When asked about the possibilities of a farewell game, the Gambhir said he doesn't think a farewell game should be held for any cricketer.

When asked about regrets in his cricketing career and the 2015 ICC World Cup snub, Gambhir said, "Some players who played with me got the opportunity to play in 2-3 World Cups. While I got to live that feeling only once, I am happy that the experience ended with the team winning the title. When someone plays a key role in helping the team earn the title, he should be given an opportunity to defend it too. It's sad that I couldn't be a part of the 2015 World Cup".
