Harbhajan Singh credited for winning the match in the World Cup 2011 final, Gautam Gambhir did a U-turn on Dhoni!
Former Indian batsman Gautam Gambhir is always in discussions. Gambhir often takes sarcasm when it comes to attributing the victory to MS Dhoni. But during the commentary during the India vs. Pakistan match in the Asia Cup, he said something that went viral.
India had won the 2011 World Cup title. MS Dhoni made the team the winner by hitting an excellent six in the end. At that time Gautam Gambhir was the opener of Team India. Gambhir scored 97 runs in that match. While Dhoni played an inning of 91 not out. Whenever Gambhir talked about 2011, he always said that the team had won the 2011 World Cup. Not Dhoni alone.
At the same time, during the India vs. Pakistan match in Asia Cup 2023, when the scorecard of the match was shown on TV, Gambhir recalled that match and gave the credit of victory to Harbhajan Singh. Shortly before the final match in the World Cup 2011, Gambhir had said that Dhoni's winning shot was praised.
Yuvraj Singh's contribution is not talked about that much.
Gambhir had said that, we did not give enough praise to Yuvraj for the 2011 World Cup. Even Zaheer Khan, Raina, and Munaf Patel. Sachin Tendulkar was the highest run scorer, but do we talk about him? The media keeps talking about Dhoni's sixes. You are obsessed with individuals and have forgotten the team.
