Sunil Gavaskar was one of the finest and most accomplished opener batters of all moment. His technique was based on near-perfect precision and massive attention abilities. It’s difficult to imagine a more exquisite defense: practically impenetrable, it made his wickets one of the most difficult to obtain. He was equally at ease on both front and back feet had good length and line discernment and were perfectly balanced.
He had almost every tactic in the book, but he sacrificed panache for the steadiness his team required. Sachin Tendulkar surpassed Gavaskar’s milestone for most Test hundreds, yet numbers alone do not convey Gavaskar’s genuine significance to India.
He won esteem for Indian cricket and instilled competence in his colleagues. He was the catalyst for Indian cricket’s maturation. Gavaskar has worked as a television pundit, researcher, and writer after his retirement, as well as holding different positions with the BCCI and serving as head of the ICC cricket commission. After several inflammatory comments, he stood down from the latter to pursue a career as a television journalist and pundit.
Sunil Gavaskar is now spectating in the IPL 2022 tournaments, and he made a remark regarding Shimron Hetmyer’s wife during the encounter between Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings on May 20 at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. The public reacted negatively to this, and many internet consumers asked that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) fire Little Master, as he was known throughout his playing career.
The Caribbean sportsman, who is playing at the moment for RR in the IPL 2022, had a break from synopsis to give birth to his first child, but he is now returned and was part of that team that competed against MS Dhoni’s CSK.
Shimron Hetmyer batted at number six for his squad, and RR required 47 runs in 31 balls to win the game at the moment. Sunil Gavaskar sparked a debate when he quipped,
“Hetmyer’s wife delivered; will Hetmyer deliver for the Royals now?”

While people did think that this might be very inappropriate for a commentator on air so pass something like that which is borderline sexist.
Fans were enraged by this remark, and many rushed to social networking sites to criticize the former Indian batsman.
Gavaskar faced a lot of backlash online because of his distasteful comment
Sunil Gavaskar regularly reminds us not to choose our life heroes on the basis of professional exploits.
Someone can be a world beater skillfully but to have a right moral compass is a totally different thing

Sunil Gavaskar is one of the worst and most shameless commentators around. He has no sense of reality and still living in the 80s making these crass jokes. He should be banned immediately. And please have a woman commentator in the booth so these old men can learn some respect. https://t.co/nEw7i92RPw
