Sunil Gavaskar Criticizes English Media Ahead of the England Series: Cricket Commentary Insights


Former cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has taken a swipe at the England cricket team, branding them as having the ‘biggest whingeing and moaning media in sport’ ahead of India’s upcoming five-match Test series against England. Gavaskar’s comments come in the wake of India’s recent Test match against South Africa, which concluded in less than two days, sparking discussions about the pitch conditions. Indian skipper Rohit Sharma clarified that the Indian team had no issues with the pitch and were prepared for the challenge it posed. However, he also suggested that the visiting team should refrain from complaining about subcontinental pitches.

In light of this, Gavaskar criticized England for their tendency to complain about pitch conditions when playing Test cricket in India. He remarked that the English media tends to criticize anything that doesn’t favor their team. Gavaskar also highlighted what he perceives as hypocrisy from other SENA (South Africa, England, New Zealand, Australia) countries in the past.

“These kinds of excuses, where the curator is blamed, are typical of the SENA countries. It’s reminiscent of the time before neutral umpires, when decisions by their umpires were considered ‘human error,’ while our umpires were labeled cheats and ‘Delhi Butchers’ in derogatory headlines,” Gavaskar wrote in his column for Mid-Day.

Gavaskar emphasized his point by stating that the media from the visiting team tends to criticize anything that does not suit them, anticipating similar behavior during England’s upcoming tour of India. He also mentioned that England will be arriving in India on January 22, with the first Test scheduled to begin on January 25 in Hyderabad. Prior to the series, the England team will be preparing in the United Arab Emirates, focusing on facing spinners. They will also have a specialized cook accompanying them for the duration of the series.

As the cricketing world gears up for the India-England Test series, Gavaskar’s comments have added an extra layer of anticipation and intrigue to the upcoming matches.
