Ready to bat at No. 3 for KKR: Gambhir

Kolkata, Apr 21: Kolkata Knight Riders captain Gautam Gambhir on Friday said he was all set to bat at number three if his team required during this season's Indian Premier League.

Gambhit batted at number three in the first two matches, but without any success he got out for 16 and 0, while he opened the batting in the last four matches scoring two half-centuries.

"Knight Riders is not just my team it is all about 23 players. What I think is best eleven and is the best batting order. In the first two matches I thought I needed to go and bat at number three and after that there was a need to open the innings. I will again go back to number three if needed. There is no place for individuals in the team and it is all about winning," he said.

The Delhi batsman, who attended a promotional event, backed out-of-form teammate Yusuf Pathan.

"Only six matches have been held now. I think Yusuf only needs one match to turn things around. I have full faith in him and all the 23 players," he said.

Gambhir said, being a professional cricketers he had no issues with the hectic IPL schedule.

"I am not alone who has this hectic schedule. In fact, in most professions people have hectic schedules," he said.
