Gautam Gambhir birthday: Dhoni threw me out of the team in the name of good fielder, Gambhir on his omission from team India in 2012

Former India opener Gautam Gambhir turned a year older on October 14th. The 40-years old former cricketer has been pioneer in India’s two World Cup victories. Whether it was the first T20 World Cup 2007 or the 2011 ODI World Cup, both the times Gambhir has been the top scorer for India. He has also led KKR to two IPL titles in his captaincy.

Despite of having a great cricket career, who did great things on the field, Gambhir’s cricket journey ended in a disappointing manner. Whether it was for India or, IPL franchise KolKata Knight Riders, Gambhir has given many beautiful memories to cherish.

Former Indian captain MS Dhoni has been a very polarizing figure in Indian cricket. He has led India to numerous glories, including two world cups, but Dhoni has also received harsh criticism for some controversial decisions when it comes to selection of players and treatment of senior players during his time as a captain.
