About the controversial catch he took to send back Jonny Bairstow in the England first innings, Gambhir insisted that he did not know the exact law.
"I haven't spoken about that catch to Dhoni. It just happened in such a quick time I did not realize it. I personally felt that the ball touching the body and grille it is out. Later I came to know it is not out but I did not know it."
As per the laws of the game, Bairstow was not out, but he too did not seem to know the rule and walked off thinking he was out though the ball had bounced off Gambhir's hand, hit Bairstow's helmet's grille and dropped back into his hands.
The home team opener was all praise for the Wankhede track and said it was a very good wicket and such tracks would bring back crowds to watch Test cricket.
"It's a good Test cricket wicket, it's a very result-oriented wicket. Sometimes you want to play a Test match which is not a high scoring one. There is no fun playing a Test match when someone scores 500 and other team scores 600. There is no point.
"This is what will bring crowd back to Test cricket. This is what will increase the interest of test cricket in India, when you get results and there is something happening in each and every delivery. And I have always felt playing on these kind of tracks is good fun because Test cricket is meant to be testing players.
"Test cricket is not like one-day or T20 where you just go and smash every ball. Every hundred is special on this kind of wicket," he said.
