Gavaskar, VVS advise Kohli to end row
Not too impressed with Virat Kohli’s abusive behaviour towards a journalist recently, former India cricketers Sunil Gavaskar and V V S Laxman on Thursday called on the star batsman to resolve the row amicably with the concerned scribe. Gavaskar and Laxman admitted that dealing with the media was never easy but they have never lost their cool in public even at the worst of times. “I just try to see myself in front of the mirror and try to remove from my system all those which bother me and try to be cool under severe pressure. I wish I could be as cool as M S Dhoni or a Laxman. May be a Bjorn Borg (legendary tennis player), so cool under immense pressure,” Gavaskar said. Laxman said the best way to end the row would be for Kohli to apologise to the concerned journalist. “I think that is the mutual way to lay the matter to rest. Kohli can go up to the concerned journalist and say ‘I mistook you as some other journalist’. Then the matter can be done and dusted. I have never lost my cool except on one occasion. But that too was within the four walls of the dressing room, never in public,” Laxman said.
