With this demand of separate teams for separate formats it is almost sure that this ongoing T20 World Cup 2024 would be the  last for Indian Great batters Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli as Gambhir will be getting in new talent especially in T20 Squad. Ravindra Jadeja would probably be the 3rd player to be out from the T20 Indian Squad.

He played a critical role in winning the T20 World Cup 2007 for India which was in fact the first edition of the T20 world cup.

He started his Ipl career from Delhi Daredevils team from 2008 to 2010 edition and then moved to Kolkata Knight Riders. In the 2012 IPL edition, Gautum Gambhir being captain of KKR showed his leadership skills to manage the first title win for his team.





Then in the 2014 IPL edition, he again won the title for Kolkata Knight Riders 2nd time as a captain.
