Ahmedabad: Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar on Friday lashed out at England's Jonathan Trott, saying the player "breached the spirit of cricket" by refusing to acknowledge that he had not cleanly taken a catch on the opening day of the first cricket Test. (File Photo)
Fielding at first slip on the first day, Virat Kohli offered a catch which Trott claimed to have taken cleanly but then the TV replays showed otherwise.
"It was quite clear that the spirit of cricket was breached. I think there should have been a sanction against Trott," Gavaskar said.
