Mumbai, April 3 (IANS) After India's historic victory in the World Cup, actor Akshay Kumar feels that left-hand batsman Gautam Gambhir was also a deserving candidate for the Man of the Match award.

After India defeated Sri Lanka by six wickets Saturday, skipper M.S. Dhoni, who hit 91 runs and the winning six, was declared the Man of the Match, but Akshay believes it should have been shared with Gambhir, who scored 97.

'What could be the better way to finish the match? Dhoni just hit a six and we won the match. We needed three runs he added three more to it,' Akshay told reporters at his Juhu residence Sudnay morning.

'The way he (Gambhir) pulled the match (for India), the Man of the Match award should have been shared by both Dhoni and Gambhir,' added the actor who played a cricketer in his last release 'Patiala House'.

Gambhir's partnership with Virat Kohli helped rebuild the innings when India were tottering at 31/2 after the early departure of openers VirenderSehwag (0) and Sachin Tendulkar (18).

Akshay watched the match with Farah Khan's family, Sajid Khan and Vindoo Dara Singh.
