As in, “What Message Did He Want?” Virat Kohli’s “Only Dhoni Texted” Remark, According to Sunil Gavaskar

Sunil Gavaskar, a former captain of the Indian cricket team, has stated that the “other folks” who did not get in touch with Kohli should have been “identified.”

Virat Kohli had an extremely emotional news conference after scoring 60 against Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2022 Super 4 match on Sunday. The match was part of the tournament. After he stepped down as Test captain one year ago, the former leader of the Indian cricket team claimed that no one contacted him, with the exception of MS Dhoni.

“When I announced my departure as captain of the Test team, I received a message from only one other person with whom I had played earlier, and that was MS Dhoni. I can say one thing, and that is that MS Dhoni was the person. There are a lot of individuals who have my number, and a lot of people offer their advice on TV, but none of the people who have my number have messaged me. When the relationship that you have with someone and the respect that you have for them are authentic, it will show in this way “Kohli stated.

Sunil Gavaskar, a former captain of the Indian cricket team, has stated that the “other folks” who did not get in touch with Kohli should have been “identified.”

“I have no idea what was going on in there with all of these other players behind closed doors in the locker room. In an ideal scenario, if he has named one person who got in touch, then maybe he should have also named the other people who didn’t get in touch. Instead of assuming that the other individuals weren’t able to communicate with him, it would have been a more fair approach to take toward everyone involved “Gavaskar stated this in a conversation that was shown on India Today.

In a different conversation, which was shown on Sports Tak, Gavaskar asked the following question: “What message did he want?” “Encouragement? But after that, he won’t be captain anymore, so why would he need support at that point? That part of the story (captaincy) has already been finished.”

He was of the opinion that if one steps down from the role of captain, the best part is being able to concentrate completely on one’s own game.

“You are merely performing in the role of a cricketer at this point. Concentrate on that duty, because as captain, it is your responsibility to consider and address the concerns of the other members of the crew. After you’ve finished serving as captain, it’s time to turn your attention to your own performance “the illustrious headlining performer said.

When he stepped down as captain in 1985, shortly after leading his team to victory in the Benson & Hedges World Championship of Cricket held in Australia, he did not receive any letters of congratulations or phone calls of any kind. He made sure to note this fact. “After the (B&H) World Championship of Cricket in 1985, I decided to step down as captain. That evening, we celebrated, and we hugged each other, but other than that, what else would you expect?”
