Gautam Gambhir, the India batsman and Kolkata Knight Riders skipper, has announced his foundation. Making the announcement on Twitter, Gambhir revealed its name as the Gautam Gambhir Foundation. He tweeted the photo with the message, “Friends, help me. strengthen my new initiative “Gautam Gambhir Foundation”, a drive for d less fortunate (sic).”

 

Gambhir has been a part of the Indian setup since 2003 and has been one of their best batsmen. However, in recent times, he hasn’t been a success at the highest level. However, he is still the captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders and has led them to two Indian Premier League (IPL) titles. Many cricketers around the world have their own charitable foundations and Gambhir joins that league with this initiative.
