The legendary Sunil Gavaskar on Friday found himself in the midst of a controversy for making an unsavoury comment against Virat Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma after the Indian captain’s forgettable outing in the IPL.

After dropping two catches, Kohli, undoubtedly one of the best when it comes to chases, failed with the bat, managing just a run off five balls against Kings XI Punjab in Dubai on Thursday night.

In the commentary box, Gavaskar came up with a comment involving Kohli’s actor wife Anushka.

The remark was in bad taste and did not go down well with the RCB skipper’s fans, with some of them urging the...

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli has been fined Rs. 12 lakh on Thursday for maintaining slow over-rate against the King XI Punjab.

“As it was his team’s first offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences, Mr. Kohli was fined Rs 12 lakh,” the IPL said in a release.

The legendary Indian batsman had a forgettable night at the Dubai International Stadium...

KL Rahul smashed the first century of the 2020 Indian Premier League to propel Kings XI Punjab to a daunting 206 for 3 against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Thursday.

However, the right-hander was also given a couple of reprives by none other than Bangalore captain Virat Kohli who dropped a sitter when he was batting on 83.

Trying to smash Dale Steyn’s low full toss, Rahul didn’t get enough to clear the long boundary in Dubai. Kohli moved to his right and seemingly overran a bit...
