India lost in the final of the World Test Championship. In the final match, India was defeated by mighty Australia by 209 runs. This is not the first time that India has come to the final and lost. There have been many times over the last 10 years that a team has come so close to the title and lost. Various reasons are being given for India’s defeat on Sunday (June 12). But former legend Gautam Gambhir gave a unique reason why the team’s overall performance has deteriorated.
Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have always been more important than other players in Indian cricket. Only a few players have been given importance in the media. There have been many players who have contributed significantly to the Indian team. But they did not get the expected importance and publicity from fans and media. Gautam Gambhir is also considered as one such player, who did not get the expected importance. Gambhir has often said that the 2011 World Cup was not won by MS Dhoni alone but the entire team contributed to it. Now even after losing the WTC final, Gambhir made the same point once again.
In an interview to a medium, Gautam Gambhir said, “Maybe no one will say this, but I am speaking. Because the truth must come out. In our country, we don’t see as much love for a team as we do for a particular player. We think of a player as bigger than a team. In England, Australia and New Zealand, the team is considered bigger than the players. But that is not the case in India. All the stakeholders in Indian cricket have become mere PR agencies. Only three people are shown throughout the day. The team has not been able to win an ICC title for a long time because we are giving more importance to individual performances.”
Meanwhile, Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli clashed in the Indian Premier League 2023. This dispute between the two remained in discussion for many days. Similarly, it was also seen that Gambhir praised Virat while talking to the media on Sunday. “I have respect for Virat because of his contribution to the Indian team,” Gambhir said.
