Flamboyant former all-rounder Yuvraj had recently said there are not enough role models in the current Indian team besides Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma
Former India opener Gautam Gambhir on Saturday agreed with his teammate Yuvraj Singh that there is a dearth of role models in the current squad.
Flamboyant former all-rounder Yuvraj had recently said there are not enough role models in the current Indian team besides Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
Backing Yuvraj's view, Gambhir said, "I agree with Yuvraj that there is a dearth of role models in the Indian team currently."
Speaking on Star Sports show 'Cricket Connected', Gambhir, one of the stars of the 2011 World Cup final, said, "Like in the 2000s, we had Dravid, Kumble, Laxman, Sourav and Sachin to guide the team.
"It is important to have senior players around you who can help you when you're going through a rough patch. Right now, I don't think there are enough seniors in the Indian camp, who will set aside their self-interest to help youngsters."
A few days ago, Yuvraj also felt alike when asked by India limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma about the difference between the current team and the ones he had played for.
"When I came into the team or when you (Rohit) came into the team, our seniors were very disciplined. Obviously, there was no social media so there were no distractions," Yuvraj had said.
