Sunil Gavaskar’s name from India tops the list when he refers to the greatest batsmen in world cricket. Gavaskar’s record of scoring 10,000 runs in Test cricket for the first time is still debated today. After saying goodbye to international cricket in 1987, Gavaskar made his mark as a commentator. However, this question certainly arises in the minds of every Indian fan, despite having such a good understanding of cricket and having a good career, why the former India captain did not express his desire to occupy the position of coach of Team India. Now Gavaskar himself has answered that.

Speaking on The Analyst YouTube Channel, Gavaskar said, “I am a terrible cricketer even when I play cricket. If I came out, I would watch the match intermittently. I would look around for a while and then go inside and go to the change room or read something or answer the letter. And after that they went back and watched the match again. So I was not a ball-by-ball match watcher like Gundappa Viswanath or my uncle Madhav Mantri. And if you want to become a coach or a selector you have to watch the match ball through the ball. That’s why I never thought about it. ‘

The former India captain added, ‘Some people were coming to me. Not much at the moment, but you could say Sachin, Rahul Dravid, Ganguly, Sehwag and Laxman. So I was very happy to share notes with them. So yeah, I could have helped them in some way, but I can’t do this job on a full time basis. Gavaskar, however, continues to give his opinion as an expert on cricket and commentary on most of India’s matches.
