The ex-Indian cricketer has applauded England‘s star cricketer, Ben Stokes, and uttered no one can be comparative to his level. He mentioned that currently, not only in India, no one can beat his class from global cricket.
Ben’s tactics are not clouded as the crowd is aware of his bombastic deliverance in all the departments of the three formats. His T20Is, ODIs, and Test’s stats are far beyond excellency and praising his leading skills after he coordinated the team against West Indies’ team, Gautam says he is a leader in captaincy skills.
Ben Stokes is incomparable to anyone in the World Cricket: Gautam Gambhir
“You can’t compare anyone in India at the moment with Ben Stokes. Absolutely not, because Ben Stokes is in his own league. What he has done in Test cricket, what he has done in one-day cricket, what he has done in T20 cricket, I don’t think so there’s anyone, let alone in India, there isn’t anyone who’s even close to him in world cricket at the moment.”
Speaking about the luck, the former cricketer said if a team owns a player like him, it is treasured for the side having a pro in all departments of red and white ball games
“And that is the kind of impact player you need in every line-up. It would be a dream for every captain to have someone like Ben Stokes – whether he’s batting, whether he’s bowling, whether he’s fielding – and he’s a leader in his own capacity. You don’t have to be a leader to be a leader, you don’t need to be called a captain to be a captain.
You can be a leader by your own performances as well. So, I think there are a lot of guys who would be actually looking to be like Ben Stokes, but unfortunately, there’s no one at the moment in world cricket.” said the 38-year-old.
