Gautam Gambhir dismissed reports of him joining politics by saying that it was nothing more than a rumour.
When asked about the reports that the southpaw was set to join BJP and contest for a Lok Sabha seat, the former Indian opener told the Mumbai Mirror: “It is all a rumour. I don’t know who started it.”
The 37-year-old also added that India are currently in transition and will find it difficult to win in Australia. While he remained non-committal about who was going to win the series, he did add that the hosts are a handful in their own backyard.
“Heart says India, but mind says Australia,” he added.
