Nov 26: As Mahendra Singh Dhoni is given rest for the upcoming New Zealand ODI series; India’s so called ‘Run Machine’ Gautam Gambhir gets an opportunity to lead India. Even the master blaster Sachin Tendulkar and the explosive Virender Sehwag, will also not feature in the series. BCCI is seeing Gambhir as the future captain of India. There is no doubt over Gautam’s potential and he is quite experienced in International cricket now. India won the Test series against New Zealand by 1-0 and the team is ready for the ODIs. It’s a series of five ODIs. The first match is on Nov 28 at Guwahati in Nehru stadium.

“To be a captain of India was always my dream and I’m very happy that it has come true. Of course it will be a very huge responsibility on my shoulders, and I’m ready to take that responsibility. I’m confident that we will win the series. I hope that the young brigade of my team will win us the tournament, under my captainship. Definitely the young guns will have to fire to do well in the tournament.” said the excited Gautam Gambhir. “Even I have a great experience of leading Delhi and the IPL team Delhi daredevils, so this will help me much.” added Gambhir.

Gambhir will have a very good support from his young players like Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli, Murali Vijay and Saurabh Tiwary. But he will have to be without strike bowler Praveen Kumar, in the bowling department as he is down with fever. Ashish Nehra has replaced Praveen for the first ODI. Wriddhiman Saha is the new face in the team and will handle the responsibility of wicket keeping. New Zealand will certainly look to exploit the Indian conditions as much as possible, as the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 is very near.

Hello everyone this is Ronak Parekh and I’m currently student of S.Y.B.M.M. I’m 20 years old from Mumbai. I choose my career in B.M.M because I always wanted to do something which is of my interest. And my passion has always been sports especially cricket and F1. I really want to be linked with sports in my future. B.M.M course gives the opportunity in journalism from where I can move to sports category. When I was child I always used to play and watch cricket a lot which usually most of the people does. I gained my interest in F1 due to only one man and that was none other than seven time world champion Michael Schumacher. Actually I’m also very passionate about cars so it is really fun when I see this sport. Today I’m really excited about getting an opportunity to do internship for three months with the sports mirror, where I will have full freedom to express my views and opinions regarding every sport. I definitely will try my best to write the articles as good as possible which would be worth interesting for readers. I really whole heartedly thanking the sports mirror again for giving me this vital opportunity and I promise I will make the most of it.
