Former India player Rohan Gavaskar on Friday posted a throwback photo of him batting as a kid to shut down a troll, who had questioned his credentials. Rohan, son of Indian cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar, represented India in 11 ODIs. He had long and successful career in domestic cricket, playing over a hundred first-class matches and List A matches respectively. He current plies his trade as a cricket commentator and is part of the crew for the ongoing Indian Premier League. Recently, a social media troll tried to take a dig at Rohan by asking about his career.
“@rohangava9 is now commentator in #IPL2022 . When did he played and retired actually. Am I missing #Cricket,” a Twitter user posted.
The former India all-rounder was quick to hit back at the troll, sharing a picture of himself playing cricket during his childhood.
“Proof that I did play cricket,” replied Rohan.
