Anushka slams Gavaskar for ‘distasteful’ commentary during IPL

NEW DLEI (Agencies): Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli’s wife Anushka Sharma lashed out at batting great Sunil Gavaskar, after the latter took a jibe at the Indian cricket captain for his poor performance in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match on Thursday.

Kohli’s blunders made headlines during the Royal Challengers Bangalore’s match with Kings XI Punjab. The Indian skipper dropped two crucial catches and was dismissed after scoring only a single run from five balls, which eventually led to the Challengers being beaten by 97 runs.

“He [Kohli] wants to… he knows the more he practises the better he will become. Now there was a lockdown, and he has practised only against Anushka’s bowling. That is not going to help him a lot,” Gavaskar had said when the RCB skipper was batting. The Indian batting great was referring to a video that had gone viral on social media where Kohli was shot by his neighbour, facing throwdowns from Sharma on the terrace of their house.
