“It doesn’t look like tomorrow,” Gambhir told PTI in an interview. At least not with me. It’s been 10 years now. I’m not someone who looks too much backwards.

“We didn’t do anything we shouldn’t have done in 2011. We were selected to play in the World Cup, we were supposed to win the World Cup. When we were selected we weren’t just selected to play in the tournament, we went down to win. As far as I’m concerned, no “There is no feeling now. We have not done anything great. Yes, we have made the country proud. People were happy. Now is the time to focus on the World Cup.”
Gambhir believes that despite being the best player, Team India has not won an ICC title since 2013 because of ‘looking back’. “If we could win the 2015 or 2019 World Cup, India would probably be considered a super power in world cricket. It’s been 10 years and we haven’t won any other World Cup. So, I’m not very interested in past achievements,” he said. ”
Gambhir said, “If I scored 9 runs, I was chosen to do this. Zaheer Khan’s job was to get wickets. We had to do our job. We are nobody’s job. “Look back at its peak moments. Yes, it’s good or right to talk about it. We won the World Cup, but it’s better to move forward than to look back.”
