On Thursday, Virat Kohli had a tough time on the field as he was thrashed by 93 runs in the match against Punjab. The cricketer was subjected to a lot of criticism by his fans and supporters. People on social media are also criticising his action on feild. Even the respected cricketer, Sunil Gavaskar, who was sitting in the commentary box during the match, criticized the cricketer by saying that he did not practice well for the watch.
His actual words were “Inhone lockdown me sirf Anushka ki bowling ki practice ki hai” This comment was perceived by many as unpleasant and totally useless.
On Friday, in an interview with India Today, Gavaskar responded to Anushka’s Instagram story by saying, “Firstly, I would like to say it again. Where am I blaming her? I am not blaming her. I am only saying that the video said that she was bowling to Virat. Virat has played only that bowling during the lockdown period. It’s a tennis ball, a fun game that people have to pass time during the lockdown. That’s all. Where am I blaming her for Virat’s failures?”
