Gavaskar – reacted on a Kohli video featuring wife Anushka Sharma during the lockdown – where they both engage in a fun moment with each other involving cricket.
In the commentary box, Gavaskar had said that all the bowling Kohli faced during the lockdown was from Anushka Sharma and with a tennis ball.
Some years back, agitated by the posts against her wife, Kohli had said, “Shame on those people who have been having a go at Anushka for the longest time and connecting every negative thing to her. Shame on those people calling themselves educated. Shame on blaming and making fun of her when she has no control over what I do with my sport. If anything she has only motivated and given me more positivity.”
