Final outing: Gautam Gambhir steals the show


After the anxious wait to get his turn to have a bat after Andhra piled on 390 by lunch on Day Two, Gambhir’s presence at the crease turned the rest of the day into an event that is rare to a usual Ranji Trophy fixture of late. A guard of honour, a professional painter capturing the moment and a smattering of crowd egging him throughout the day were the highlights.
