Gautam Gambhir, the unsung hero of 2011 World Cup, drew a lot of flak from fans on twitter for his remarks on MS Dhoni’s match-winning six in the final. In the reminiscence of the 2011 World Cup triumph, espncricinfo tweeted a picture of MS Dhoni’s six, to which Gambhir replied “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.”

The comments did not go well among the fans as they roasted Gautam Gambhir all ends up.

“Gautam Gambhir wants credit”

Cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir was at the receiving end as many overlooked his 97-run contribution in the final. “Gautam Gambhir is a guy who would help her daughter with homework and next day reach her school demanding credit for it,” one of the fan tweeted.

“on this day in 2011 Gambhir and his fans started crying and then never stopped,” another said.

“Gambhir finishes off in style! A magnificent strike into the crowd. India lift the World Cup after 28 years,” a third fan taunted.



Gautam Gambhir also received support from fans 

In the final, India were reeling at 31/2, when Gambhir stepped in to bat and steadied India’s ship. His cautious knock of 122-ball and key partnerships with Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni enabled India to fight back in the chase after losing two early wickets.

A lot of fans also came out in support for Gautam Gambhir. Check out their comments here:
