Gavaskar's comment on Virat Kohli's dropped catches rocks social media

Royal Challengers Bangalore's captain Virat Kohli's wife Anushka Sharma, responding to Indian batting great Sunil Gavaskar, said that his commentary on her husband's performance was "distasteful". He felt the lack of practice was quiet evident in Kohli's performance as they were chasing a challenging 207-run target. The Indian skipper dropped two crucial catches and was dismissed after scoring only a single run from five balls, which eventually led to the Challengers being beaten by 97 runs. The former cricketer-turned-commentator took a dig at Virat Kohli and said that he only trained against Anushka's balls during the lockdown.

Former India allrounder Irfan Pathan has thrown his support behind Sunil Gavaskar who recently faced criticism from Anushka Sharma as well as several cricket fans for his on-air comments.

This has not gone down well with Anushka.

While on one hand Kangana mentioned that Gavaskar should not have mentioned Anushka's name, she also stated his statements should not be misinterpreted and added that "only a sex starved pervert will find sexual context to #SunilGavaskar's statement". So Virat has played only that bowling in this lockdown period. On September 21, 2020, when RCB had registered their first win in IPL against SRH, Anushka Sharma had taken to her IG handle and posting a picture of the match-winning moment of RCB against SRH, had congratulated her husband for the fantastic win.

Reacting to Sharma's Instagram post, Gavasker told a TV channel, "Firstly, I would like to say again, where am I blaming her?"

India skipper Virat Kohli said that he did not miss cricket as much as he expected during the months-long break caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

"I'm just only stating what was seen on the video which was maybe recorded by somebody in the neighbouring buildings and put up and that's the only thing I'm doing, but the point I'm making trying to make is that there was no practice for anybody including Virat in the lockdown".

Right before the couple flew to Dubai for IPL 2020, Anushka and Virat were seen quizzing each other with questions about their professions, their personal lives and a round of 'who's most likely to.' in a hilarious '#TakeABreak'session. Shame on blaming and making fun of her when she has no control over what I do with my sport. He also said that he did not blame her for his failures.

Gavaskar was speaking in Hindi when he made the comment.

Both Gavaskar's comments and Anushka's reaction have triggered a fresh debate online.
