Friday, September 25, 2020 • Tamil Comments

Yesterday was a disastrous day on field for Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli as his side Royal Challengers Bangalore lost in the IPL 2020 match against Kings XI Punjab in a disappointing fashion.

When the Kings XI Punjab batted, The Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper dropped two catches of KL Rahul who scored an unbeaten 132, the highest individual score by an Indian batsman in the history of the IPL. When RCB batted, Kohli got out scoring just one run after top-edging a short ball from Sheldon Cottrell to be caught.

Royal Challengers Bangalore lost the match by 97 runs and the poor performance from Virat Kohli had been criticised by many. Former India skipper Sunil Gavaskar who was on commentary duty made an insensitive remark after Kohli was dismissed, and this involved Kohli's wife Anushka Sharma. Gavaskar said “Inhone lockdown me to bas Anushka ki gendon ki practice ki hain". (Virat Kohli has trained only against Anushka’s balls in the lockdown). This derogatory comment has angered netizens and fans who have requested the BCCI to drop Gavaskar from commentary duties.
