Sunil Gavaskar’s comments on Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli are going trending on social media. The public has found it derogatory despite the fact that the former cricketer only meant to add a bit of sarcasm in the commentary panel.
The performance of Kohli for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) can clearly be seen as he failed to score in all two matches that have been played by the Red Army till yet in the IPL 2020.
