Today is 2nd April, the day is special because 9 years ago on the same day, India won the world cup after 28 years. However, one man who hasn’t got over his role that day was Gautam Gambhir. The former India cricketer, who is now a BJP MP, still seems to harbour a deep resentment for how people remember the day.
It all began after ESPNcricinfo posted a photo of MS Dhoni’s winning six on Twitter. “#OnThisDay in 2011, the shot that sent millions of Indians into jubilation,” read their caption.
Replying to ESPN handle, Gambhir tweeted: “Just a reminder @ESPNcricinfo: #worldcup2011 was won by entire India, entire Indian team & all support staff. High time you hit your obsession for a SIX’’. For years, Gambhir seems to live with that feeling that he hasn’t got the credit he deserves for helping India win the World Cup 2011. He was after all the highest scorer in the 2011 World Cup final.

As is the general notion, people tend to not appreciate Gambhir’s contribution in the night of the final. Perhaps it was the same emotion which got the better of Gambhir to write this tweet.
