In a recent tete-a-tete with Rohit Sharma on Instagram, Yuvraj Singh made a very strong statement when he said that the current Indian team lacks role models apart from Kohli and Sharma. This statement didn’t go down very well with lots of Team India supporters. But not one to worry about public opinion Gautam Gambhir has backed his fellow southpaw.
Gautam Gambhir has seconded Yuvraj and gone on to say that there is a dearth of role models in the Indian camp today. He cited the examples from his time as a youngster and named the likes of Ganguly, Tendulkar, Dravid, Kumble and Laxman.
The Delhi lad further went on to say that the presence of seniors is very important in any squad as it helps the youngsters going through a rough patch at that point in time. It will be interesting to see how the social media fans of current cricketers react to this statement.
