Recently a fan questioned Rohan Gavaskar’s commentary credentials in the IPL and even asked ‘when did he play cricket’. Former Indian cricketer Rohan Gavaskar gave the fan a stunning reply that amazed everyone. Junior Gavaskar is currently in Mumbai as part of the commentary team for IPL 2022. Replying to the fan he posted a photo of his childhood in which he can be seen holding a cricket bat and captioned it: “Proof that I did play cricket :).”
In just some moments Gavaskar’s reply spread through the social media. A Twitter user has commented on the photo, “interesting set-up. can’t be bowled with yorker length stuff ‘cos pavement will save you.” Gavaskar has even replied by saying: “But the chances of lbw are vvvv high!”
In the VB series against Australia at Brisbane in 2004 Rohan Gavaskar made his debut for India and went to play 11 ODIs, scoring 151 runs. He last played for India against Pakistan in Birmingham.
His numbers in first-class cricket are excellent. In 117 matches for Bengal, the left-handed top-order batter scored 6938 runs at an average of 44.19. He had 18 centuries to his name and a highest score of an unbeaten 212. He even led Bengal in the early 2000s.
Despite his good numbers in domestic cricket, Rohan was always compared and looked at with a prism of doubt for being the legendary Sunil Gavaskar’s son. After hanging his boots as a professional cricketer, Rohan has made a name as a television broadcaster and a commentator.
