Venkatesh Prasad’s ongoing comments in KL Rahul’s performance drew harsh criticism on Twitter, and the veteran has now broken his silence on the subject.
“I’ve got nothing against anybody but it’s just that whatever I feel I say it. Few people take it; few don’t. It’s up to them. It’s not that I’ve only spoken about KL Rahul. I even expressed my opinion over Sarfaraz Ahmed as well who has been performing brilliantly. I am sure that I didn’t cross the line, as simple as that. Few people have taken it very seriously and few have criticised,” Prasad told CNN News 18.
“Look I’ve got great respect and regard for KL Rahul. I’ve seen him since his Under-16 days – almost for 15 years. Having followed and worked with him at different stages be it in Karnataka, at NCA or with the Indian team.”
