IPL 2024: How Gautam Gambhir changed the fortunes of KKR, young players including Russel-Narine are also creating havoc

IPL 2024: Gautam Gambhir was the mentor of Lucknow Super Giants in 2022 and 2023, but in 2024 he has once again returned to the same team, which he had made champion twice. He is the mentor of Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2024 and he had led this team to the trophy in 2012 and 2014 under his captaincy. KKR has won all three matches so far in the current season of IPL and is currently at the top of the points table. Shreyas Iyer's captaincy has also been good, but much of the credit for this good performance is being given to the mentorship of Gautam Gambhir.

It is right to get Sunil Narine to open again

Sunil Narine is a bowler by profession, but in IPL he has made a lot of recognition as an explosive opening batsman. Narine was batting lower in the order for the last many years, but it is a wonderful fact that while opening for KKR, Narine has scored 863 runs in 43 matches, in which his strike rate has been more than 178. Now Gautam Gambhir has given him the opening back as soon as he came, where his 2 stormy innings in 3 matches have created a stir in the IPL. Narine has scored 134 runs in 3 matches so far this season.

Expressing great confidence in the youth

It is noteworthy that in the 3 matches of KKR so far in IPL 2024, they have shown a lot of trust in the youth. KKR's squad has experienced players like Manish Pandey and KS Bharat, but the entire team management including Gautam Gambhir has not hesitated in giving opportunities to youngsters like Angkrish Raghuvanshi, Ramandeep Singh and Vaibhav Arora. Angkrish played a stormy inning of 54 runs in his debut innings in IPL, while Vaibhav Arora has taken 3 wickets in a match this season.

Apart from this, Gautam Gambhir has also given free rein to Andre Russell. In the last few seasons, Russell's bat used to calm down after playing 2-3 big innings, but in 2024, Russell is playing the role of an excellent finisher for KKR by continuously playing stormy innings. Apart from scoring 105 runs so far this season, Russell has also taken 5 wickets.

Even before the start of the season, explosive opener Jason Roy had withdrawn his name from the tournament, but replacing him with Philip Salt has also proved to be a good decision for KKR. He is continuously working to provide a fast and steady start to Kolkata in the matches. Even before the start of IPL 2024, Gambhir played the role of a good mentor and boosted the morale of the players by giving Gurumantra to the team.
