Fans Lambast Gautam Gambhir for changing his Facebook cover photo on MS Dhoni’s 40th birthday

Former Indian Opener Gautam Gambhir drew the anger of Indian fans on social media on Wednesday after the 2011 World Cup winner uploaded a photo of himself from his iconic 97-point lead in the above-mentioned final as his Facebook cover photo.

Coincidentally, Gambhir changed his cover photo following the former skipper’s 40th birthday MS Dhoni.

Both Gautam Gambhir and MS Dhoni played iconic balls in the 2011 World Cup final to help India win the title after a gap of 28 years.

While Gambhir struck a brilliant 97, MS Dhoni closed the course with an unbeaten 91.

Dhoni’s six from Nuwan Kulasekara to win the final achieved iconic status. Gambhir has always felt that his turn did not enjoy the respect.

Last year, Gambhir slammed ESPNCricinfo for a social media post on the 9th anniversary of India’s World Cup, where the portal mentioned Dhoni’s iconic six in the caption.

Gambhir responded by saying that the World Cup is a team effort and that it is high time they overcame their “obsession for a six”.

Following Gambhir’s latest antics, fans have encouraged social media to tax the former opener on Twitter.
