Anushka Sharma slams senior cricketer for his cheap comments
Published on Sep 25, 2020 4:27 pm IST

Yesterday’s IPL match between Kings Eleven Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore was one-sided but that was not the only news that made headlines.

One of the comments made by Sunil Gavaskar regarding Kolhi has sent outrage in the media and the senior cricketer is being trolled heavily. Yesterday, Kohli dropped two catches in the match, and Gavaskar, who was on Hindi commentary made a cheap comment saying “Inhone lockdown me to bas Anushka ki gendon ki practice ki hai.’

The above comment did not go well with many and messages have been pouring in support of Kohli. But looks like Anushka has not taken things easily and she posted a lengthy message saying Gavaskar’s comments were distasteful.

“That, Mr Gavaskar, your message was 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 for 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? It’s 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.” posted Anuhska
