IPL 2017: The Gujarat Lions’ head coach Brad Hodge issued a public apology to Virat Kohli for his controversial remarks against Virat Kohli. When Virat Kohli dropped himself for the fourth Test, Brad Hodge questioned his sportsmanship and said:
“You would hope as a sportsman that he’s seriously injured. Because if you miss one game of Test match cricket and you’re fronting up the next week for RCB (Royal Challengers Bangalore) versus whoever… you’d be pretty dirty if he didn’t front up to a Test match and try and win a valuable series against Australia.”
This statement didn’t go too well with the fans in India and Brad Hodge had to issue public apology for his uninformed statement.
Ravichandran Ashwin tweeted something on a lighter note and it made us laugh. After Hodge apologised to Kohli on Twitter, Ashwin wrote:
“On a lighter note, from this year onwards 30th march will be remembered as world apology day.”
