IND vs ENG World Cup 2023: ‘Rohit is not obsessed with individual milestones,’ Gambhir praises Rohit but sparks ‘targeted talk debate’

Praising Rohit's leadership and consistency, former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir commended him as a "selfless" player who leads by example.

India’s captain, Rohit Sharma, has been a consistent performer in the 2023 World Cup, playing a pivotal role in the team’s unbeaten run in the tournament. In India’s match against England, Rohit’s superb form helped the team recover from the early loss of three wickets, including Virat Kohli’s dismissal for a duck.

Gautam Gambhir indirect target

Praising Rohit’s leadership and consistency, former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir commended him as a “selfless” player who leads by example. However, some fans felt that these comments indirectly targeted Kohli.

Gautam Gambhir praises Rohit Sharma

Speaking during India’s sixth league game in Lucknow, Gambhir stated that if Rohit’s primary focus had been on records and numbers, he could have scored 40 or more centuries in ODI cricket. He emphasized that Rohit is not obsessed with individual milestones and is a selfless leader who leads by demonstrating the values he wants from his team. Gambhir noted that Rohit has set an example in this World Cup, even if his average or run tally might not be the highest, by putting the team’s goals above personal achievements.

Did Gautam Gambhir target Virat Kolhi

Gambhir’s comments drew mixed reactions, with some fans interpreting them as indirect criticism of Kohli. This reaction stems from a recent social media debate following India’s World Cup game against Bangladesh, where Kohli was criticized for “selfishly” chasing a century that would have equaled Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 ODI hundreds, before falling short at 95.

A victory for India in this match could virtually secure them a spot in the semifinals for the second consecutive time in World Cups while marking the end of England’s disappointing campaign in the 2023 edition of the tournament. The focus remains on achieving the ultimate goal, winning the World Cup, rather than individual achievements.
