An ex-player of India blasts broadcasters and asks them not to be 'PR machinery' for certain players.

Today, the Indian cricket team is full of star players, and there are many upcoming players as well. It has become a race to maintain their form or consistency in every match; otherwise, many are waiting to replace them in the Indian team.
They may choke under pressure because they don't play in many high-pressure situations.
Gautam Gambhir, who is a former Indian batsman, has criticized the obsession with statistics in the country and won't get results until they let it go. In an interview during the podcast with Smita Prakash, Gambhir said that the problem lies when a player's performance is under-shown and under-valued.
Gambhir said, "People who say it was an underrated knock are the people who undervalue and underappreciate. Nothing is underrated; it is under-shown and under-valued, and that is where the problem lies. The country is obsessed with stats. Til the time you let go of the obsession with statistics, you won't get results.”
