhir told Sportskeeda in an interview.

“And the reason was down to combinations. You can only play one player at No. 3. And as a leader, you have to think about the other 10 players in the XI as well. He would have been way more effective at No. 3, but was equally good at No. 7,” he added.

Suryakumar Yadav made his India debut after playing for Mumbai Indians. The batter rose rapidly in the cricketing world and conquered the Number 1 spot in the ICC’s list of top T20I batters.

Suryakumar captained the Indian team in 2023 and did surprisingly well. The Indian team will have high hopes for Surya in the T20 World Cup 2024. India has selected an experienced squad and is one of the favourites to lift the T20 World Cup title.
