Former Indian batter Gautam Gambhir is currently making headlines after a heated controversy with former fast bowler S Sreesanth. The two-time World Cup champions engaged in a verbal clash during the Legends League Cricket match featuring India Capitals and Gujarat Giants.
Gautam Gambhir known for his straightforward comments on the game and cricketers, has recently made another unexpected statement in a video that has gone viral on social media.
In a widely circulated video, Gambhir was posed with a choice between two football legends: Cristiano Ronaldo from Portugal and Lionel Messi from Argentina. Gambhir gave it a thought and then replied, “None.”

After that, he said, “Because I think I would go to Marcus Rashford.”
Recently, the former KKR captain recently discussed his intense exchange with Shahid Afridi and claimed that he moved on from it a long time ago.
In an interview on the ANI Podcast with Smita Prakash, Gambhir discussed how the media consistently highlighted his altercation with Shahid Afridi before every ‘India vs Pakistan match in any ICC event.
“When there’s a match between India and Pakistan why do they always show my fight with Shahid Afridi, there are so many other fights that have happened. Show something positive. Show when India has won the Asia Cup against Pakistan,” Gambhir said.
“At the end, it’s a game of numbers, right? In the end, how much traction you’re getting on social media, it’s not all about TRP. If you keep showing one thing then it gets negative. There are many other positive things to show as well, India has defeated Pakistan in many important matches,” he added.
