Sunil Gavaskar Hints At Bias In Indian Cricket Team As Virat Kohli Gets Paternity Leave And Not Natrajan; Netizens Are Not Happy With Gavaskar
Senior cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has often made it to the headlines for his statements. This time around, he penned a column in which he mentioned the Captain of the Indian Cricket Team, Virat Kohli, taking a leave for the birth of his first child. Anushka Sharma is pregnant and the couple is set to welcome their first child in the month of January. Virat has excused himself from the test match in Australia and has decided to be with his wife. The Captain participated in the first test match and will be back with his wife soon. On the contrary bowler, Natrajan was not excused as his wife delivered a baby girl and will be returning only in January. Sunil Gavaskar shared his views on the same.

He wrote, "A match-winner, albeit in another format, being asked to be a net bowler. He will thus return home only after the series ends in the third week of January and get to see his daughter for the first time then. And the captain is going back after the first Test for the birth of his first child. That's Indian cricket. Different rules for different people. If you don't believe me ask Ravi Ashwin and T. Natarajan." While some of the netizens appreciated blunt views of Sunil Gavaskar, Virat Kohli fans are not happy with it.

A netizen wrote, "With all due respect to Gavaskar, Kohli enjoys the equivalent stature of Sachin Tendulkar in World Cricket, and he is an automatic selection, whenever he is available.. Did he have the guts to question Sachin, when he had opted out of several International series? #Natarajan." Many wrote in Virat's support. Check out a few tweets below:
