Former Indian batsman Gautam Gambhir remains one of the finest openers to ever emerge from his country. The talented southpaw was known for his unwavering commitment on the field and is now setting the example post-retirement through his generosity amidst the troubling coronavirus crisis.
Gambhir, who represents East Delhi in the Lok Sabha, recently donated his two years’ salary to the government relief funds set up to fight the COVID-19 threat in India. His kind gesture was soon lauded by everyone as praise poured in from a plethora of fans.
Later on, Gambhir’s significant contribution was acknowledged by the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore. Gambhir greeted RCB’s tweet with a polite response, claiming that he never liked losing to his archrivals in the IPL but they have now won him over.
