Gavaskar unhappy with Kohli's comments, says 'India has won before also'


Batting maestro Sunil Gavaskar expressed his displeasure at Indian skipper Virat Kohli's comments post-match where he said that India's winning ways started under Ganguly and that he was just taking it ahead. 

Gavaskar at a post-match show on Star Sports said that India had won series in England and West Indies way back in the 1970s and 1980s when 'Kohli was not born'

Gavaskar, clearly not impressed with Kohli's statement that India's winning ways started under Ganguly said,  "The Indian captain said that this thing started in 2000 with Dada's (Ganguly's) team. I know Dada is the BCCI President, so maybe Kohli wanted to say nice things about him. But India was also winning in the '70s and '80s. He wasn't born then."

"A lot of people still think that cricket started only in the 2000s. But the Indian team won overseas in the '70s. The Indian team also won away in 1986. India also drew series overseas. They lost as other teams did," Gavaskar added. 

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli in a post-match interaction with the press has indicated interest in playing a day-night Test on their tour to Australia. The statement comes hours after Australian captain Tim Paine after Kangaroos' victory over Pakistan sent out a cheeky invite to Kohli to play the Aussies in a day-night Test.
