Cricketing fans slam Sunil Gavaskar for his “insensitive remarks on Shane Warne”

Sunil Gavaskar, who was recently expressing his opinion on the stature of Shane Warne, termed that “Indian Spinners and Muttiah Muraltharan were better than Warne.”

It did not go down well with the fans as the former cricketer legend was slammed as the fans termed his opinion as “insensitive”.

Sunil Gavaskar said while talking about Shane Warne, “No, I wouldn’t say that (Warne is the greatest spinner of all time). For me, the Indian spinners and Muttiah Muralitharan were certainly better than Warne. Because look at his record. His record is pretty ordinary against India. He got five wickets only once in Nagpur.  Because he didn’t have a good success against the Indian team, I would rate Muralitharan over him in my book.”

His comments did not go well with the Twitterati.
