New Delhi: IPL season is going to be smashed soon. But there is a disappointment for the Kolkata Knight Riders fans especially Gautam Gambhir fans. Gautam Gambhir likely to miss opening few IPL matches as the senior opener is down with jaundice.Gambhir, who was in being thought as an replacement to the injured Shikhar Dhawan in the fourth Test against Australia, underwent a few blood tests and jaundice was detected ruling him out of the match starting on Friday. As of now, he might require rest for a period of three weeks in order to get back into play again.
Gambhir recently has played a marvellous inning against Punjab in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Twenty20 Tournament where he made an unbeaten 68 in 54 balls to leave a successful chase.
It is still a questionable that in the absence of Gautam Gambhir, who will be taking the responsibility of KKR. However, South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis or New Zealand`s wicketkeeper-batsman Brendon McCullum might take that chance to lead the team. McCullum has already had an experience of leading KKR during the disastrous second edition in South Africa where they finished at the bottom of the heap.So, Kallis seems to be the favorite to lead the side if Gambhir misses the first few matches of the IPL.
The reason for these two names can be the fact that there aren`t too many Indian players of stature who can replace Gambhir.
