Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar has opined that over-importance must not be given to foreign players, who have been criticising the surfaces being used for the ongoing India-England series. According to Gavaskar, these ex-players are only getting publicity by raking up pitch controversies.
Indian cricketing Sunil Gavaskar, in a scathing attack on the functioning of Indian cricket, has hit out at the alleged double standards in the team. According to Gavaskar, while skipper Virat Kohli was allowed to go back for the birth of his child after the first Test, T. Natarajan, who became a father during the IPL play-offs, has been asked to stay back as a net bowler.
Pakistan legend Inzamam-ul-Haq recently revealed how former India opener Sunil Gavaskar’s advice enabled him to overcome a tough phase in his career. Inzamam went on his first tour to England following a memorable 1992 World Cup in Australia. However, he was facing constant troubles with short-pitched deliveries.
Former India skipper and legend Sunil Gavaskar has suggested that if India and Australia agree to swap the T20 World Cups then both the tournament and the Indian Premier League (IPL) can be held later in the year if COVID-19 subsides. Australia are scheduled to host the T20 World Cup later this year, and India in 2021.
