Gavaskar blasts at Kohli’s applause on Ganguly
Former Indian batsman Sunil Gavaskar expressed some hard opinion over the comments made by Virat Kohli on Sourav Ganguly in the post match presentation.
India outclassed Bangladesh in the first ever day-night Test match of both teams in Eden Gardens, Kolkata. India won by an innings and 46 runs and ended the game within just three days, that too in the first session of day 3.
In the post match presentation, Indian skipper Virat Kohli credited his fast bowlers to the dominating victory. Also he talked some words about the BCCI president, Sourav Ganguly as he is the one who took the great initiative for the day-night Test. Kohli lauded Ganguly’s effort as captain in 2000s.
But another former Indian batsman Sunil Gavaskar is completely upset with those words from the Indian captain and he said India started to win as many as games in 1970s and 1980s too. Gavaskar expressed his disappointment over Kohli’s words in the air.
“This is a fantastic win but I would like to make a point. The Indian captain said that this thing started in 2000 with Dada’s team. I know Dada is the BCCI president, so maybe he wanted to say nice things about Dada. But India was also winning in 1970s and 1980s. He wasn’t born then,” Sunil Gavaskar said on air.
“A lot of people still think that cricket started in only in 2000s. But the Indian team won in 1970s overseas. Indian team won in 1986 overseas. Indian team drew series overseas. They lost like other teams did,” he added.
