Anushka Sharma hits back after Sunil Gavaskar's comment



Kohli had a bad day in office on Thursday when he led Royal Challengers Bangalore against Kings XI Punjab. He missed two catches by rival captain KL Rahul and was able to score one run from only five balls in the chase for RCB.

While Kohli was at the crease, Gavaskar said that the India captain is keen to improve and he knows that he can only do so by practicing more and more. He then said that during the lockdown, Kohli only faced Anushka's bowling and is showing that it did not help much.

He has commented when Gavaskar was speaking in Hindi.

However, the remarks did not go down well with fans of Kohli and Anushka and some sought to sack him from the commentary panel of Star Sports, taunting him on social media.

Reacting to this, Anushka also released a statement on her Instagram page and said that Gavaskar's message was "distasteful".

Gavaskar, however, said that his comments were not understood in the right context.

According to Gavaskar, the comment was about a video clip in which Kohli and Anushka were seen enjoying some tennis ball cricket at their premises.

Gavaskar said, "First of all, I would like to say where I am blaming him. I am not blaming him. I am only saying that he is bowling to Virat as shown in the video. Virat Has bowled only in this locking period. " Told India Today channel.

"It's a tennis ball fun game in which people have to spend time during the lockdown, so that's all, so I'm blaming him for Virat's failures."

Gavaskar also alleged on social media that he made "sexist remarks".

"I am the one who has always batted for wives going on tours with wives. I am the one who has always said that like a normal man going to an office for a 9-5 job, when he is back home Comes, then he comes back. " Gavaskar said why his wives cannot do it even with his wife.

He also tried to explain his comment.

"As you can hear from the commentary, Akash was talking about the fact that there is little chance for any proper practice in lockdown, for everyone ...

"Which has shown the plight of some players in their first matches. Rohit (Sharma) did not throw the ball well, now he has got runs in the second match, MSD (Mahendra Singh Dhoni) got the ball well in the first match. Not to be killed by the way. ”He then also explained what he said.

"Anushka was bowling for her, so what I said is the only bowling. I haven't used any other words. She was bowling for her, that's all, I'm blaming her, where I'm leaving. " Sexist in

"I'm just stating what was seen on that video, which was probably recorded and put by someone in neighboring buildings and I'm just doing the same thing, but what I'm trying to do is this That no practice for anyone including Virat in lockdown.

"I haven't been sexist if someone has explained it, what can I do," Gavaskar said.
