Former Indian Batsman Gautam Gambhir Says “Records Are Only For Media And Fans” Ahead of India-New Zealand Clash At T20 World Cup

Highlights:

  • India to face New Zealand in the ICC T20 World Cup
  • Gautam Gambhir say that “records are only for media and fans” as the recent results pull towards the Kiwis
  • In February 2020, India not only lost the Test series but also ODI series against New Zealand

The former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir believes that the upcoming clash between India and New Zealand at the ICC T20 World Cup will be an evenly-contested battle, even though the recent results between the two sides have been leaning towards the Kiwis.

New Zealand also knocked out India in the ICC 2019 ODI World Cup, defeating the Virat Kohli-led side in the semifinal.

In February last year, team India led by Virat Kohli travelled to New Zealand, where they not only lost the Test series but also the ODI series to the Kane Williamson-led team. The recent World Test Championship final defeat against NZ further showcased India’s inability to beat the Kiwis in the ICC tournaments.

However, the former Indian batsman, Gautam Gambhir, believes that records do not matter on a match day, and players do not think about the past results. He said, “Absolutely 50-50. When you go to such a big tournament, the records are only for the media and the fans.

“The records do not matter for the players at all and they do not think about them as well,” he said on Star Sports’ Game Plan.

“Yes, you can think about your individual record. If a player is struggling against a particular bowler, that can be on his mind.

“But Pakistan having never won against India and India having never won against New Zealand, that never matters.

“India can definitely defeat New Zealand, you have the firepower. You have Jasprit Bumrah, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul – when you have batsmen and bowlers like these, it will not be easy for New Zealand”.

However, Gambhir also insisted that India cannot take the Kiwis lightly as they are one of the best teams in the world of cricket as of this moment.

Gambhir said, “We cannot say New Zealand are the underdogs because they are a very very well-balanced side. “They have Trent Boult and Lockie Ferguson, and they have the firepower in the batting. So, you will have to play good cricket”.
