Former India cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has clarified his statement that he made regarding Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli.
“The point I am trying to make is that there was no practice for anybody, including Virat in the lockdown. I am not being sexist. If somebody, has interpreted it, what can I do,” he said.
Kohli’s RCB had a bad day at the office on Thursday against KXIP after they lost the match by 97 runs. The franchise was slapped with criticism form all around.
Gavaskar too made some remarks about Virat Kohli and his captaincy that also included Anushka Sharma’s name. The remarks didn’t really go well with Anushka and she posted a stern message for the former cricketer on her Instagram story.
Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) thumped Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by 97 runs in Dubai on Thursday. After being put into bat, KXIP skipper KL Rahul smacked the first ton of the tournament as he scored an unbeaten 132 to take his side to 206/3 in 20 overs.
RCB’s Dale Steyn was hammered for 57 runs in four overs while Umesh Yadav was hit for 35 in three overs.
In reply, RCB had a dismal start to the chase losing three wickets early in the innings including captain Virat Kohli. Aaron Finch and Ab de Villiers tried to steady the ship for RCB but both the batsmen departed soon. Bangalore kept losing wickets at regular intervals and were bowled out for 109.
Ravi Bishnoi and Murugan Ashwin scalped three wickets apiece.
