When it comes to Indian cricket, one really cannot get to admire enough of Sunil Gavaskar’s contribution to the game. He’s one of the key contributors in India’s 1983 World Cup and is the first Indian batsman to score 10,000+ runs in International test cricket. After having retired from the game, Sunny G, as he’s fondly called seems to be enjoying the second innings of his life quite well in the commentary box for many years. However, this year during IPL, Sunil Gavaskar found himself in a spot of bother when he ended up making a casual reference at Anushka Sharma while talking about Virat Kohli’s dismal performance in IPL 2020 so far.
Anushka Sharma too didn’t leave any stone unturned to react to Gavaskar’s comments and the internet got divided when it comes to opinion on this context. While some felt Gavaskar’s comments were derogatory and sexist, the other side of netizens feel that it was all in the right spirit and Anushka Sharma overreacted to the statement.
So readers, what do you all feel? Did Anushka Sharma overreact to Sunil Gavaskar’s statement? Yes/No? Let us know your views in the comments below and for more updates, stay tuned to IWMBuzz.com
