Gautam Gambhir has got the impressive numbers under his kitty in the Indian Premier League (IPL). He led Kolkata Knight Riders to the success on a couple of occasions before moving back to Delhi Daredevils last season. Meanwhile, he opens up on various issues that IPL would bring to the table his continuation.

Gambhir intentionally moved from Kolkata Knight Riders to Delhi Daredevils to shoulder the team for the maiden IPL trophy. However, he failed to do so thus leaving the captaincy in the middle of the tournament as well.

There is never an end to your Journey – Gambhir on IPL

The stylish southpaw added there is always room for the improvement in player’s career. He quoted there is always something else to achieve which pushes him to lead the life.

Speaking on the Indian Premier League, he quoted the emergence of new players has made IPL put tougher challenges for the players. Gambhir believes the player will keep on continue unless he fails to meet the standards.

”You can always fill in something. There is never an end to your journey and probably the day I would feel that has been achieved, I obviously could not have continued playing. There is a vacuum and there is always something more to achieve in life as well and that is what makes a person work hard and keep going forward as well,” Gambhir said to Outlook.

“That will always happen because new players will come. Challenges will be different, players and franchises will get smarter. From the first to the eleventh edition, IPL has got tougher, better and more challenging. That is where the biggest challenge for any sportsman is. If you can keep growing with that challenge, that is what will keep you going,” the southpaw added.

However, it seems like Gautam Gambhir wants to continue his trade in the Indian Premier League for the upcoming edition as well. He always used to say he wants to see Delhi to win the title at least once.
