Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar on Monday slammed Australia skipper Tim Paine for sledging Ravichandran Ashwin during the drawn third Test here, saying his behaviour was “unbefitting” of a leader and could cost him his captaincy.
Australia’s famed bowling attack threw everything at India on the fifth day but couldn’t break their resolve as the visitors hung on for a memorable draw at the SCG.
“I don’t know I am not an Australian selector, but his days as captain are numbered. If you allow the Indian team to bat 130-odd overs without getting wickets, this is a very good Australian attack
. The bowling changes, the field placements, everything could have made a difference to the result,” Gavaskar told India Today.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
