“Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are professionals, and they will put their heads down and go out to win matches for India, but the story won’t stop even 20 years later,” Sunil Gavaskar wrote in his column for Sportstar.
Gavaskar also pointed out that sometimes a frustrated player is responsible for giving wings to such stories. “Whoever starts such stories is definitely not a well-wisher of Indian cricket. More often than not it’s a frustrated player in the squad who gives wings to stories like this. His envy and jealousy harms the team. Then, of course, it suits some administrators to play their own game of politics,” he added.
“For the media, it’s manna from heaven and so while it can be suppressed when the cricket is on, the rest days between games is where the story gets fanned further,” he said.
