Training under Justin Langer to take my game to 'invincible levels': Gautam Gambhir

Bengaluru, July 3: Aiming for a comeback into the Indian team, Gautam Gambhir is working hard to take his game to "invincible levels". And to achieve that he is currently training under former Australian opener and coach Justin Langer in Perth.

The 33-year-old Gambhir last played for India in a Test in August 2014 against England. Since then he has been left to ply his trade in the domestic circuit.

Now, as he tries to revive his international career, the Delhi batsman has flown to Australia for coaching sessions with Langer.

"It's not about ironing the flaws. In fact, I want to take my game to invincible levels. That is why I am here," Gambhir told "Reuters" news agency on Friday (July 3) while talking about his stint under Langer in Australia.

"My schedule here is revolved around a lot of batting in the nets and facing up to the Western Australia bowlers. I also did a bit of mix martial arts and gymnastics, which was fun," he added in an e-mail interview.

So far, Gambhir has featured in 56 Tests, 147 ODIs and 37 T20Is for India. He has scored more than 10,000 international runs.

Gambhir said he is enjoying his cricket at the moment and not thinking too much about national comeback. He also praised Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma, the ODI openers for India.

"I think Shikhar and Rohit are doing a good job. I mean Rohit got two double hundreds and Shikhar had a decent World Cup. As far as my comeback is concerned, I am enjoying the journey at the moment without worrying too much about the destination," he said.
