Former India opener Gautam Gambhir has questioned the culture of making Indian cricketers a star. He said in an interview to The Indian Express, ‘This has been happening since the 1983 World Cup. Not only did Kapil Dev get you the World Cup, but you made him a star and started worshiping him. Same happened with Dhoni and Virat. Only these two did not help India win the match.

In 1983, for the first time, the Indian cricket team won the World Cup under the captaincy of Kapil Dev.

Indian cricket is the real hero
Gautam Gambhir also lashed out at the fans and broadcasters. Gambhir further said, ‘Don’t create a star or a hero in the dressing room. Indian cricket should be the real hero, not a person. Instead of making a single player big, we should focus and focus on making the whole team big. Fans and especially the broadcasters showing the match should think this. He should respect Indian cricket. Not a single player.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni led India to the 2011 World Cup under his captaincy after 28 years.

Virat was praised, not Bhuvneshwar
Giving the example of the match against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup, Gambhir said, ‘The day Virat Kohli scored his 71st century, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, a bowler from small town Meerut, also took 5 wickets in the same match. Nobody even talked about them.

This is really unfortunate. I was the only person who constantly discussed about Bhuvneshwar during commentary. Bhuvneshwar took 5 wickets in 4 overs, but I don’t think anyone else would have known about it.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar took 5 wickets in the last match of the Asia Cup against Afghanistan, but he was not discussed after Kohli scored a century.

After Virat’s innings, the country got angry even after celebrating
Gambhir did not stop here, he also expressed his anger over the celebration after Virat Kohli’s century. He said, ‘Virat’s innings was praised a lot. The whole country was celebrating. We have to get out of this culture. Be it cricket or politics. Social media followers are the most fake thing in the country.

Questions have also been raised about Virat’s opening batting
A few days ago, Gambhir had said – As soon as Virat scored a century against Afghanistan, everyone started praising him. We all start forgetting the contribution of KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma, who have been doing well for a long time.

Suddenly a debate starts that Virat should be opened. Think, what must be happening to Rahul watching all this? You should keep your top players pressure free before big tournaments. Especially players like Rahul who have more ability than Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. We have seen proof of this many times in IPL and International cricket.
