Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, wife of India captain Virat Kohli, criticized Sunil Gavaskar for his distasteful comments on Thursday.

Royal Challengers Bangalore lost an IPL match against Kings XI Punjab on Thursday night. On that match, Kohli was failed with the bat when comes to chase after dropping two easy catches. Here on the commentary box, Gavaskar was discussing Kohli’s lack of practice during the lockdown.

Gavaskar came up with a comment involving Kohli’s wife Anushka. “During the lockdown, Kohli has got habituated of facing his wife’s bowling. But that is not going to be enough,” Gavaskar said.

Anushka Sharma responded with an Instagram post slamming Gavaskar for his ‘distasteful’ comment.

She wrote, “Mr. Gavaskar, your message is distasteful. Why you thought of making such a sweeping statement on a wife accusing her for her husband’s game? I’m sure over the years you have respected the private life of every cricketer while commentating. Don’t you think you should have equal respect for me and us?”

“It’s 2020 and things still don’t change for me. When will I stop getting dragged into cricket,” she added.
