Former Indian cricketer, Gautam Gambhir was key to India’s 2007 WT20 and 2011 World Cup triumphs. He top-scored for India in both the games when it mattered the most. Gambhir has been the epitome of resilience and determination. But, despite achieving big things in life, there is one thing that Gautam Gambhir deeply regrets in his life.
“It was pure destiny and had I not played Ranji Trophy in 12th (standard), I would have definitely gone into the NDA because that was my first love and it still remains my first love. In fact, my only regret in life is that I couldn’t join the army,” Gambhir said at a book launch, as quoted by PTI.
India’s World Cup hero has, however, found another way to stay connected with his first love. His foundation looks after the children of army martyrs and that is one thing that has got him loads of appreciation from people.
“So when I got into cricket I decided that the best thing I can do now is contribute in what has always been my first love … and I started this foundation that looks after the children of all the martyrs,” Gambhir said.
