The Gautam Gambhir Problem

Gambhir just scored a good century. How does one rate a stop-start career like Gambhir's? When Ganguly returns to the sqaud, would Gambhir have done enough to dislodge Sehwag from the squad. The Test series against Bangladesh presents the ideal opportunity. With Jaffer having almost cemented his half of the opening riddle, Gambhir has the ideal platform to show that he can provide India with the same options that Sehwag did. A good show in Test matches will at the very least influence the selector's thinking when they pick the next ODI squad.
