“Sunil Gavaskar’s Scathing Rebuke: ‘You Want Applause for Strike-rate of 118…'”

“Amidst the RCB vs GT match, the spotlight reignited on Virat Kohli’s strike rate, drawing sharp criticism from Indian cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar. The outspoken critique unfolded during the game, echoing across the cricketing world. Notably, host broadcaster Star Sports captured the intense exchange, amplifying the discourse on Kohli’s performance.”

Sunil Gavaskar, the legendary Indian cricketer, launched a scathing attack on Virat Kohli and IPL broadcaster Star Sports following Kohli’s remarks on external distractions. The contentious saga traces back to April 27, when Kohli’s outspoken critique of Gujarat spinners coincided with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) swiftly chasing down a target in just 16 overs.”

“Addressing the commentators post-match, Kohli asserted, ‘Those who scrutinize my strike rates and spin-playing abilities are the very individuals fueling such discussions.'”

In the rematch between RCB and GT, Kohli’s earlier remark once again came under scrutiny, but this time, it was Sunil Gavaskar who shed light on his fellow broadcasters’ perspective. Gavaskar highlighted that commentators only raised concerns when Kohli’s strike rate lingered at 118, emphasizing the context of Kohli’s performance. “If you’re opening and maintaining a strike rate of 118 until you’re dismissed in the 14th or 15th over, expecting applause for such a performance is a different matter altogether,” Gavaskar elaborated.

Gavaskar even took a swipe at Kohli for addressing outside distractions, something players claim they can ignore.

“All these players go on about not caring about outside noise. Really? Then why bother responding to it in any way? We’ve all had our fair share of cricket, albeit not extensive.”Gavaskar emphasized that commentators remain unbiased, solely discussing on-field events.”We don’t have hidden agendas. We comment on what we witness. Personal preferences don’t cloud our judgment. And even if they do, we focus on the game at hand,” Gavaskar stated.

Gavaskar didn’t hold back his criticism of the TV broadcaster Star Sports during the broadcast. He expressed his dissatisfaction, stating, “It’s not ideal for you to showcase someone undermining your own commentators.” He urged Star Sports to recognize that the clip questioning critics features their own commentators. “You’ve aired it repeatedly, and the message has been received by all. I’d be greatly disappointed if you choose to air it once more,” Gavaskar concluded sternly.
