CricketSunil Gavaskar's suggestion for England, Australia, 'Look after your cricket, don't interfere'

Srinagar: India’s legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has lashed out at England and Australia cricket board for interfering in Indian cricket and suggested them to look after their own affairs.

“By all means, look after your cricket interests but hey please don’t interfere in ours and tell us what to do. We will look after our interests and do it better than what you tell us to do,” Gavaskar wrote in his column for Sportstar.

“It’s been amusing to read that the Indian Premier League is once again seen as a disruptor of the cricketing calendar of other
international teams. The moment the news about the South African T20 league and the UAE T20 league came out, the ‘old powers’ started squirming and got their apologists to have a go at the IPL,” he wrote.

“The England & Wales Cricket Board has created a window for its showpiece event The Hundred when the England team don’t play any international matches”.

“The Australians, too, have scheduled their Big Bash when their contracted players will be available to play. But it’s worrying them that the UAE and the South African T20 leagues are scheduled around the same time and there’s the danger of some of their players opting to play there instead of the Big Bash,” Gavaskar added.
