Rohan Gavaskar, the former Indian cricketer, was, without a doubt a legendary figure for Bengal in the country’s domestic circuit. Though the southpaw couldn’t play a whole lot for Team India, he was pretty much a known figure in India. At the present point in time, the 45-year-old Rohan is busy in his commentary stint during international and domestic cricket.

However, the fact that he is the son of the enigmatic Sunil Gavaskar has invited a lot of backlash for him. The veteran has often been trolled for nepotism. Recently, he posted a picture with the India Legends team, who will be taking part in the Road Safety World Series to start from March 5 at the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium, Raipur.

In the meantime, one of the fans trolled him for getting into the team, being Gavaskar’s son. The fan termed it ‘Daddy Quota’ and Rohan was quick to hit back. Nevertheless, the fan didn’t stop and continued with the banter. Rohan, then, asked him to go through facts before expressing opinions.

“Who said I was playing ?? Get your facts right and then have a go at someone. But then it’s all a bit too much to ask someone to get their facts sorted before opening their mouth. Clearly, that’s not your strong suit !!”

The fan kept continuing taking a jibe at the left-handed Rohan. “You are clearly wearing the jersey… meaning you are representing in some form… if you are just commentating why are you picking sides… your argument falls regardless of your response.. all you can do is talk things about me you’ve got no clue about! Feel for Gavaskar Sr..”

Seeing the fan unstoppable, Rohan clarified that he is a part of the support staff and not the playing squad. He also asked the fans to take clarifications before jumping into conclusions.

He replied and wrote, “Erm, no !! I’m part of the support staff. Again, get your facts right. Don’t jump to conclusions. I feel sorry for your parents too. Imagine how they must feel knowing their son is a troll. It must be a real letdown for them. Their son removing his frustrations by trolling.”
