Gautam Gambhir T20I stats

Not only in longer formats, but when it comes to the smallest format of cricket, he also did a pretty good job for India in T20I cricket, scoring 932 runs with a strike rate of 119, which is considered a little low in T20 cricket.

However, just like in other formats, his big runs came when it mattered. In T20I cricket, his 75 against Pakistan is not only his individual highest score but it also came in the T20 World Cup final. And that makes these runs more valuable, as India were able to clinch the inaugural T20 World Cup in 2007. These runs are still considered the golden runs that Gambhir made.
