Former Indian cricketer and World Cup hero Gautam Gambhir is one of the most talented cricketers to have ever played for India. Gambhir’s iconic knock of 97 runs in the World Cup final of 2011 is still regarded as one of the best knocks of his career. However, the cricketer was dismissed three runs short of what would have been a century for the ages, when he was bowled by Thisara Perera in the final of the 2011 World Cup final.
Besides his cricketing career, the former Indian cricketer turned politician Gautam Gambhir has been selflessly helping people across Delhi and the country in the ongoing COVID-19 crisis in the country.
The whole country is battling with the second wave of the Coronavirus pandemic and has been facing a shortage of oxygen cylinders, and other essential medical requirements and medicines. Gambhir has been providing oxygen cylinders and essential medicines among other essential things to those affected by the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
Recently, popular cricket blogger/writer, Madhav Sharma took to his Twitter and claimed that Gambhir’s World Cup stint wasn’t the best innings of his life. In his tweet, Madhav heaped praises on Gambhir for all the work he has been in the ongoing COVID crisis. He stated that Gambhir’s selfless work for the people of Delhi is the greatest contribution to the nation. He wrote:
“I used to think that [email protected]’s innings in the final of CWC 2011 was his greatest contribution to the nation. But after seeing him work selflessly for the people of Delhi in these tough situations, I have changed my mind and now I say-THERE IS MORE TO COME…MUCH MORE.”
