Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma felt bad & disappointed on some remarks made by Sunil Gavaskar during the commentary in yesterday’s match when RCB skipper showed poor performance against Kings XI Punjab.
Virat left two crucial catches of KL Rahul who later reached an unbeaten century & Virat during his batting stint got dismissed on one run scored off five deliveries. After Kohli’s below average performance, many videos of Sunil Gavaskar’s controversial commentary is doing rounds on Social Media. Sunil Gavaskar is heard saying during his commentary as, “Ab jo lockdown tha toh, sirf Anushka ke bowling ki practice ki unhone, voh video dekhiye. Usse toh kuch nahi banna hai”.
Anushka gave a fitting reply to Gavaskar’s comment & wrote in her Instagram stories, “That, Mr Gavaskar, your message is distasteful is a fact but I would love for you to explain why you thought of making such a sweeping statement on a wife accusing her of her husband’s game? I’m sure over the years you have respected the private lives of every cricketer while commentating on the game. Don’t you think you should have equal amount of respect for me and us? I’m sure you can have many other words and sentences in your mind to use to comment on my husband’s performance from last night or are your words only relevant if you use my name in the process? Its 2020 and things still don’t change for me. When will I stop getting dragged into cricket and stop being used to pass sweeping statements? Respected Mr Gavaskar, you are a legend whose name stands tall in this gentleman’s game. Just wanted to tell you what I felt when I heard you say this”.
In May Anushka & Virat were seen playing cricket on their terrace & the video went viral of twitter. Kings XI Punjab scored a massive 206/3 and then restricted RCB to just 109, winning by a massive 97 runs.
In past there has been various instances where Anushka has been dragged into issues related to Kohli’s poor performances & she has earlier also objected to being dragged unnecessarily into cricketing affairs.
Kohli & his team had a bad day yesterday in the match against KXIP. Kohli first dropped two crucial catches off KL Rahul which emerged very costly for RCB. Kohli again wasn’t able to do wonders with bat & got out at just one run scored off five balls in the chase for RCB. None of the RCB players could get going, with the highest scorer being Washington Sundar (30 off 27 balls).
