Former Indian cricketer and popular commentator Sunil Gavaskar has hinted that all is not well with the Indian team and that there are different rules for different players. In his column in Sportsstar, Gavaskar targeted Virat Kohli for his paternity leave. Gavaskar cited the example of Natarajan who had become father for the first time during playoffs of Indian Premier League and asked to fly to Australia directly from the UAE. He said Natarajan has been asked to stay back for the Test series, not even as part of the squad but net bowler. Natarajan would be returning to india only after completion of the series in third week of January and see his daughter for the first time.

Drawing comparison of Natarajan’s situation to Kohli’s paternity leave, he said there is the captain who has returned to India right after the first test. He said there are different rules for different people.

Gavaskar also revealed that Ravichandra Ashwin has suffered a lot in the team because of his forthrightness. He said Ashwin is known to speak his mind during the team meetings unlike other players who would keep nodding even if they do not agree with something. He alleged Ashwin’s forthrightness is is the reason, he is usually dropped from the team. Gavaskar said in other team, you would see a player with 350 plus test wickets and four centuries being sidelined like this.

This is not the first time Sunil Gavaskar is making headlines for making a remark about the indian skipper. During the IPL, Gavaskar was trolled for making a distasteful remark about Virat Kohli’s wife Anushka Sharma. After a poor show by Virat Kohli during a gem of IPL, Kohli had said he did not get much practice during the lockdown as he ad practiced only to Anushka Sharma’s bowling. Sharma had taken offence to the statement and hit back at Gavaskar for targeting her for her husband’s poor performance.

IND vs NZ: Can Team India save the T20 series? Check venue, time, Live streaming details for 2nd T20I here

After losing the first T20, the Indian cricket team is trailing by 0-1 in the three-match T20 series against New Zealand. The decisive second T20 of the series will be played today in Lucknow. For Hardik Pandya, a lot of brainstorming will also have to be done to choose the playing 11 in this match.

Even after getting constant support, Shubman Gill has not been able to do any feat in T20 so far. While Arshdeep Singh has performed poorly since the T20 World Cup. In such a situation, some big steps can be taken by the captain and head coach Rahul Dravid in the second match.

Shubman Gill or Prithvi Shaw?

Hardik Pandya has made it clear that Shubman Gill is his priority right now before Shaw and the Mumbaikar will have to wait. But till when? India faced a similar problem with KL Rahul, whose decent strike rate in T20s put India’s T20 squad in danger. With his exclusion from the T20 squad, Team India is still facing a similar problem in the absence of KL Rahul.

The second dilemma is about Arshdeep Singh. Even though he is India’s best performing T20 bowler, he is also the worst performing bowler. Since the T20 World Cup 2022, he has given runs at an economy rate of 11.10. In such a situation, it will be interesting to see whether Mukesh will get a chance to debut in his place after Arshdeep’s poor performance in the the first T20 match.

IND vs NZ 2nd T20I Venue and Time

The second match of the T20 series between India vs New Zealand will be played on 29 January. In this match, both the teams will clash at Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. At the same time, in the previous match, India had to face defeat against New Zealand. In such a situation, India will not make this mistake again.
