Sunil Gavaskar Targets BCCI & Virat Kohli Over His Leave, Fans Say “Pure Jealousy Towards Kohli”

It is quite certain that Indian skipper Virat Kohli will be missed big time by the Indian team in the remaining three test matches of the series as he is one of the greatest batsmen of all times. Virat has taken paternity leave as his wife Anushka Sharma will be giving birth to their first baby in January 2021 and he wants to be with her on this special moment of their lives.

There has been a lot of debate on this issue as many feel that Virat Kohli should not leave the team mid-way in the series, especially after the humiliating defeat in the first test match while some others are of the opinion that Virat’s decision should be respected and no question should be raised on him.

However, the matter has once again gained everybody’s attention after the former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar said that partiality takes place in the Indian team. The legendary cricketer says that different rules are in place for different people, while bowlers like Ravichandran Ashwin are sidelined if they are not able to perform, some batsmen stay in the team despite their repeated bad performances.

Gavaskar has talked about this matter in his sports column which he writes for Star Sports. He writes that T. Natarajan, the Indian pacer who is a wonderful player of T20 became father of a daughter during the IPL playoffs which were played in Dubai. Gavaskar adds that as T. Natarajan came directly to Australia from Dubai, he wasn’t able to see his daughter but he was asked to stay for the test series as a net bowler after the T20 series got over. He further writes that now he will be able to see his daughter in the third week of January but the Indian captain is returning to India after first test for the birth of his baby. Gavaskar also adds that if someone doesn’t believe him, he can directly ask R Ashwin and T. Natarajan.

This has once again heated up the matter as Indian cricket lovers are already pissed-off with the performance of team India in the first test match, especially in the second innings in which the squad succumbed to its lowest total of 36 and no batsman was able to touch the double digit mark.

The loyal fans of Virat Kohli were not able to digest the statement made by the former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar. They trolled the Little Master and called it pure jealousy towards the Indian skipper. Here are some selected tweets:
