Gautam Gambhir has announced his retirement from all forms of the game.

When Team India was looking for an ideal partner for Virender Sehwag in the opening slot

in came the Delhi born – Gautam Gambhir. Gambhir and Sehwag’s opening duo terrorized the cricketing world, due to their attacking array of shots, and a telepathic understanding between the wickets.

As a pair, they aggregated 4412 runs from 87 stands for the opening wicket,  which was only behind that of 6920 partnership runs by Sachin Tendulkar & Rahul Dravid among Indian pairs.

Sehwag-Gambhir pair was the fifth-best in terms of runs tally with 11, 100-plus stands and 25, fifty-plus stands.
