Cricket Updates: Gautam Gambhir gives back to an esteemed Cricket website
Gautam Gambhir gives back to the cricket website who said it was Dhoni’s SIX that got us the world cup trophy.
A news website on 2nd April 2020, took to their social media accounts posting the legendary helicopter shot of Mahendra Singh Dhoni from the 2011 world cup, captioning it as “Onthisday in 2011, the shot that sent millions of Indians into jubilation”. This post was the reminder of the last six shot by Dhoni, which led to India winning the world cup on 2nd April 2011.
This date is a reminder to all the Indian cricket fans of the battle we won. It’s the world cup winning anniversary for all of us. It surely took us down the memory lane of happiness and the proud moment for us all Indians when our very own cricket team held that world cup trophy after a long 28 years. The last time it happened was in 1983 when Kapil Dev was the captain of the team.
But the Ex-opener of the cricket team, Gautam Gambhir was not having it from them. He quickly took to twitter to reply to that post saying, “Just a reminder, the world cup was won by entire India, The entire Indian team and all the support staff. High time you hit your obsession for a SIX”. Although Gambhir is right about the efforts of the entire team, Gambhir was a big part of the finale as he stabilized the game after Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag’s early loss. He also ended up scoring 97 runs and missed out on a century. But we can’t help but remember the last MS Dhoni shot which got us the trophy in our hands and of course the exceptional commentary by Ravi Shastri. Gautam Gambhir later got slammed and trolled by the fans for his reply. What do you think? Was Gambhir right about making a comment?
