Gautam Gambhir hung his boots from all forms of cricket yesterday and the decision sent a wave of shock amongst his fans after serving for the nation for more than a decade. Fans and current cricketers also heaped praises on the left-hander. Gambhir has also had quite a memorable time with Kolkata Knight Riders. The left-hander led the team to win the title in 2012 and 2014 in the IPL. Gambhir has scored 4217 runs in 152 matches and it is obvious that team KKR has been mighty impressed with the cricketer. Now, after Gambhir announced his retirement, he got a message from their co-owner Shah Rukh Khan.

Gambhir announced his retirement via a video message and said that he would miss the dressing room atmosphere the most. “The thing that I will miss the most is the camaraderie of an Indian team's dressing room. It was a wonderful place to be in. Yes, there are pressures of international sport but then when you have team-mates like I had these pressures look elementary. I learnt heaps from each one of them. I will miss all of that and more. Thank you guys, you all will be my one, big family,” he said.
