From time to time, former Pakistani players express their anger at the ban on Pakistani players from playing in the IPL. Now, former Indian team veteran Sunil Gavaskar has lashed out at a derogatory comment made by a former Pakistani player about Indian cricketers. According to Sunil Gavaskar, the IPL may have reduced the aggression between the players from different countries, but you still see the same kind of competition between them.
Sunil Gavaskar wrote in his midday column that whenever two highly ranked teams play against each other, you will see competition. Although after the start of IPL, the verbal war between the players is not seen as before, but the competition between them has not been reduced at all. Staying together for 6 weeks and sharing the same dressing room also gave the players a chance to understand each other.
Gavaskar further wrote in his column that there was a time when there was a lot of verbal warfare between the players, in which foul language was also used, but now all this is a thing of the past. In today’s time, if such a thing is seen on the field, then it is those players who do not get a chance to play in IPL and have hatred towards Indian players. Some of them feel that their achievements are more than Indian players getting crores from IPL.
Many former Pakistani players keep commenting on Indian players from time to time. Regarding this, Sunil Gavaskar said that those who follow this game know that by saying anything through an online medium, they will immediately appear in the eyes of the people and whenever they make some comments about the Indian players, those players Fans also comment on this and it is a very sad thing. Many former players from across the border do this all the time where they comment on the Indian players and say that this Pakistani player is better. With this, he would have known that there would be an immediate response from India to his statements.
He knows this way of increasing his following very well and that is why he does not shy away from making any statement about Indian players, whether you look at his past or present statements. Have you ever seen an Indian player talk like that about a player from across the border before or now? Naturally, no one cares and that’s why you never see our players doing it and it’s not our style either. If our online media stop paying attention to your statements, you will automatically stop giving such statements, but the media will continue to publish your statements.
