Fakhar Zaman wears Pakistan cap backwards: He should wear it properly, says Gavaskar

first_imgSunil Gavaskar said that Pakistan batsman Fakhar Zaman should have wore the Pakistan cap properly during their match against India at the Asia Cup on Wednesday.Fakhar wore the national cap backwards while he was bowling on Wednesday at the Dubai International Stadium. Fakhar won the cap like a rapper for the entirety of his first over and according to Gavaskar, that is not right.”Somebody, maybe the captain should tell him that it’s the national cap. He should wear it properly. You can do this in PSL (Pakistan Super League) may be but this is the national team,” Gavaskar said on air for the host broadcasters Star Sports.However, he did hand it to the umpires before bowling his next over. Gavaskar said that Dinesh Karthik should use his full name instead of ‘DK’ (Reuters Photo)Gavaskar also said that Dinesh Karthik should write his full name behind his shirt instead of his initials ‘DK’, which is his nickname in the cricketing circuit.”Maybe that’s his nickname but since the jersey carries his number, people should identify with the name. Maybe with the name he can have his initials,” Gavaskar said.Gavaskar is known to be particular about how the players wear their national jerseys and the legend has it that Gavaskar during his days as a young cricketer of Dadar Union Club was given a piece of advice by club’ mentor Vithal ‘Marshal’ Patil — “If you can’t be a cricketer, at least dress like one”.Gavaskar has always been very touchy about how players treat their jerseys and caps as he learnt a lesson from his maternal uncle Madhav Mantri, when as a kid, he had demanded to wear former’s India pullovers.advertisement”You need to earn that pullover to wear it,” little Sunny was told by his uncle.(With inputs from PTI)last_img
