it's been harder for chopra, by far.
he is not scoring runs even in domestic cricket for the last two years!
give me a break!

you mean chopra, i presume. chopra barely scored runs against aussies and
pak. nothing to be proud of.
in test cricket, gambhir scored 96 vs rsa and batted decently in the series
vs pak in india (average 35.8).
i think rsa and pak are quality opposition.
he has sucked big time in the last 2 tests vs sl.
but he is getting more chances because of tina factor.
