“After elections, PM @narendramodi ji said just one thing – “Work so hard that you don’t have to depend on my name”. It’s been a yr of grt learning as I present my Year 1 #ReportCard Have been wanting to hav a conversation wid my Twitter family. Let’s do this – Ask GG,” tweeted Gambhir.

During the Q/A session, a fan asked: “Why are you soo anti-Pakistan?? @GautamGambhir #AskGG.”



The cricketer-turned-politician replied to the user with a heart-warming answer. Gambhir wrote, “I’m not! I don’t think any Indian is. But when we have to choose between the lives of our soldiers & anything else, we r all on the same side!”

After receiving the response, the fan looked pretty happy and appreciated the former Delhi opener for the matured answer.

“Wasn’t expecting such a positive reply from you of my question but still it’s good that you didn’t badmouth PK in the answer & I appreciate a matured reply from you. @GautamGambhir,” wrote the fan on Twitter.

Gambhir last played for India back in 2016 during a Test match against England. No one can forget his two of the most important knocks which helped India to win the 2007 T20 World Cup and 2011 50-overs World Cup.

Even in the Indian Premier League (IPL), Gambhir spread his captaincy magic when he won two IPL titles for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in 2012 and 2014.
