I have always heard that health, wealth and fame are the most important variables in an equation to judge the character of a person, and you can always gain these three just by walking on the right path with right attitude and some moral principles. Let us first discuss the rights and wrongs of a great person, one of the best sports persons of the country, Gautam Gambhir
As we all know that he ( Gautam Gambhir ) is extremely determined and hard-working, gentle and aggressive, calm and fiery, talented and brilliantly executed, nice and naughty, sweet and spicy, shy and decent, all at the same time and most importantly, a true patriot and one of the best citizens of country. The only question that now arises is that is he a good cricketer, Let’s look at his achievements as a cricketer
Does anyone here has any doubt for the cricketer’s abilities and if he does have any, then he needs to have a reality check and he surely needs to read the following accomplishments and then decide how Good he is…..
Can you ever forget his breakthrough performance in the 2007 Twenty-20 Cricket World Cup in which he was the highest scorer from Indian team and the highest scorer in the last match which brought us the inaugural cup, and still he Didn’t get any appreciation in any extra-ordinary forms whatsoever – Did the newspapers slept the whole night as they have forgotten this while blaming him for his injury. The mind-blowing innings of 75 that the presenters forgot to acknowledge – A Pity…
Now if this was not enough, How can one forget his performance as Delhi’s captain in the Ranji trophy and his brilliancy as a captain to have brought home the title of the winners in this most important domestic tournament only after a gap of nearly two decades ( 16 years ) and only under the Gautam Gambhir
After all, this may seem very less, But don’t worry, I have something great in kitty as well and that’s being named the test player of the year by ICC and that may not be as easy as pie but is one of the biggest and proudest moment of one’s life and that is the answer to all those who doesn’t count him as one of the greats…
Now if that may have been taken easily, here’s this fact that he was the highest scorer of the 2011 World Cup finals and the Fourth highest Indian scorer of the tournament and his knock was the crucial knock that brought India, its second world cup after the 1983 Victory just to get forgotten just because no-one actually could have been so humble to have acknowledged him as well with some award or a special recognition . I mean was Dhoni’s knock of 90 more special in any ways than Gautam’s 97 and if not, then why was he made to share the MOTM award ????
And now is the real question that always arises is that why this man has not ever received the fame factor as much as some others who deserve a little less somewhere down the line, Why has he always been behind in all the pictures, Why was he never seen sharing the limelight, He’s shy but Why does the media fraternity forget to appreciate him rather than point him for some undone mistakes, Why has he not yet received a position in top favorites of a large amount of Cricket-loving people even after having shown his performances in all the three formats of the game and at every platform ……….
