Gautam Gambhir is heartbroken after losing his pet dog

One of the best opening batsmen India has produced in the twenty-first century is the former cricketer Gautam Gambhir. In the 2007 T20 World Cup final and the 2011 ODI World Cup final, Gambhir was India's match-winner at-bat, making crucial runs as the Indians won both championships. Gambhir, who retired from the game, now analyzes games without bias and has frequently been excessively harsh toward several contemporary Indian players. On Saturday, though, Gambhir shared his sorrow at the passing of his beloved dog on social media.

Gambhir remarked that he won't experience the same happiness returning to his house without his dog, sharing an old photo of the two of them.

'Coming back home will never be the same! Farewell, my dear' Gambhir wrote a caption on X (Twitter) for an old photo.

Returning to his analysis of cricket, Gambhir recently stated that he disagrees with the over-hype surrounding Yashasvi Jaiswal's double century, arguing that it puts too much pressure on them and compromises their natural style of play.

In the second Test match against England in Visakhapatnam on Saturday, Jaiswal achieved his first-ever Test double century, making history as the third-youngest Indian player to do so in his still-developing but impressive career.

On the second day of the match, the 22-year-old, who was playing in only his sixth Test, single-handedly led India to 396 all out in 112 overs with a stunning knock of 209 off 290 balls.

With his achievement, Jaiswal became the first left-hander from India to reach a double hundred in the conventional format since Gambhir. Gambhir accomplished the feat in an Australian match in 2008.

'I want to advise everyone to let the young man play, but more importantly, I want to congratulate him on his accomplishment. In an interview with PTI, Gambhir said, 'We've seen in the past that we in India, particularly the media, tend to overhype their achievements, give them tags, and make them look like heroes.'

'The players are unable to play their natural game because the strain of expectation overcomes them. Let him develop and have fun with cricket,' Gambhir continued.
