Virender Sehweg might have been voted 2008 Cricketer of the Year by Wisden but he has nothing but praise for his fellow Daredevil, Gautam Gambhir. Sehweg described him as a rare talent and stated, "He has all the virtues of a quality opener."
I don't know about that. Gambhir is in the ranks with Sachin in that he is only the fourth batsman from India to score a double century in a home tour game. Also his average runs are high which puts him up there in ranking to me.
It is very possible with some more hard work that most could rise up and meet more expectations that many are giving him right now. The question is, can he really do it or if not that, then, does he want to?
I am slowly starting to think that he does want to rise to the occasion but you know its always easier said than done. Players train hard and practice it seems forever to be th best and sometimes that still is not enough.
