Sunil Gavaskar has defended the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) amid the controversy caused by Virat Kohli’s explosive press conference on Wednesday. The former skipper revealed that he was not informed about his sacking in a proper way and there was a lack of communication on part of the selectors.
Speaking to Sports Tak, Gavaskar stated that getting a call from chief selector Chetan Sharma should have been enough. The legendary cricketer went ahead to ask what more Kohli wanted if knew about the decision.
“He was told before the public announcement, right? It’s not like he found out through the media announcement. The chairman of the Selection Committee told him before the announcement so he (Chetan Sharma) gave him (Kohli) that courtesy. It’s not like Kohli found out through the media that he’s been removed from the captaincy. So he did know. What more do you want?”
