Ashwin was performed very well against Australia in the first Test match he picks up 4 wickets by giving 55 runs in the first innings. Gavaskar Believes if Ashwin Has scalped those 4 wickets then he would have been made the scapegoat and dropped for the team. He claims that Ashwin faces this kind of treatment because he dares to speak his mind out during team meet ings. He also said Ashwin does not get a consistent amount of chances. that batsmen receive in the team.

For far too long Ashwin has suffered not for his bowling ability of which only the churlish will have doubts, but for his forthrightness and speaking his mind at meetings where most others just nod even if they don’t agree. If Ashwin doesn’t take heaps of wickets in one game he is invariably sidelined for the next one. That does not happen to established batsmen though,” Sunil Gavaskar wrote in his column for Sportstar.

Sunil Gavaskar also claimed that the Indian team has been unfair with T Natarajan

Some of you know that T Natarajan has become a father during IPL 2020 playoff. Then He received his maiden India Call-up and traveled to Australia with the team after IPL to participate in the India Tour Of Australia.

Following the end of the limited-overs leg in which he starred, Natarajan was asked to stay back as a net bowler for the Test series, although he wasn’t a part of India’s Test squad. Which Means He wouldn’t be able to meet his daughter at least for the third week of January.

On the Other hand, Caption Virat Kohli was allowed to take leave after the Test, as he awaits the birth of his first child.

Sunil Gavaskar was very unhappy with the decision of the India Management Team. He said why other players getting a different kind of treatment they have to apply the same set of rules for every player.

(T Natarajan) had become a father for the first time even as the IPL playoffs were going on. He was asked to stay on for the (Australia) Test series but not as a part of the team but as a net bowler. Imagine that. A match-winner, albeit in another format, being asked to be a net bowler,” Sunil Gavaskar said.

He will thus return home only after the series ends in the third week of January and get to see his daughter for the first time then. And there is the captain (Virat Kohli) going back after the first Test for the birth of his first child,” Sunil Gavaskar added.
