New Delhi: Former India skipper and legendary opening batsman Sunil Gavaskar on Tuesday echoed Virat Kohli's sentiments with regards to Anushka Sharma's influence on the Delhi batsman's career.

Earlier in the day, Kohli had slammed social media trolls for incessantly attacking the Bollywood actress.

In an interview to NDTV, Gavaskar not only praised Anushka, but also hit out at those having a go at her.

"I have no idea about the current status of their relationship but she is a lovely girl and they looked absolutely terrific together," he said.

"She brought a lot of stability to his career at a time when he was just emerging as linchpin of India's batting. He himself has now said that she brought a lot of positivity in his life," he further added. 

Gavaskar also said that Anushka helped India's Test captain grow as a human being.
