Team India former cricketer, Gautam Gambhir made some very interesting comments regarding 2011 cricket World Cup finals.

“After Sehwag and Sachin got out early, I had to play a sensible inning. It was all going well till Dhoni came and notified that I was 3 runs away from my century. This put tremendous pressure on me and I forced an uncharacteristic shot against Thisara Perera. Dhoni’s words showed a lot of effect on my inning,” he said.

Incidentally Gambhir scored 97 runs in the run chase and laid a solid platform for Dhoni to capitalize on. The latter came out all guns blazing and played a stunning knock to win the world cup for India.

Gambhir’s intriguing comments are expected to draw a mixed response from the netizens.
