Hemant Dua, said,”I had maintained post the auction that Gauti (Gambhir) has unfinished business with the franchise. He was the second-highest scorer during the last IPL. But above all, he is a leader, so this appointment was an easy choice. Both Ricky (Ponting) and Gauti have spoken to each other. I am glad that they are both on the same page.”
