Former Indian opener Rohan Gavaskar never really made it big enough to be recognised at the international level. Unlike his father, the legendary Sunil Gavaskar, Rohan Gavaskar failed to develop himself as an asset for the Indian cricket team despite getting a few opportunities. Rohan’s playing style had major differences from that of his father as it was marked by an attacking nature and vulnerability. What lacked in him is his father’s impeccable technique and solid temperament. While the fans still make a joke out of him comparing him with his father, this time the left-handed Gavaskar trolled himself on social media.
Rohan Gavaskar took to micro-blogging site Twitter to share a picture of himself with Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag, two of the greatest openers to don the Indian colour. Though the picture is a classy one with all the cricketers decked up in glamorous outfits and with broad smiles on their faces, it gave a dose of laughter to all the fans.
However, Rohan paired the picture with a humorous caption where he made a joke out of himself. While the caption referred to Tendulkar and Sehwag as the two greatest openers India have ever produced, it highlighted Rohan as a great opener of bottles.
The tweet read “India’s greatest openers . Tendulkar , Gavaskar , Sehwag. Two at cricket. One at bottles.”

Gavaskar’s career never really took off as expected. The Uttar Pradesh born cricketer made his ODI debut for India in the year of 2004 against the dangerous Aussies on January 18. The southpaw featured in 11 One Day Internationals for India since then but could only gather a mere 151 runs in the process. His last ODI also happened to be in the same year in September against arch-rivals Pakistan at Birmingham. He has the highest score of 54 and an average of 18.87 in the 50 over format.
