Gautam Gambhir joins BJP and the Twitter erupts with mixed reactions!

Ex-Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir has formally joined the Bharatiya Janata Party on Friday ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.

Former worldwide cricketer Gautam Gambhir joined BJP today in the presence of union ministers Arun Jaitley and Ravi Shankar Prasad and is likely to be fielded from New Delhi constituency in the Lok Sabha elections.

Talking to reporters, Gambhir said he joined BJP with "sir's blessings" (referring to Jaitley) and as he is inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He was recently awarded the Padma Shri. The party hasn't revealed yet whether the cricketer will contest the upcoming national elections.

In the words of Finance minister Arun Jaitley, no match can be won without batting on the front foot and BJP has now found a cricketer to bat for it. And now, BJP has welcomed the former cricketer Gautam Gambhir, who as per sources might contest from New Delhi constituency. A final decision is yet to be taken though. I have done all that I could in cricket and this is a fabulous opportunity for me to do something great for this country, take this party forward and make this country a far better place to live. I don't know if I am going to be as good a coach as I have been a player.

Alito added that all the problems with the "history" added onto the death sentence that was handed to Flowers in his six trial. The sixth and most recent trial, which ended with a conviction, is the matter now before the high court.

Gambhir who last played for India in a Test match in 2016, has played 58 Tests and 147 ODIs for the country scoring 9392 including 20 centuries. He led KKR to two IPL title wins in 2012 and 2014.

It was in December 2018 when Gambhir chose to shock his fans by announcing his unexpected retirement from the game of Cricket.

Gambhir, who averaged 41.95 in Tests and 39.68 in ODIs, finished with over 10,000 runs in worldwide cricket in all three formats. He is the only Indian batsman to have scored more than 300 runs in four consecutive Test series.
