Former India opener Gautam Gambhir has revealed on Friday that he is deeply saddened by the defeat of the Indian cricket team at the 1992 World Cup. He wept bitterly after this defeat. On that day, he decided that one day he would give India the World Cup title. Notably, India has won 28 one-day World Cups since 1983. He was a member of the Gambhir team that won the 2011 World Cup. He scored 97 against Sri Lanka in the final.
Speaking to news agency NI, he recalled the 1992 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. India’s poor performance brought water to their eyes. Then his cousins and friends were mocked. He vowed that he would one day win the World Cup for India. “I was born in 1981 and my first big memories of the World Cup came from 1992,” he said. The tournament was played with a white ball in colorful clothes. I cried so much when India was out of the tournament. My cousins and some friends made fun of me. As a child, it was very painful for me and I decided that one day I would win the World Cup for India.

Gambhir said he thought it was impossible to play the World Cup for the country at times. But in 2011 he got this opportunity.

Gambhir was then 29 and he won the final.
