Gautam Gambhir recalled India’s victory in the 2011 WC after India won against Sri Lanka in the same stadium on Tuesday, and named real hero. Gambhir claimed that it was neither his knock of 97 nor MS Dhoni‘s winning six that led to India’s victory in 2011 WC. 

Gambhir said on Star Sports,

“People talk about MS Dhoni’s winning six, my 97 in that game, but it was Zaheer Khan who set the tone for the World Cup Final.”

India had beaten Sri Lanka at Mumbai’s Wankhede to clinch the WC title for only the second time in history. The match is remembered for Dhoni’s winning six and Gautam Gambhir’s astounding knock of 97. India had lost veteran openers, Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag early.

Dhoni remained unbeaten at 91 to win the Player of the Match award. However, Gambhir has claimed that neither he nor Dhoni was the one who made way for India’s victory but named Zaheer Khan as the real hero.

Gambhir was one of the crucial reasons behind India’s victory in the tournament. He scored 4 half-centuries including one in the quarter-final against Australia. Gambhir showcased a stellar performance in the final against Sri Lanka. Moreover, in the finals, legendary pacer Zaheer Khan took two wickets and conceded 60 runs in his 10-over spell.
