During the first Test match between England and India in Nottingham, Star Sports India posted a YouTube video. Sunil Gavaskar and Virender Sehwag, two legendary cricketers, were featured in the video. They were having a nice talk about famous pastries named Mishti Doi in the video.
Sunil Gavaskar, a former Indian cricketer, claimed he enjoys the dessert Mishti Doi and that it is a must-try for him whenever he visits Kolkata. Gavaskar remembered an instance when he was captain of the Indian team and Sourav Ganguly’s father used to come to the airport to greet them. He claimed that Ganguly’s father, who was the secretary of the Bengal Cricket Association, kept a lot of Mishti Doi in the fridge for him.
“The father of current BCCI president Sourav Ganguly, who was secretary of the Bengal Cricket Association at the time, used to come to the airport to greet us, and after we got to the hotel, he used to store a lot of Mishti Doi for me in the hotel fridge,” Gavaskar said.
Gavaskar, on the other hand, had a problem with the current BCCI president, Sourav Ganguly. He explained:
“My only criticism is that, whereas the former secretary of the Bengal Cricket Association used to bring a lot of Mishti Doi, the present president of the BCCI does not.”
Sunil Gavaskar, a former Indian cricketer, believes India will win the five-match Test series against England. Depending on the weather in England, he believes India will win 4-0 or 3-1. He also thinks England’s batting lineup is vulnerable. Gavaskar declared:
“My prediction is… once again, I’m making it weather-dependent. If the weather in August is like this… The weather was absolutely fantastic when I left England around ten days ago. Most of the time, it was really hot. It’s raining a tiny bit, according to what I’ve heard. If the weather remains hot for 22 of the potential 25 days, I believe India will win 4-0.”
“In a situation where the weather is a role, I think India will win 3-1,” Gavaskar said. “But I think India will still win because England is now a very depleted squad, and their batting, as we saw in the series against New Zealand, is brittle,” he said.
