India lost Sachin & Sehwag early in a match vs Srilanka at Eden gardens in 2009.India was chasing a huge target set by srilanka.
In that match young Kohli scored 107 and Gambhir remained unbeaten at 150.
As expected, gambhir was awarded the man of the match at the presentation ceremony.
but he called young Virat Kohli and shared his MOM award with him for his brilliant innings at a crucial stage.
Ravi Shastri said " Gambhir wants to share the award to Kohli "
here is the video of that presentation ceremony.
Gambhir gave his man of the match trophy to Virat Kohli because he thought that it will boost Kohli’s confidence since Kohli was then new to international cricket then. And truly after that, Kohli never looked back.
