Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar said on Monday that Virat Kohli should have disclosed the names of the former and current players who didn’t message him after he decided to step down from Test captaincy.
According to him, it would have been good for the ones who wished him after he took a big call.
Sunil Gavaskar, speaking to India Today, said he is unaware of what is happening in the Indian dressing room and why Virat revealed the information on a public platform.
Gavaskar’s comments came after Virat Kohli said that only MS Dhoni wished him when he left his post after a series defeat in South Africa.
“I don’t know what the dressing room atmosphere is. He should have named the players. That would have been fair to the ones who spoke to him rather than giving an impression that nobody got in touch with him,” said Gavaskar.
Kohli stepped down as T20I captain after the World Cup in the UAE and was sacked from ODIs.
“If I have to tell someone about their game, I will speak to him directly rather than commenting on a TV set. I do it personally,” said Kohli.
