Sunil Gavaskar has said that his comments on Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma during Kings XI Punjab’s victory against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League on Thursday have been taken out of context.
Kohli had a bad day in the office on Thursday as he dropped two catches of rival skipper KL Rahul and managed only a run off five balls in RCB’s chase.
While Kohli was still at crease, Gavaskar said India captain is keen to improve and he knows that he can do so only by practicing more and more. He then added that during the lockdown Kohli faced only Anushka’s bowling and it is showing that it did not help much.
Gavaskar was speaking in Hindi when he made the comment. However, the comment ended up leading to a seemingly unnecessary controversy on social media.
