Top Three Innings of Gautam Gambhir
206 V/s Australia at Delhi on 28th October 2009.
This was India’s best series against Australia and as such India was able to retain the Border Gavaskar Series and was subsequently responsible for anchoring the innings.

91 V/s Sri Lanka at ICC Cricket World Cup Final at Mumbai,  3rd April 2011
Another example of Gambhir innings which saved the country and anchored the innings in the most fitting manner. The team was paltry after the loss of Sachin Tendulkar and as such the onus was one batsman to stay to the end. Gambhir did that and steered India’s batting efforts towards a win and that one of the most coveted title after a gap of 28 years.

He was disappointed because he missed out the test team as he was confident to make the most. This century came in a losing cause but assured India’s performance and Gambhir performance and continued show in the CB Series saw India win the series.
