Anushka Sharma gives fitting Reply to Sunil Gavaskars Distasteful comment

The legendary Cricket icon Sunil Gavaskar on Friday found himself in the midst of a controversy for making distasteful comments on Virat Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma in his commentary during an IPL match.

Following the forgettable performance of Virat, Sunil Gavaskar, who was in the commentary box came up saying, “Ab joh Lockdown tha to sirf Anushka ki bowling ki practice ki unhone, wo video dekhi hai, usse to kuch nahi hona hai (During the recent lockdown he only practised to Anushka’s bowling, I saw a video. But that is not going to be enough).”

Gavaskar was referring to a viral video clip of Anushka and Virat taking turns and playing Cricket at home. Well, the legends' remark, however, did not go down well with the netizens fans, with some urging the BCCI to remove him from the commentary panel.

Now, Anushka Sharma herself has responded to Gavaskar's comments. “Mr. Gavaskar your message is distasteful is a fact but I would love for you to explain why you thought of making such a sweeping statement on a wife accusing her for her husband’s game? I am sure over the years you have respected the private lives of every cricketer while commentating on the game. Don't you think you should have equal amount of respect for me and us?I am sure you can have many other words and sentences in your mind to use to comment on my husband’s performance from last night or are your words only relevant if you use my name in the process?"

"Its 2020 and things still don't change for me. When will I stop getting dragged into cricket and stop being used to pass sweeping statements? Respected Mr Gavaskar, you are a legend whose name stands tall in this gentleman's game. Just wanted to tell you what I felt when I heard you say this" Anushka Sharma posted on Instagram stories.

It may be remembered that it is not the first time Anushka was dragged into cricketing affairs.
