"As you get with the discourse, Aakash and I were doing critique for the Hindi channel. What's more, Aakash was discussing the way that there has been next to no possibility for appropriate practice for everyone. That has really appeared in the corrosion of a portion of the major parts in their first matches. Rohit didn't strike the ball well in his first match, MSD didn't strike the ball well, Virat additionally didn't strike the ball. The greater part of the batsmen have on account of the absence of training," Sunil Gavaskar disclosed to India Today. 

"That was the point that was being made. Virat additionally had no training and the main practice that they had when they were seen them playing in their structure compound and Anushka was bowling to him. That is the thing that I said. That is the main bowling, I have not utilized some other word. She was bowling to him, there's nothing more to it. Where am I accusing her? Where am I being misogynist in this? I am simply expressing what was found in the video which was possibly recorded by someone in the neighboring structures and afterward set up. That is the main thing I am doing," he included.

"The point I am attempting to make is that there was no training for anyone, incorporating Virat in the lockdown. I am not being chauvinist. On the off chance that someone, has deciphered it, what would i be able to do?" he said. 

"I might want to state it once more. Where am I accusing her? I am not accusing her. I am just saying that the video said that she was bowling to Virat. Virat has played just that bowling during the lockdown time frame. It's a tennis ball, a great game that individuals need to sit back during the lockdown. There's nothing more to it. Where am I reprimanding her for Virat's disappointments?," he included. 

The batting legend proceeded to state that he could never go too far as he himself has been a devotee of cricketers' spouses going with them on visits. 

"You know me, I am the person who has consistently batted for spouses going with husbands on visit. I am the one that a typical person setting off to the workplace for a 9-5 work, when he returns home, he returns to his better half. Essentially, cricketers, when they go out for a visit or in any event, when they are playing at home, for what reason wouldn't they be able to have their spouses with them? 

"Since after their working hours are finished, they need to return to their spouses like each other average person does. Thus, I am not accusing her," he said.
