New Delhi: The former Australian cricket team batsman Matthew Hayden on Monday made a controversial statement about Indian team captain Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. He has indirectly raised questions about India’s celebrity culture. Now if you say anything against Rohit it will be impossible to get a place in the team. Similarly, I choose Virat Kohli as the only opener in the T20 team. “Otherwise, they don’t give place in the team,” he said. Hayden’s statement is now the cause of discussion on social media.

He criticized the audience present at the stadium during the 2023 World Cup. He indirectly called them arrogant. The Australian team reached the semi-finals with great difficulty. The role of the fans in creating a healthy atmosphere in the finals is important. But they did not cooperate. Star culture is more important than cricket in India. “That is not acceptable,” he said.
