Gautam Gambhir, the Kolkata Knight Riders captain, would rather be a part of an overseas series winning India team than just be a batsman with 30 Test hundreds

Gautam Gambhir, the Kolkata Knight Riders captain, would rather be a part of an overseas series winning India team than just be a batsman with 30 Test hundreds. He speaks in the Indian Express about his style of captaincy, player retirements and his motivations as an international cricketer.

I will be very honest: since I am leading KKR, if I feel that if a youngster just wants to play IPL, he will never play for KKR. Never. I will make sure that he isn't picked for KKR because IPL is a platform where you express yourself and express your talent and that will help you play for India.
