Veterans like Mohammad Azharuddin and Dilip Vengsarkar have been among the first to have expressed their disappointment at the selectors, but former India captain Sunil Gavaskar has responded to their criticism with a no-nonsense reply while urging them back the team after the selection.
Azharuddin's tweet on India's T20 World Cup squad did not go down well with the fans, who decided to troll the former captain. Netizens pointed out Shreyas Iyer's weakness against the short-pitched deliveries and said he can be exposed on the bouncy tracks in Australia.
Latif credited former India captain Mohammed Azharuddin for shaping Tendulkar, Ganguly, Dravid and Laxman. While Sachin made his India debut under Krisnamachari Srikkanth in 1989, he played a lot of cricket under Azharuddin's captaincy in the early part of his career.
