Gautam Gambhir tested COVID-19 Positive
The outspoker cricketer took to his official Twitter handle and shared a post that read,”After experiencing mild symptoms, I tested positive for Covid today. Requesting everyone who came into my contact to get themselves tested,” cricketer-turned-politician tweeted.
Earlier, Gautam Gambhir, the mentor of Lucknow Super Giants had also talked about their strategy of announcing KL Rahul as their skipper and picking Marcus Stoinis as well as Ravi Bishnoi as their top retained players.
The former Indian player had said that it is a no-brainer to have a talented and intelligent player like KL Rahul in the side. As per him, he is a captaincy material, who did really well for Punjab Kings in the previous seasons.
“It’s a no brainer when it comes to KL Rahul. He is not only a batter but obviously a leader as well. It is a work in progress but he gives you three things- keeps wickets, he opens the batting and he is a phenomenal white ball batter. His consistency and run scoring in the last couple of years has been phenomenal when he played for Punjab and other franchises plus at the same time he gives you three things so what better than this,” Gambhir told Star Sports.
