Otherwise the records that he has of winning everywhere. He hasn’t won ICC events but bilateral events whether at home or away, he has led the Indian team to wins. So there was no reason for people to be unhappy with his leadership abilities. I guess that one line might have actually been the cause where it actually started”, Sunil Gavaskar stated.
