In an interview with India Today, the former cricketer says that he in no way blamed Anushka Sharma for Virat Kohli's performance in the IPL match. Sunil Gavaskar goes on to add that during his commentary he did not make any sexist comments about Anushka Sharma. He states during his interview that he only mentioned how during the lockdown period cricketers did not get any kind of practice which reflected in their respective performances. 

The former Indian cricketing legend says that he did not blame Anushka Sharma in any manner for Virat's performance in the IPL match. He also adds that there was a video clip which had surfaced some time back, which showed Anushka Sharma bowling to Virat Kohli on their building terrace. Sunil Gavaskar says during his interview, that he only mentioned how Anushka Sharma bowled to Virat Kohli in reference to the video clip, and how in the lockdown situation, that is the only bowling Virat got to play. 

Sunil Gavaskar was also quizzed about Anushka Sharma's Instagram post about her name being dragged every time into her husband's game and how she was very hurt, disappointed and upset that someone like Sunil Gavaskar made a sexist remark about her over Virat Kohli's game. Sunil Gavaskar states that he did not blame Anushka and has always been supportive of wives being alongside the cricketer husbands during tours.

She has managed to make sure commentators not saying anything that could be misconstrued in any way. Thanks Anushka for crying PC (politically correct) in the wrong way. Gone are the good old days of cricket.

Why are you slandering pigs in all of this? Pigs are actually gentle, intelligent creatures. Anushka has no such qualities.

Honestly what crap, tall men in every field get away with casual sexism. He is an expert in that field and should've been a gentleman and talked about it in a fair manner rather than making informal remarks about people's personal lives on international television. When he says it, it gives legitimacy to all the other people who have been blaming Anushka Sharma for Kohlis bad performances. Let's call it what it was - a sexist comment. And this is not the first time this is happening to Anushka Sharma. More power to you for standing up.

I said “agreed” to the original post, not to the one right after it (which actually wasn’t even there when I replied!). So annoying! To be very clear - kudos to Anushka for standing up for herself.

Remove Kohli from her name. Lets see then how much guts she has. She is no Kanagana Ranaut ki kisi ki bhi baja degi. Virat Kohli na mila hota to ab tak log bhool chuke hote. She was a flop wen she married. Pls recall her last movies. She is no superstar.

She bought her name and she got hurt. If he communicated directly abt just players performance, would had been obv non controversial. she has a right to behave how she wants to when her name is taken. lockdown was unexpected.

She should have approached him directly to sort out any misunderstanding and he could then have clarified his intention in the statements publically. For her to go public and not trust that a man of such high standing wouldn’t say such things shows the massive chip on her shoulder. She has shown what she is touchy about bc there is some truth in it and she knows that inside.

She also herself released the cricket video with virat Kohli publicly. Agar comments nahi sunna hai to release kyu karti hai aise videos. Sabka mu band chahiye isko?

She could have taken the high road and laughed it off with a quick snip. Yes, what Gavaskar said was casual sexism. What she did was grandstanding. In my view as a woman, she made it worse by showing sexists that she has a anger management issues. She could have taken the high road and not gone on a long tirade against a veteran of her husband's profession. It made her look like a hot head actress talking down to a senior and embarrassed Virat on an international level. The news reached everywhere now, I am not even Indian and I heard it in the US. Well done. Lowered the bar there further for women, Anushka. PV post this.

No. What Gavaskar sir said was a regular wife joke. HAPPENS ALL THE TIME. EVERYWHERE. Wives ke upar kitne jokes hote hai! Biwi nahi hai kya ye? Lockdown tha to kya dosto ke sath practice kar raha tha kohli? Video kyu release kiya tha cricket khelne ka?

About Deepika: As long as she is smoking weed, hash, coke whatever shit if she is doing it herself and not imposing on others, its fine. Let her smoke and get addicted and she on her own will deteriorate and die. She should not be forcing them on anyone, that is a crime. As for endorsement is concerned, even if she fakes that she is clean, its ok. Are we all squeaky clean here. No but commenting away like Gautam Buddha's sisters. So as long as she preaches good and that benefits society why should it matter even if she does drugs in real life? Listening to good and following it is OK even if it comes from fake people. This is what I feel. Dont expect perfection.

Millions of us are not to the standards of Gautam Buddha but can confidently say that never did anything wrong at all which affects other person or society. Don’t normalise drugs saying statements like no one is perfect and so on. She has done wrong knowing fully that what she is doing is wrong now let her bear consequences, don’t waste time supporting her. there are poor people around us give time for them and try to make their life better

I think the hormones are the issue. Still, I think she has the right to react when a 70 yr old mentions her name irrelevantly without her permission publicly without a reason. He had no business to bring her in, no one should talk about others' wife. He also should upgrade his sense of humuor and keep it to the players and not families.
