Gautam Gambhir was dropped from Team India because of his 'attitude problem', says Sandeep Patil

Recommended Posts

Sandeep Patil: Gambhir was India's primary choice as opener when they toured England in 2011. However, Gambhir took a blow to his head during the series and decided to return home. "I used to be the Director of the NCA during that period. I was in shock when I saw the reports of the physio and the doctors, who confirmed that his injury was not serious at all, and he should have continued in that series.

This is shocking tbh, Sandeep Patil seems to indicate that GG faked the injury after taking a blow on the head. Many of us on ICF too had similar suspicion that time. To make matters worse even Bhajji faked a stomach injury after going for 0/200 and getting manhandled by KP. We had many injuries on that tour and the then no 1 team had to make the keeper bowl (Cool :phehe:), Yuvi as frontline spinner :facepalm:, Dravid as opener after carrying the bat etc....nightmare of a tour that !!!! Hate fakers, especially sportsmen who do it when they are under the pump and unable to deal with adversity, even Dhawan pulled a similar stunt in Brisbane 2014 which messed our batting order and led us to an unexpected defeat from a good position. Need to come down hard on such fakers, need real men in our team and not pansies.

Also quit his county stint with Essex in 2013 and returned home before his contract expired. Even though he score a century for Essex, I guess he is not confident about playing in England 

Or may be didn't want to put in the hard yards. Expected callback just like that on the basis of his past reputation.

Sandeep Patil was NCA director from 2010-12 and Chairman of Selectors from 2012-16, so clearly his words matter. Faking an injury that too when your team is struggling is the lowest of all lows, Swann retired mid series when his team was under Johnson's ambush and that was quite pathetic. In spite of all this Patil did give GG several breaks in all 3 formats when he was chief selector, as we know the southpaw couldn't capitalize.

I don't know if GG faked it but I will not doubt the commitment of GG. He has been exemplary in the way he supports the Indian army and the way he resigned from his captaincy post in DD. Also, I remember how he passed his MOM to a youngster for his improvement. 

Let us respect GG for what he gave us. I surely understand that he is a hot-headed guy and has ego issues with everyone who is also a leader material such as MSD, Viru etc.

Of late this "aggression" has become the epitome of the modern cricketer. When GG quit (and thats what he did - quit), Dravid and Laxman had to pick up the slack from him and a 38 year old Dravid did more than what was expected. Dravid had more aggression IMO he just didnt say MC BC to express how much aggression he had.

 

Notice Sachin didnt move from his no.4 spot. Even Saurav went in no.4 to shield sachin in a match. Our team had a lot of selfish cricketers and this had to be made public otherwise we are never gonna be a team like Australia and West Indies was. As far as GG supported the Indian army does he go in and fight with the Indian army. Hypocrites.

 

PS: Dravid had enough integrity to quit after the failed Australia series which was the first time he wasnt among the runs after a whirlwind tour of england

This just shows the lack of plans from the team management and the selectors. 2011-2015 was the lowest period in performance for Indian Test cricket. It was so bad I even stopped watching Test Cricket, for I am a huge fan of longer format.

Why do u type rubbish if he was so selfish and doesn't want to change his batting order . Why did he came at 4 in odi and let ganguli and Sehwag open in odi.

That's the only thing you have problem with. We are talking about GG faking an injury when the going got tough. Coming in at no.4 in a few ODIs is not some great achievement. Im talking about tests when GG went home, Dravid opened and Sachin failed to move to no.3. Laxman had to come in at no.3.

That was sad to watch. Dravid carried his bat and was exhausted yet he came again to open. Sachin vehemently refused to open that innings to give Dravid time to rest, very selfish thing to do. Also in that series Dravid was wrongly adjudged caught behind (ball hit his shoe laces) and wanted to review but SRT stopped him because he wanted review for himself, Sachin of 2011-13 was the most selfish cricketer the world has ever seen, quite unlike the 90s version.

Supporting Indian Army has nothing to do with his cricket exploits. You can be a patriot yet a quitter in your personal/professional life....I don't see any link between these 2. Yes GG has done some admirable selfless things in cricket like you mentioned and I sympathized with him when Dhoni used him as a punching bag in 2012 CB series to deflect blame from our poor performance, he was not given his dues. But if what Sandeep Patil is telling is true, may be we will have to re evaluate GG's character. He didn't pull this stunt in a circus T20 league or exho match. He did this when we were getting our asses kicked in the battle for no 1 spot in test cricket, in the most hyped up and high profile test series that year.

I dont care for Greg Chapell and his coaching methods but he focused on youth and asked the senoirs to show more responsibility by batting up in tests and down in ODIs. We would have won a lot of matches if Dravid opened and Sachin batted at one down in tests. In the 90s, we would see Dravid at 1/1 and Sachin 11/2 they would have atleast saved a wicket by batting up.

The best batsman in most countries batted at no.3. Don Bradman, Viv Richards, Brian Lara, Ricky Ponting, Steve Smith, etc

I have issues with Sandeep Patil here. Gautam Gambhir has always been my favorite batsman. Anyone who questions his commitment to the game does not know the guy.

Regarding that series there is only one person I would blame and that is Dhoni.

Gambhir was fiery and hard working cricketer but he had  holes in his technique but one thing we cannot say bad about him is his commitment.Patil is either lying or has no clue about Gambhir.

Gambhir was never same after that head Injury, even at home. So calling that Injury fake seems like BS to me. Sometimes staff doesn't really know what is going on. How many times you hear staff having no clue regarding the Injury.

So it made him selfish and how do u exactly know he wasv unwilling  to move at 3, May be laxman had no issue to move at 3. Do u have any link to prove or it's just us hate to Sachin which is popping out.

Its just observation. You cannot have proof for what happened between closed doors and between players. And other players will be black balled if they commit heresy against Sachin by media backlash from bhakts like you. You are not a judge in some supreme court and you cannot say "prove it or fake". This is my opinion and shared by quite a few. Also read this from another poster

Its not a question of hating. I see this repeated in this generation of cricketers. Your first post accused me of spouting rubbish so you are not going to be convinced even if I do happen to have locker room footage and audio.

Y should I take up the other poster word, when u r opening threads with a narrow agenda to point out a certain player. Also I have given evidence that Sachin has already batted at different position when the team needed. May be team management did not want to change his batting position in test knowing he is the best batsmen in lineup and as dravid comes at one down so he is more suited to open the inning. Besides there were 4 other batters as well so y u r calling him only selfish. I m no bhakt but hate it when some no name would call goat who served nation for more than 20 yrs with utmost honesty. Had he been selfish would have never given up captaincy like Lara or would have fixed matches when most of his team mates were involved in it and no one would have dared to call him out just like someone called cool from some franchises CSK who he was VP.

I've been there for a long time. I had a message from a moderator that my complaint about my post responding in kind to a Pak poster (couldn't remember what it was about) that "blah blah...there will be some Pak bias because its a Pak forum after all". I checked after the CT17 where some posters were saying that site became hyper abusive following the PAK win. I could point out more and more and this is from a heavily moderated forum.

You keep repeating about evidence about his ODI record. Im talking about his test record. Maybe you need to read carefully. Dravid doesnt like opening and VVS is unsuitable to play no.3 in english conditions. But due to a crisis, Dravid did open and Sachin should have moved to 3. Did you see the post from the other guy. You obviously didnt. This is because of your blind perception that Sachin can do no wrong. Your ARE a bhakt or at least engage in hero worship no matter how much you deny it. See him as a human and everyone can see his imperfections. We all have them. In case you dont see them, he is more of a robot than a god.

I keep saying abt odi just to open your eye that he was not reluctant as you r making him out. I have seen other poster comments as well, I can show u 1000 of post where people agreed that best batsmen in the lineup should not change their position and it doesn't make them selfish. If I m bhakt then u r certainly a blind heater, whose only agenda is to find fault in people who have brought laurel to the country. No one is perfect every one has some demerits it only shows he is human and no God. But calling someone selfish just to look different from masses  and tht to when no evidence to backup is pure hatred. Someone rightly called you a Pakistani otherwise no Indian would deny Sachin or any other greats contribution and call them selfish.

You yourself keep hating on ATG Indian player like Dhoni every chance you get and then showing double standard when someone questions Sachin. See around yourself, there are 100s of posts filled with agenda against players other than Sachin, you seem to be enjoying and even participating in those agenda filled threads and posts. Why so much hypocracy bro?

Gambhir was the top bat in world for sometime. No one even came close to him as an opener. I understand our pakistani brethren hating him as he showed the whole green nation their rightful place.

I have also seen him drop to 4 in ODIs when he was in England or new zealand. Surely it wasn't out of helping his teammates rather than throwing them to the fire. Yes you can show 1000 of posts from other people because they are all bhakts and will agree to your point of view. I'm not a hater I just dont like it that I go to a test match and watch them put individual records before team requirements. Now watch this video and tell me what you think 114 off 146 balls in 2012 against Bangladesh

Every one is bhakt and who are you , you are ISO 9001 2000, issuing behavioral certificate to everyone. You only remembers Sachin played above inning and you keep it refering to all the sachin hatred thread . In the 1996 World Cup when we had so many lallu panju players in our line up sachin alone took india to semi final. Apart from 2007 World Cup he performed in every world cup. Its not his fault that our bowlers always choked in the knockouts that we had to chase difficult targets.Also against bangaladesh it was not his fault if bowler unable to defend the match, i can show you several other innings by all kohli,rohit and dhoni who played even worse inning than this does it mean all of them were playing selfishly.
Sachin played innings like Sharjhah where again he first took india to final by scoring the required runs to maintain higher net run rate and then won the final. He played a similar inning against Zimbabwe in 1997 tour of Soutj Africa I think(in Benoni) where he alone helped india to score those runs in required overs to throw Zimbabwe out of the tri angular series.

By just looking at you tube video alone you will never understand what sachin was and how indian fans always had their heart in their mouth whenever he got out. You can't compare the kind of expectations people had with Sachin with any other cricketer on planet. Also if we are bhakt than fine but you are nothing but an envy aunty who has problem with every thing good.

Sachin has already left cricket and questioning something valid is fine but just calling someone selfish out of hatred is not  good. I can understand when people questions he extended his cricket and  you have people for an against.  That is fine but calling the only iconic player which we have during 90s and 100s based on own assumption/opinion and putting his 100th 100 video in all the sachin hatred thread is what i am calling out here. Dhoni , kohli,rohit still plays and we alway debabate about the good/bad what they are doing as that is impacting indian cricket. Where do you see i only criticize dhoni. Just because you are dhoni chamcha bro don't think i have only criticize dhoni . Please pay attention to other threads as well.

Bhakt confirmed. Yes Indian team depended on Sachin in the 96 wc. Sachin alone did not take us into the semifinal. I'm sure you were not born by that time. Your lalloo and panju players like Sidhu, Jadeja, Kumble, Prasad, and Srinath knocked Pak out. Sachin played nervously for a slow 30. Look at it and stop typing nonsense.

That Bangladesh match we were supposed to score more than 300 to support our shitty bowlers. 290 was not as big as it was in the 90s. He consumed about half the balls to score 114 when the team score was 290. Gimme a break.

Even in that Zimbabwe match, Jadeja and Robin Singh finished the match off. If they were lalloos like you said we would have lost. And Zimbabwe is a team which we are supposed to beat. Stop making Zimbabwe as some major team even though they can surprise a few teams. They were the Bangladesh of today. Sachin was great in 98 (probably his best year) no arguments there. Leave your rose tinted glasses and see it for what it is

As if the pak match was only match played in 96 wc. Who was the highest scorer from india in 96/2003/2011 wc. Does that knock out match won by jadeja/sidhu/srinath/prasad alone. You youreself refer it took all of them to win the match. You have shamelessly  ignored all other matches where sachin performed, in Sachin case it's his responsblity to win matches along while for others it require team effort. Did we win against bangaladesh only after making 300 always, as i said you fool that if it was selfish inning what about kohli/rohit and dhoni innings against aus where we got 4-1 drubbing. were they all selfish or our bowling was not capable enough to win matches. Anyway i have said enough you can continue your hate agenda it doesn't bother me, may be you can get be a rajdip or nidhi rajdan larueal of icfers.

As if the pak match was only match played in 96 wc. Who was the highest scorer from india in 96/2003/2011 wc. Does that knock out match won by jadeja/sidhu/srinath/prasad alone. You youreself refer it took all of them to win the match.

The pak match was a QF meaning knockout match. If we didnt win it, we would have knocked out of the WC by our archrivals at our home. So you say when Scahin performs, other 10 are lalloos and when he fails (and we win) its a team effort. This is mental gymnastics par excellence. I dont care about averages and personal milestones. Nobody put that responsibility in him and THE OTHERS were right. It is a team effort. THere is no I in TEAM.

Yes you are right about the 4-1 drubbing when Rohit and Kohli were playing for centuries rather than accelerating. This has harangued the Indian team for decades and still goes on. You have used the term hate multiple times where I have not used it. It seems you are the one hating for calling out selfish batting from your god. Your name calling proves that you are infact hating.

I'm done with this subject. Please feel free to type in your last word and abuse me like an internet warrior does.

Since some people really can't have it without dragging Sachin into it. 

Try as much as you want to tell your untold story, any player will be counted higher on integrity than someone whose team was banned for match fixing and lied in the court.

Why you are only quoting the matches where he din't play well, is he not allowed to have a bad day when he was already the highest scorer in the torunament? Why don't you quote 2008 cb series final, Sharjah final, 2011 wc sf and 2003 match against archrivals. Where he played crucial role and took india home. I am calling all other as lallu panju because what these greats sidhu/jadeja/ kuruvila and mohanty were doing when Sachin was making centuries in austrailia/eng/nz/sa in tests and we were not able to take wkts or inspite of his centuries we were making 220 or smth in tests abroad. Also in 96 sf once sachin gone what other greats did, till the time sachin was playing we were on course to have a victory once he was gone we were down like a pack of card. Similarly match against aus he made 90 and put a good foundation for win but eventually we were not able to cross the target because of one tick pony batting of azzu/jadeja/kambli/sidhu and other greats which you have named before. How does these are sachin mistakes. What personal milestone you are talking, who has highest strike rate among indians when sachin used to play. He has sr of 85 overall, dhoni/kohli and other boosted their sr only because now a days most of the good batsmen have sr of 90 and even then they are not much superior in terms of SR. how many batsmen in history who has made more than 10000 have that strike rate. I can go on and on, but your hatred would not see the good thing, you will only remember inning where he failed as if he doesn't allowed to have bad games and then you can call him selfish.
