Cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar has called out his own country for allowing Virat Kohli to miss the remaining three Test matches in the Australia-India series to attend the birth of his first child while asking another player who is yet to meet his newborn daughter to serve as a net bowler.

Gavaskar, the record-setting opening batsman who missed the birth of his son, Rohan, while touring New Zealand in 1976, went on the offensive in a column for Sportstar following India’s defeat in the First Test in Adelaide.

He questioned why Kohli had left while fast bowler Thangarasu Natarajan remained separated from his family.
