Sunil Gavaskar had questioned why Virat Kohli was an automatic selection for the post of India captain, saying that the Indian selection committee should have had a formal meeting to reappoint Virat Kohli as skipper of the Indian team. Calling the selection committee “lame ducks”, cricketing legend Sunil Gavaskar had said that while players like Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik “get dropped after below expectation performance, the captain continues despite much below par expectations”. Former India batsman Sanjay Manjrekar took to Twitter to oppose Gavaskar’s take on Virat Kohli’s captaincy and his remarks on the Indian selectors.

Countering Sunil Gavaskar, Manjrekar said that India “did not put in a ‘much below par WC performance’ they won 7 lost two”.
