You can criticize behind closed doors – Gautam Gambhir
Regarding the criticism of KL, Gautam Gambhir told Times Now, ‘I would definitely like to say about all the discussions that have been made on social media. See, if you want to help someone or criticize someone, you can criticize behind closed doors. You shouldn’t criticize on social media. The things that happen on social media are probably meant to increase followers and create narratives.
He further said, ‘I think when India is in the middle of a series. During that time it is not the job of the experts to select or not, it is the job of the selectors. More importantly, when one is down, one should be supported. It is not because Rahul is the captain of LSG. I have full faith that when you need support, then only players and everyone should support him.
