“You didn’t make any kind of inquiry about him. Gambhir said that you went by Virat Kohli, reigniting the “hero-worship” debate.

Gautam Gambhir, a two-time World Cup winner and former Indian cricketer, has spoken out against the widespread practise of “hero worship” in Indian cricket. And recently, ahead of the start of Team India’s 2022 T20 World Cup campaign in Australia against arch-rivals Pakistan at the storied Melbourne Cricket Ground, Gambhir once more spoke on the subject while making a significant statement about Virat Kohli and contrasting him with one of his World Cup teammates.

Gambhir brought up the matter while discussing the India vs. Pakistan game with Zee. He thinks that since the media has turned these players into brands, fans should stop referring to the Indian cricket team as a whole and start talking about the team as a whole.

Gambhir demonstrated his point by comparing Suryakumar Yadav with some of the top cricketers on the India squad, including Virat Kohli. According to him, Kohli and Rohit Sharma have drawn more attention from fans and the media even if Suryakumar is India’s best T20I player since, in his view, the former has a far lesser social media presence and following than the two seasoned players.

According to Virat, the leti is held by Rohit and KL Rahul. Hardik Pandya and Suryakumar, two members of the Indian cricket squad, did not perform as expected in terms of performance, however. We should all be talking about the Indian team right now. Hero adoration must end. In spite of the fact that it shouldn’t, it does because media transforms these players into brands. All six of these hitters have been outperformed by Suryakumar Yadav during the last year. But you never asked me a single question about him. It’s because he doesn’t have as many social media following as other athletes have. Not Suryakumar, but even you changed your first name to Virat Kohli. The following players may be KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma. But Suryakumar and Hardik Pandya have outperformed everyone for the Indian team “he said.
