according to (PTI)Former Australian Test cricketer Brad Hodge has issued a heartfelt apology to Virat Kohli as well to the Indian fans for his recent nasty comments regarding the Indian skipper’s shoulder injury and his participation in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL).
Hodge had said that if it was not a serious injury, then the Indian captain should have played the Dharamsala Test, especially knowing that the four-match series was deadlocked at 1-1.
Hitting back at Hodge, Gambhir said, “If you don’t know the extent of the injury you should not be talking about it”.
The former Australian batsman, who will again coach the Gujurat Lions in the upcoming edition of the IPL, said that his intentions were never to harm, criticize or be derogatory towards anyone.
Hodge, however, has now realized that he might have erred in his judgment with regard to Kohli’s injury and posted an apology to the Indian captain and passionate cricket fans on his Twitter account.

Hughes said both sides were probably better off with Kohli injured for the final Test as the star Indian batsman might have “gone over the top” had he played in Dharamsala.
Hughes’ comments come after a bitterly-fought Test series which India won 2-1 at home.
