Virat Kohli’s controversial statement divides Indian cricket

After an impressive first three matches in the ongoing Asia Cup, Virat Kohli was dismissed on a duck against Sri Lanka.

The former skipper recently hogged the headlines for his candid interview after the team’s defeat against Pakistan.

Virat revealed when he left the Test captaincy, only MS Dhoni texted him.

His comments didn’t go well with Indian legend Sunil Gavaskar, who said, “Virat must name and shame the players from whom he was expecting the message. And what message does he want? Encouragement? But he is done with the captaincy, so why would he need that.”

World Cup winner Madan Lal spoke along the same lines as his former teammate and said Kohli shouldn’t have said such words during the Asia Cup. “It will only bring distraction.”

However, former India wicket-keeper Deep Dasgupta has backed Kohli and said his comments were blown out of proportion.

“I feel Virat’s words were taken out of context. Possibly, he was talking about not being in the right mental place and opened up on not receiving calls from the players. I guess it’s fair to have expectations.”
