The former Indian captain, Sunil Gavaskar, who recently censured Indian selection committee, is opposed by many veterans on his viewpoints. Gavaskar denounced Indian captain Virat Kohli and also called selection committee as an organization of "lame ducks".
Sanjay Manjrekar spoke up in the defence of the Indian team and against Sunil Gavaskar at Twitter." Respectfully disagree with Gavaskar Sir with his views on Indian selectors and Virat being retained as captain.
No, India did not put in a 'much below par World cup performance', they won 7 and lost 2. Last one very narrowly, and moreover, integrity is a far more important quality as selector than stature", he added.
India only lost to England in the group stage of ICC Cricket World Cup and lost the semi-final against New Zealand in a close-contested battle. But still, many veteran cricketers lashed out on Indian selection panel, coaching staff, and the reported grouping in the team.
