Gavaskar Names The Only 1 Indian Player In The Current Playing XI Who Asks Him For Advise
Sunil Gavaskar was the definition of what a proper Test batsmen should be like. His technique was incredible which helped him score 34 hundreds against the best teams and the fastest bowlers of his time, that too without a helmet. Since then he has been a cricket guru and a commentator. In an interview with Aaj Taj, the host asked Gavaskar why he wasn't in England commentating this time.
The host believed that Gavaskar could have spoken to some of the Indian batsmen about technique after they all showed lack of it in the 1st game. To everyone's surprise Gavaskar replied that these young Indian players don't talk to him or ask him for any advice. He said that Laxman, Dravid and Sachin would always come to him for advice, but today's generation cricketers have their own team of batting coaches and don't need his advice. He said only Ajinkya Rahane comes to him for some advice here and there. Well we hope more players do as it is surely needed.
