Gautam Gambhir further said, “So his sister and brother came and then after we won… then he realized when the whole country was celebrating. He asked, “Why is the whole country celebrating? And I said that we have won the World Cup after almost 20 years. If you ask him about it now, he is ashamed to have rejected that offer. While his brothers and sisters were there.”
