Gambhir spoke about how India as a nation needs to come united against the terrorist activity that is tormenting out country since past one month or so.Gambhir was asked about the debate that is currently going on in India about if there should be a bad on Pakistani artists or if there should be a ban on India playing cricket with Pakistan to which the left-handed batsman replied, "I absolutely endorse no ties with Pakistan till the time cross-border terrorism finishes." <strong><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/new-zealand-in-india-2016-200406/live-scores/india-vs-new-zealand-2nd-odi-match-181604-summary.html" target="_blank">FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs New Zealand, 2nd ODI at Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>&nbsp; <p></p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"> <p></p><p dir="ltr" lang="en"><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/EXCL?src=hash">#EXCL</a> I absolutely endorse no ties with Pakistan till the time cross border terrorism finishes: Cricketer Gautam Gambhir speaks to <a href="https://twitter.com/TimesNow">@TimesNow</a> <a href="https://t.co/vWUa3pdTMW">pic.twitter.com/vWUa3pdTMW</a></p> <p></p> TIMES NOW (@TimesNow) <a href="https://twitter.com/TimesNow/status/788323246227591168">October 18, 2016</a></blockquote> <p></p>&nbsp; <p></p> <p></p>Moreover, Gambhir also said that those debating over this issue should put themselves in the shoes of all those who have lost their lives at the border and about their family members who lost their father, children and so on. Gambhir's reply gives a straightforward idea that the aggressive batsman is being firm and at the same time aggressive as well about his role towards the current debate and that he will not change his opinion will also not keep any ties with Pakistan till all the issues related to terrorism are resolved, how much ever time it takes to. <p></p> <p></p>Gambhir is just coming out from a good Test match against New Zealand wherein was included in the squad nearly after 4 years when opener<a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/shikhar-dhawan" target="_blank"> Shikhar Dhawan</a> was ruled out due to injury. Gambhir had displayed excellent batting techniques against <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/new-zealand" target="_blank">New Zealand </a>and with the way he performed in his comeback Test, it seems to on the cards that Gambhir is included in the squad for a long home season of Test cricket when India will face England and then Australia.
