Even though this is a moment to remember, Gautam Gambhir did not take it lightly. He responds to it by lashing out and showing negativity. According to him, he feels that giving credit to only MS Dhoni is not justified.

His point is that the World Cup of 2011 was won by the entire Indian team and staff. Therefore, fixating on just one boundary comes across and obsessive and needs to be rechecked.

Now, the primary reason why this moment is highly spoken about is because of it being the finisher. The second MS Dhoni sent the ball hurling towards the boundary for a six, every Indian in the crowd went berserk.

Obviously, the entire Indian team made their contribution. However, the final over was a crucial one. The final was between India and Sri Lanka. Therefore, there was an equal chance of both sides winning. The point from where MS Dhoni hit the boundary is when India’s needs 5 runs from 3 balls.

On top of that, the way he tackled the delivery is probably one of the smoothest six’s he has played in his career.
