The Gavaskar Slow Coach
Posted by seshdotcom on June 6, 2008
I would like to share with you a Particular Incident which happened in the Inaugural World cup of 1975..It was a highly expected match between India and England & England started the innings with a Blitz and more importantly it was a Full House at LORD’S Cricket Ground and the Indians and Britishers were Palying in front of a Jampacked…Dennis Amiss Scored a Brilliant and Hastened One day Century of 137(146) runs and he also piled those runs with Good Momentum..And after that the Indian Chase continued and they were 132 for the loss of 3 Wickets at the end of the 60 overs this was because of Sunil Gavaskar Innings he scored a patient 36(174-> balls) and this made everyone including the team manager G.S.Ramchand tempestuous and the spectators were even more Angry that one of them dropped his lunch in the middle of the pitch of Agony..After this incident Gavaskar was severly censured for his Lethargic Innings which made 16,294 fans return home with nothing to take from Lord’s they were Bilked,they were Thwarted ..You Know what Gavaskar replied—>Sorry I don’t know the rules of the Game…!!!It was a moment of shame to Indians all over the World..
