“What did the other 10 players do? What did Gautam Gambhir do? What did the others do? It’s a team game. When 7-8 players play well only then only your team will progress,” he added.
A couple of years back, former India opener Gautam Gambhir, who played an instrumental role in India winning both the World Cups -T20 WC in 2007 and 50-over in 2011 was also of the same opinion. Reacting to a social media post on Arpil 2, 2020, Gambhir had said that the 2011 World Cup was won by entire India, the entire Indian team, and all support staff.
Dhoni so far remains the only captain to have won the T20 World Cup and the 50-over World Cup. With the T20 World Cup scheduled to take place in Australia later in the year, India would hope to replicate the same success.
