The Indian cricket roster has been abuzz with the Kohli and Gambhir spat and the battle still lingers on that who was right and who was wrong. However, in a battle like this where the grey area is pretty predominant, it is hard to find that who should be held culpable for the same.
However, the man who created it all, Naveen ul Haq has completely vanished from the scene wherein two Indian heavyweights, two World Cup winners, and most importantly one a mentor and the other being youngster when the former was in his twilight, are at crossroads with each other.
This is what happened with Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir in the center
As Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir continued to battle hard on the ground, it was another Indian opener who had his say about the same. Virender Sehwag former Indian vice-captain, former opening partner of Gautam Gambhir and one of the most crucial cogs in the Indian wheels to get those fiery starts in the 2007 and the 2011 World Cup had an important message for both Kohli and Gambhir.
Talking to Cricbuzz, Virender Sehwag made it clear that he had no idea about what unfolded later as he had already switched off the TV after the match was over. He made it very clear that even not knowing it first hand but what followed thereafter, he picked it up from social media and was vocal about the fact that two greats of the game who had always been battling on the same side in the royal blue threads should not be fighting each other.
Here is what Virender Sehwag had to say about the Kohli and Gambhir incident
Viru said, “I switched off the TV once the match got over. I had no idea about what happened after the match. The next day when I woke up, I saw a lot of chaos on social media. What happened wasn’t right. The loser should quietly accept defeat and walk away and the winning team should celebrate. Why did they need to say anything to each other. I always say one thing, that these guys are icons of the country. If they do or say anything, millions of kids follow them and probably think ‘If my icon has done this, I would too’. So if they keep these things in mind, they would limit such incidents.”
