Sunil Gavaskar, the former Indian cricketer, was once removed as the skipper of the national team. Recalling the incident, the 70-year-old reckons that it could be because he signed a deal to play in Kerry Packer’s World Series Cricket. Interesting, it was after India beat the West Indies 1-0 in the six-match Test series that Gavaskar was removed and S Venkataraghvan was made the captain.
