Every time Rohit fails there will be those who will nod their heads knowingly and wink, hinting he deliberately got out,” Gavaskar wrote in a column for Sportstar.”Whoever starts such stories is definitely not a well-wisher of Indian cricket. More often than not it’s a frustrated player in the squad who gives wings to stories like this. His envy and jealousy harm the team. Then of course it suits some administrators to play their own game of politics.”Also Read | Virat Kohli-Rohit Sharma rift stories won’t stop even after 20 years: Sunil GavaskarAlso Read | India cricketers to be now tested by National Anti-Doping AgencyAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
