New Delhi: Veteran batsman Sunil Gavaskar has landed in trouble with a controversial remark while commentating during the IPL match between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP).
Taking a swipe at RCB captain Virat’s poor batting pergormance during the match on Thursday, Gavaskar dragged in the name of the former’s wife and Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma to comment, “Inhone lockdown me to bas Anushka ki gendon ki practice ki hai.”
This fuelled outrage among twitterati who slammed the veteran for his insensitive remark. Here are some of the reactions:

"VK should look himself in the mirror"
"Inhone lockdown me to bas Anushka ki gendon ki practice ki hai"
This is clearly disrespecting and humiliating. I had already hated him for the firsr statement and now he is mocking at his wife…. How can you find it funny? pic.twitter.com/OB053xosQl

Doesn’t matter in what context he said this. There was no need to bring Anushka in this. https://t.co/TliTJnBax9

Anushka should never never be part of any news, jokes, conversations etc when talking about Virat performance. Specially after all the past incidents. Leave her alone. You sexist, misogynistic creeps.

The way this country is obsessed with bringing women in every fuckin thing. He plays that game, he performs on field Anushka Sharma has got nothing to do with it. Why is it so difficult for y'all to understand???? STOP DRAGGING WOMEN EVERYWHERE, WE AREN'T YOUR PERSONAL PROPERTY.
