What he said, meant and definitely didn’t : Sunil Gavaskar

What he said:

“Someone like Amarnath would have been a better choice for the simple reason that the core of the Indian team today is from the Hindi-speaking belt.”

Sunny Gavaskar comments on the choice of Duncan Fletcher as coach of Team India.

What he meant:

“We all speak Hindi, don’t we? And Mohinder definitely does. Besides, Amarnath’s not a joker.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“We need Hindi speaking coaches to teach our boys the choicest abuses while sledging the opposition that are not easily expressed in any other language.Actually, that’s Punjabi but I could never tell the difference.And neither can they.”
