New Delhi: Indian cricketer and Indian Premier League (IPL) side Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Gautam Gambhir said he is ready to take the challenge of captaining India in Test cricket.
"Absolutely, it is the biggest honour, ready for the responsibility of the challenge because you want to test yourself in different challenges as well," Gambhir told NDTV.
"But as I have always said a captain is only as good as his team. I think it is a successful team that makes a successful captain. It is not a successful captain that makes a successful team," he said.
Gambhir's KKR defeated MS Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the final match of Indian Premier League (IPL) in Chennai lift the maiden trophy last month.
"I am very happy, very lucky that I have been part of KKR because the best two years of my cricketing career in IPL.Though I played for Delhi for the first three years. I have never been so relaxed, I have never enjoyed so much of cricket that I have enjoyed in Kolkata and with KKR," he said.
Pertinently, Dhoni is the current skipper of the Indian side. Speaking about his own cricket he said: "I am very insecure guy when it comes to my profession, my insecurity are far more than my securities ...that's how I have played cricket. Since Under-14 I was told if you do not perform you will be dropped."
"Even at this stage, if I do not score runs in two or three game, I start getting that feeling
that I am going to be dropped," he said.
