After Calling Men Hockey’s Bronze Bigger Than WC Win, Gautam Gambhir Trolled For Another Tweet

Gautam Gambhir, the former Indian cricketer turned politician, is often in news because of his tweets and his statements and recently, he made headlines when the Indian men’s hockey team won the Bronze medal in the Tokyo Olympics after defeating Great Britain by 5-4.

What made people raise eyebrows was the fact that Gambhir called this victory bigger than the Indian cricket team’s wins of 1983, 2007 and 2011 World Cups despite being a cricketer himself. The cricket lovers were not able to understand why Gautam Gambhir made such comparisons when he was also a part of the 2007 and 2011 World Cup winning teams and he performed well in both the tournaments.

There is no denying the fact that the triumph in hockey was very special as it was after 41 years that the Indian hockey team won any medal in the Olympics but fans didn’t like that Gambhir demeaned the cricket World Cup wins in order to praise the hockey team’s achievement.

The 1983 World Cup win has its own importance in the Indian cricket history as this victory came when nobody gave the Indian team a chance to win. What made it more special is that Kapil Dev led team defeated the West Indian squad, which was considered as the strongest team of cricket world of that time, in the finals. As far as the 2007 T20 World Cup is concerned, it was the inaugural T20 World Cup so it is also very special for the Indian fans. After 28 years, the Indian cricket team was able to repeat history when they won the 2011 World Cup under the leadership of MS Dhoni.

Recently, Gambhir made a tweet in which he revealed the reason behind his harsh tweets and he wrote, “My brain has no heart. My heart has no brain. That’s why when I speak my mind I seem heartless and when I do what’s in my heart I seem thoughtless.”

The tweet was soon noticed by netizens and they once again trolled the former left-handed Delhi cricketer. Here are some of the selected reactions:













Earlier Gautam Gambhir took a dig at critics when the Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh called Neeraj Chopra’s Gold medal win bigger than India’s 2011 cricket World Cup win. Gambhir tweeted at that time, “True that @harbhajan_singh …But You shouldn’t have said this! You should not say this! You shall never say this!” with zipped mouth and laughing emojis.
