No one can act like Bachchan saab or bat like Viru: Gautam Gambhir

New Delhi: Delhi skipper Gautam Gambhir on Saturday likened batting with his good friend Virender Sehwag to acting with Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan.

In an interview with the Indian Express, the Delhi captain described how it was to bat with the flamboyant right-hander when they opened the batting for India.

Despite watching Viru demolish bowling attacks from the other end, Gambhir stated he never got carried away or tried to bat like his partner.

"No it wasn't tough as I knew my game really well. While I knew what I could do but more importantly I knew what I couldn't do. Therefore I never attempted to play an upper cut or a slog sweep.

It was not about matching Viru's strokeplay but about matching his attitude or mind. It's a bit like acting with Amitabh Bachchan where other actors could be tempted to act like the great man. No one can act like Bachchan saab or bat like Virender Sehwag," Gambhir said.
