Harbhajan Singh, a former Indian spinner, expressed his disappointment with former captain and teammate Mahindra Singh Dhoni being awarded credit for India’s 2011 World Cup victory. Cricket is a team sport, according to a former Indian cricketer, and one player should not be awarded whole credit for victory.
When asked about India’s World Cup victory, Harabhajan Singh was less than delighted with Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s comments. “If Australia wins the World Cup, people say Australia won the World Cup,” the former spinner, who was a member of the 2011 team, stated. When India won the World Cup, though, everyone said Dhoni had won the World Cup.”
“What did Gautum Ghambir do?” Harbhajan Singh asked, in response to the outpouring of praise for the former captain. “How did the other players react?”
Harbhajan Singh also stated that it was a team sport and that a match cannot be won unless seven to eight players perform well.
Gautam Gambhir scored 97 runs in the 2011 World Cup final, while Mahendra Singh Dhoni scored 91 runs. Despite this, Dhoni was named Player of the Match, and Gambhir’s performance was overshadowed.
