Gautam Gambhir Fires Yet Another Shot At Virat Kohli, Labels Him An Unsuccessful Player, Hints Virat Plays For Personal Milestones. Starting on January 10, the Indian cricket team will play a three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka. Although the World Super League does not apply to this ODI Series, both teams are eager to find the right lineup. Virat Kohli, who scored a century in the third One-Day International against Bangladesh, is eager to carry on his recent success.
Since Afghanistan just trounced the island nation in an ODI match, raising concerns about the dynamics of their team, this ODI Series will be very important for the country. There is no doubt that Sri Lanka has a strong batting lineup, but they still require a middle-overs stability player.
Gautam Gambhir statement on Virat Kohli
Gautam Gambhir was having an interaction with Star Sports and was asked about Virat Kohli. “There are very few players who get so many chances to play World Cups. Yusuf (Pathan) and I have played only one 50-over World Cup. This will be Virat Kohli’s fourth World Cup. There cannot be a bigger achievement than having two 50-over World Cup medals in your home. Very few players will have two 50-over World Cup medals,” said Gautam Gambhir.
“Individual records are important, the number of runs you score gives you immense happiness at the end of your career, but if you ask any player, how many World Cups you have won is the parameter of how much you have achieved,” he added.

Gautam Gambhir on Virat Kohli’s Role
Gautam Gambhir was asked about Virat’s role in the lineup. “50-over format – absolutely, because 50-over format is the one format where you need an anchor. You probably don’t need to anchor that much in the T20 format, and Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma’s experience will remain very important,” said Gautam Gambhir.
“If you have impactful players – if you select Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer – it is the first World Cup for all of them. So Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli’s experience will be very important, that how the entire batting lineup bats around them. I believe in this format Virat Kohli’s role is very important, more than T20 and Test cricket,” he added.
