Sunil Gavaskar lashed out at the ‘faceless trolls’ who abused Mohammed Shami after his ordinary bowling performance against Pakistan in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup.
“Those who are making such remarks, do they matter? I don’t think these faceless trolls matter. We don’t care what they have to say, because they have no identity,” said Sunil Gavaskar on India Today.
Gavaskar also praised Virat for taking a stand for his teammate.
“Good to see the way Virat Kohli and other team members have rallied behind Mohammad Shami. It is a great sign. Backing each other is the key. This is what we have seen over the last week,” said Gavaskar.
Earlier, Virat hit back at trolls who attacked Mohammed Shami’s religion.
“Attacking someone over their religion is the most, I would say, the pathetic thing that a human being can do,” he said.
