Former India skipper Sunil Gavaskar criticizes the England after they were knocked out of the ICC World Cup 2015 after Bngladesh beat them by 5 runs in their Pool A encounter t Adelaide last night. He said that the Poms are a nothing side, a overrated one and also expressed his wish that India could have got an easy draw in thae quarters if they face England than Bangladesh.
Speaking to a news channel, Gavaskar said I think it would have been easier playing England in the quarters. Look at their form. England have won only one game, they are a nothing side. Every time there is a World Cup (in) football, everyone speaks how they will do this and that but at the end of the day, they are just an overrated team both cricket-wise and football-wise.
He also praised the Bangladesh team members especially Mushfiqur Rahim, who according to him made the difference. He said Mushfiqur Rahim has been the man for the occasion for Bangladesh. He has made tremendous progress since his debut and today, helped Mahmudullah while approaching his hundred.
He concluded by hailing the passion of the Bangladeshi fans who had won over the Indian batting legend. Bangladeshi supporters are brilliant. The sub-continental supporters are a class apart. They bring excitement to the game. The Bangladeshi supporters have been waiting for success for a long time and now finally, the team has stepped up, Gavaskar concluded.
