The ICC World Cup 2023 is less than two months away, and the Men in Blue are sweating it hard in the nets to prepare for the mega tournament. Before that, they partake in the Asia Cup from August 30.
Ahead of the two important tournaments, Gautam Gambhir, in conversation with Revsportz, shed light on the ICC World Cup 2011, where the Men in Blue lifted their 2nd trophy. The LSG mentor has again taken a dig at the media over their obsession with MS Dhoni and his winning six.

Gambhir namedropped a few individuals from the 2011 squad who had a key role in the tournament but slammed the media for just highlighting MS Dhoni’s contribution.
“We have not credited Yuvraj Singh enough for his heroics. Zaheer, Raina, and Munaf were excellent. Sachin was the highest run-getter. But do we talk about that? The media just talks about one MS Dhoni six. You are obsessed with individuals and have forgotten the team.”
It is not the first time that Gambhir has pointed out this thing, as the 41-year-old has slammed the media for hyping Dhoni on several occasions in the past. Meanwhile, there are reports that Gambhir might skip IPL 2024 because of the Lok Sabha elections.
