BJP leader Arun Jaitley, who was present at the announcement, did not reveal the constituency where the party will field the former Indian cricketer from. “Let’s leave it to the country’s Election Committee. For now, we are happy he joined the party,” he said.

Gautam Gambhir called it quits from all forms of cricket in December 2018, with the Ranji Trophy game between Delhi and Andhra Pradesh being his last cricket match.

“The next Ranji Trophy match against Andhra will be my last game in the sun. It is all coming to an end from where it started at Feroz Shah Kotla,” the former Indian cricketer said in his video announcement, which was shared on social media platform. “As a batsman, I have always valued timing. I know the time is just right and I am sure it’s sweet as well,” he said.

Gautam Gambhir has always been vocal about today’s events and problems happening in society and especially on our India’s stand on terrorism including cricketing ties with neighbours. He shares his views on Twitter and regarding the pollution issues in Delhi, he slammed Arvind Kejriwal. Check out the tweet below:
