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.”
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.

Will you be okay if we give you the MOM award for 2011 WC final ? Cause I can't see you tweeting nonsense always.. 😭

We need leaders who are kind hearted AND thoughtful sir. NOT EITHER OR. We need leaders who do what their heart says being thoughtful about the consequences. A combination which this idea doesn't seem to strike. I hope it's just poetry and you function differently.

This statement itself is bigger than the 2011 world cup.

Heart doesn’t think, it pumps blood. That sounds like a dual personality disorder.

Jo karna hai karo @GautamGambhir bhai.Please don't compare 2 things of highest level.Both have their own importance and impact and both have brought laurels for the country.
We respect you as much as Neeraj Chopra.

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.
