Sunil Gavaskar's comments come close on the heels of Virat Kohli himself hitting out against social media trolls for targeting Anushka Sharma.
Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar has lambasted all those who troll Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma by linking her to Virat Kohli’s on-field performance after every India match, terming them “frustros” with no love in their lives.
His comments come close on the heels of Kohli himself hitting out against social media trolls for targeting Sharma by saying that those who blame her for anything negative in his cricket career should be ashamed of themselves.
“All I can say is that they are frustros. I don’t have an idea of the status of their relationship. But she is a lovely girl and they looked absolutely terrific together. And she brought a lot of stability in him at a time when he was just emerging as a lynchpin of India’s batting. He himself has said that she has brought a lot of positivity in his life and career,” Gavaskar told Indian media.
The former captain felt Anushka has helped Kohli grow both as a human being and as a cricketer. “For people to say that she was sitting in the stands and he got out. What would he get? he doesn’t get to see her if he gets out on the first ball.
He can’t go out from the dressing room and meet her up over there. So, all I can say is they are frustros and they have no love in their lives, and therefore, they are taking it out on the poor girl, who has been there, been a support and backed him. “In my opinion, she has only helped him grow as a human being and as a cricketer,” said Gavaskar.
Talking about Kohli’s cricketing brilliance, Gavaskar said the Delhi lad has shown that one doesn’t need to play slam bang cricket even in T20 format.
