Sorry to see @GautamGambhir retire from all cricket. He’s one of our most under-appreciated batsmen, an intelligent &thoughtful captain whose accomplishments as a cricketer deserved more applause. &His retirement statement is the best I’ve seen! https://t.co/oPTnnvxOix

You had a wonderful career @GautamGambhir, one that you can be genuinely proud of. You played a big part in two of the biggest moments in Indian cricket, you were among the best in test cricket at your peak and you will have a page in the IPL. Few get that from this game. Go well
