Suresh Raina Credits Unsung Hero Gautam Gambhir For 2011 World Cup Win

Just a few days ago, fans across the country celebrated 9 years of India’s great triumph in the 2011 World Cup final. The host nation won the world cup after 28 years and etched their names in history to be the first country to win the World Cup at home soil. The Indian team was led by the MS Dhoni, who stood up on the occasion, and finished the match in style with a maximum – a moment that fans can never forget. 

However, Gautam Gambhir who usually opens the batting for Team India but came on to bat at number three that night, is often credited as the unsung hero. Despite losing the bigwigs – Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar – quite early in the game, it was Gambhir who steadied India’s then sinking ship with his brilliant innings of 97┬áruns.
