The former Test cricketer confirmed that his date of birth is 1995 and 1997 in the book is publishing error.

“Some rivalries were personal, some professional. First the curious case of Gambhir. Oh, poor Gautam. He and his attitude problem. He has no personality. He who is barely a character in the great scheme of cricket. He who has no great records just a lot of attitude.” he quoted in his book.
