Gautam Gambhir announced his retirment from all forms of cricket on Tuesday, with the Ranji Trophy game between Delhi and Andhra, starting on Thursday at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in the Capital, to be his last game.

"The next Ranji trophy match against Andhra will be my last game in the sun. It is all coming to an end from where it started at Feroz Shah Kotla," Gambhir said in his video announcement, which was shared on social media. "As a batsman I have always valued timing. I know the time is just right and I am sure it's sweet as well," he said.

The 37-year-old batsman from Delhi has played 58 Tests (4154 runs), 147 One-Day Internationals (5238 runs) and 37 Twenty20 Internationals. He has also played 197 first-class matches.

However, if one takes a closer look at his social media and the predilection for sical commentary that is clearly visible therein, one might suspect Gambhir to be prparing for the next big game of his life: a carrer in politics.

Gambhir has always been vocal over various issues plaguing the nation and often rails against the political maneuvering of various national parties, especially the BJP and AAP. Ever eager to demonstrate his knowledge of current events and society's problems, Gambhir is literally a poster-boy of Twitter, as we explore below.

He took Delhi's political masters to task over the pollution crisis in the region.

He had a heated exchange with Omar Abdullah over the death of Mannan Wani.

He naturally had an opinion on the Amritsar train tragedy, in which a group of Ramlila revellers were run over by a speeding train.

He also tackled the sensitive issue of famrer suicides, calling out political parties over their inaction.
