Former cricketer Sunil Gavaskar was furious at a statement by Indian captain Virat in the post-match presentation after the completion of the Pink Ball Test match. Kohli praised the fast bowlers in the team's victory and described the Indian bowling attack as brilliant in the current round, which is capable of challenging the opposition teams under any circumstances.
Virat Kohli said-Test cricket is a mental war. We have learned to face it - and it started in the era of Dada i.e. Sourav Ganguly, which we are also pursuing. Confidence in this episode is an important thing and to be honest, we have worked hard and we are reaping its harvest.
Angry Sunil Gavaskar said-Playing well in Test cricket started with Sourav Ganguly's team since 2000. I know that Sourav Ganguly is the President of BCCI, so maybe Virat Kohli wanted to say good things about him. But India was also winning in the 70s and 80s. He (Virat Kohli) was not even born at that time.
Indian team's performance abroad in Gavaskar's era-
Considering all the facts, the statement of former captain Sunil Gavaskar cannot be misunderstood. The Indian team has won overseas Test matches even before Sourav Ganguly and Virat Kohli. However, around later came when the team failed to win overseas. But when Sourav Ganguly took over the captaincy, he filled the spirit in the team, which the team learned to fight at a high level.
