'Media keeps showing only one six of Dhoni', Gautam Gambhir fumes again

Former India opener and Delhi MP Gautam Gambhir has once again given sharp statements regarding the 2011 World Cup. Gambhir has said that former star all-rounder Yuvraj Singh was not given due credit for the 2011 World Cup. Along with this, Gambhir lashed out at the media saying that instead of giving credit to the team, the media only exaggerated that last six of MS Dhoni.

In the 2011 World Cup final against Sri Lanka, Gambhir and Dhoni shared a century partnership to take India to victory. Both these batsmen could not score a century, but by winning the World Cup to India, they gave crores of countrymen a chance to dance. Due to the brilliant innings of these two, the Indian team was successful in winning the title after 28 years. After this victory, Gambhir constantly said that reaching the final of the World Cup and winning it was possible only because of the united performance of the entire team, but the media always showed that last six of Dhoni.

Gambhir said that other players including Yuvraj Singh, Zaheer Khan, Suresh Raina and Munaf Patel had played an important role in winning the title. "We didn't give enough credit to Yuvraj for the 2011 World Cup. Even Zaheer Khan, Suresh Raina and Munaf Patel," Gambhir told RevSportz. Sachin Tendulkar was the highest run-getter, but do we think about him? Let's talk? The media keeps talking about that MS Dhoni six. You are obsessed with individual players and forget the team." 

Let us tell you that in the World Cup 2011, Yuvraj Singh was given the Player of the Tournament award. Yuvi had performed brilliantly with the ball and bat throughout the tournament and it would not be wrong to say that it was because of him that India reached the World Cup final and then went on to win it. Yuvi took 15 wickets in the World Cup 2011 and also scored 362 runs in nine matches. In addition, fast bowler Zaheer Khan was the joint-highest wicket-taker in the competition with 21 wickets in nine matches. While batting legend Tendulkar was the highest run-scorer for Team India with 482 runs in nine matches, Gambhir says the hard truth is that no one talks about it. Whenever there is talk of World Cup 2011, only Dhoni is mentioned that he came at number four in the final and scored 91 runs and hit a six in that match to win India the final.
