Sunil Gavaskar courted controversy in yesterday's game after he attributed Virat Kohli's poor display to having trained only against his wife Anushka Sharma's bowling during lockdown. In what is seen as a comment in poor taste, Gavaskar has been facing lot of backlash ever since.

Fans want Gavaskar to apologise
Some can be ignored but how #SunilGavaskar commented on Virat's performance is more than worst. You should apologise no matter how much you achieved or your age is.— Jay Gohil (@Jayygohil) September 25, 2020
I'm supporting you @AnushkaSharma. #Shame #AnushkaSharma #ViratKohli
If we win, it's because of team and if we lose it's Anushka's faults!— 🎀PAYOLI🎀पायोली सिन्हा🎀 (@RUHI__SINHA) September 25, 2020

Virat Kohli Didn't score run yesterday— Kushagra Pandey (@Kushagra1503) September 25, 2020
He didn't take catch either
His team lost
How the hell you can take name of her wife
If you don't embrace atleast don't disgrace#SunilGavaskar
Blame Virat, not his family
All those defending the first match fixer of cricket world #SunilGavaskar - why bring Anushka in the first place.— Ravi Mehta (@Indiafirstt) September 25, 2020
You are hired for cricketing commentary and do your job and get out.

Never knew such remarks can come up from a legend like Gavaskar sir. He must apologize what he said about Anushka...#IPL2020

Why not hate Virat for all the flops of Anushka Sharma?? It is very sad to see her facing the wrath everytime. To troll her is disgusting. Remove #SunilGavaskar from commentary.— Farah (@farhanaahm) September 25, 2020
