Sunil Gavaskar's comments came in the wake of accusations that players and officials of the Tamil Nadu Premier League have been involved in match-fixing. An investigation is currently underway in the matter.
Gavaskar is doing commentary in the ongoing Test series between India and the West Indies. He will return to the West coast of USA after the second and final Test in Jamaica to participate in few more fund-raisers.
In his column, Gavaskar had questioned why Kohli was an automatic choice for captaincy following the team's exit in the World Cup, saying that the selection committee should have reviewed his leadership and the team's performance.
